Autopilot's name may sound like it can drive a Tesla electric car for you, but it's still a semi-autonomous feature that can auto-steer, keep you in your lane, brake, and accelerate the car forward as long as the driver is still paying full attention with hands on the wheel.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk claims a new Tesla software update is coming in August that will bring more autonomy to Autopilot. Musk tweeted early Sunday morning about Tesla Version 9.0 including major updates for Autopilot 2.0.
That issue is better in latest Autopilot software rolling out now & fully fixed in August update as part of our long-awaited Tesla Version 9. To date, Autopilot resources have rightly focused entirely on safety. With V9, we will begin to enable full self-driving features.
