Teslas Autopilot to get full self-driving feature in August

The rocket package "sounds like something straight out of a video game", but Musk is "completely serious about adding thrusters to the new Tesla Roadster", says Electrek. "With V9, we will begin to enable full self-driving features", Musk tweeted on Sunday, referring to the latest version of the Autpilot programme, in response to a Twitter user.

Consumer groups argue Tesla's marketing - and even the name "Autopilot", which calls to mind a free-flying jet - contributes to a risky misunderstanding for drivers, suggesting they can take their hands off the steering wheel. The driver followed them until taking his hands off the wheel again.

It is instead created to aid motorists with driving tasks like staying in lane in a bid to reduce accidents.

According to the NTSB report, the driver was using the vehicle's traffic-aware cruise control and autosteer lane-keeping assistance technology while driving on the US Highway 101, when it approached the exit to State Highway 85.

Washington is eager to see if the North's pledges were "sincere", Pompeo said, adding: "The US has been fooled before". It is also unclear whether US officials will raise human rights issues in meetings with the North Koreans.

Bold statements. However this isn't the first time that the Tesla CEO says something that inspires incredulity.

"All aspects of the crash remain under investigation as the NTSB determines the probable cause, with the intent of issuing safety recommendations to prevent similar crashes". A spate of recent crashes has brought the system under regulatory scrutiny.

As per the vehicle's programming, the Tesla provided two visual alerts and one auditory alert for the driver to place his hands on the steering wheel prior to the crash. The SUV also was equipped with automatic emergency braking.

Another crash, in Utah, has been tentatively blamed on Autopilot, the owner receiving serious leg injuries when her vehicle slammed into a parked fire truck after she had switched the system on and taken her hands off the wheel.

US Air Force deserter says went missing because 'depressed'
The report notes that Hughes was officially declared a deserter on December 9, 1983 after he returned from duty in Europe. An OSI spokesperson told the newspaper that there was no indication Hughes had given away any classified information.

But the concern is whether Tesla's vehicles will be up to doing that safely. The Tesla began steering left seven seconds before the crash, and after it no longer was following the other vehicle it began accelerating three seconds before the collision to nearly 71 miles per hour, before running into a highway barrier.

Then it hit the barrier, which was equipped with an accordion-like device to absorb impact in a crash.

'The focus isn't Tesla's technology, ' he said. They have cameras, radar and sonar sensors. 'The focus is on what led to this crash and how do we prevent it from happening again'.
