Tesla's Autopilot to get a 'full self-driving feature' in August

Share

Tesla says it's almost ready to deliver a self-driving auto.

Tesla Inc. (TSLA) is rolling out the next version of its software in August, and it will include a focus on self-driving features, CEO Elon Musk said in a tweet. Musk tweeted that the "10 small rocket thrusters arranged seamlessly around [the] car" will "improve acceleration, top speed, braking and cornering".

Testing of autonomous vehicles are still required to have humans in the driver seat right now, and Tesla might well point to inaction as the cause of the crash as opposed to failure of its system, though the report will not enforce the insistence autonomous vehicles are safer than human operated ones.

The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) has released its preliminary findings after investigating a Tesla Model X crash while the vehicle was in autopilot mode. "With V9, we will begin to enable full self-driving features", Musk tweeted.

Tesla will issue an update to its Autopilot system later this year that will enable "full self-driving features" for the first time. But with Musk, you never know. A crossover, the Model Y, is now on the way for 2020, as is the Semi and its second sportscar, the Roadster.

Those credits are a big incentive to buy a Tesla because they can save thousands of dollars off the price of a new auto.

Spent air from the thrusters would be refilled immediately using the Roadster's batteries to power air pumps, which in lesser electric vehicles may be a reduced range concern.

The NTSB added new details, saying the driver's hands were detected on the wheel three times spanning a minute before the collision, for a total of 34 seconds.
