Autopilot Tesla

The head of Tesla Elon Mask last week on his Twitter page reported that the company’s specialists are working on a volumetric improvement of the software for autopilots of electric vehicles Model S and X. This became a reaction to a series of resonant accidents of advertised cars, one of which ended in the death of the driver.

New software improvements will primarily affect the additional processing of radar signals, since the functions of the autopilot are based on a harmonious combination of the radar and the camera.

The Tesla autopilot contains a whole range of technologies, including following a certain route, automatic emergency braking and advanced cruise control, automatically maintaining a safe distance with the cars ahead in front.

Unlike other companies offering similar functions, the Tesla autopilot allows drivers to take their hands off the steering wheel for a long time, while most such systems require keeping their hands on the handlebars.

In the instructions to the Tesla autopilot there are several warnings to users, in particular that they must constantly monitor the operation of the autopilot and be ready to take control of themselves. It also says that the system is intended for use only on a limited number of highways, and not in difficult urban conditions.

The upcoming upgrade of the software under version 8.0, which should be released in the next couple of weeks, will be carried out “by air” when the car is parked, so a visit to the SRT in this case is not required.
