Tesla To Allow Fully Autonomous Features Beginning In August

Share

An update to Tesla's Autopilot software coming in August will enable "full self-driving features" for the automaker's electric cars, chief executive Elon Musk says.

Customers can pay $5,000 for Autopilot lane-keeping and lane-changing capabilities or fork out $3,000 more for full self-driving capability, which the company sold before it was available. Although stories about Tesla "drivers" sleeping and sitting in the passenger seat - and, unfortunately, crashing while reliant on the system - abound, Autopilot is only meant to operate under constant driver supervision. Previous updates to Autopilot were "rightly focused entirely on safety", he said. Instead, Tesla's new auto will be a halo product, with performance to beat even the fastest petrol production cars ever made.

Kante is certainly capable of this, but he'll have a lot of defensive slack on his plate in this system. I wish we could have Pogba like this every game. "Don't take any of Olivier's quality away from him".

Elon Musk made a surprise unveiling back in November 2017 when he presented the new Roadster.

The latest software update, which started to roll out last week, features a new feature that will increase the number of warnings it gives drivers to take control of the auto.

Autopilot in its current form is a driver-assistance system that still requires the driver to pay attention and be ready to take control of the steering wheel. Tesla owners also need to add an additional $3,000 package called Full Self-Driving Capability. With eight active cameras, the system is created to eventually support full self-driving in nearly all circumstances.

It also promises cars will automatically park themselves, having dropped the driver at their destination, and return to pick them up when summoned from a smartphone app. The company clearly states the facts of life: "Self-Driving functionality is dependent upon extensive software validation and regulatory approval, which may vary widely by jurisdiction". With V9, we will begin to enable full self-driving features.
