Musk tells fans 'full self driving' Teslas are near, as investigators dig into Autopilot accidents
12 June, 2018, 17:34
It's not clear which features will arrive first, but Tesla says its full self-driving will allow the auto to figure out routes, navigate streets without lane markings, manage intersections with traffic lights, stop signs, and roundabouts, and handle highways.
Dubbed by Musk as "Tesla Version 9", the new software will likely only be available for Tesla vehicles with the Autopilot 2.0 features - that is, vehicles manufactured after October 2016 with the "Hardware 2" stack that Tesla claimed provides the necessary equipment to allow full self-driving capability in the future.
While Tesla is selling a full self-driving package, that does not mean that consumers will be able to use it immediately. Even CEO Musk and his wife were shown in a picture with their hands out of a Tesla sedan's windows, indicating it could operate hands-free.
The Society of American Engineers has a ranking system for self driving cars, with SAE Level 1 referring to systems such as basic cruise control, while Levels 4 and 5 refer to vehicles that need little to no human oversight.
In yet another tweet, responding to a Tesla driver complaining of the Autopilot, Musk said, "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".

Apart from the rockets, no new specs were revealed on his Twitter thread, however Musk did include some of his background history and passion for cars. But this time it was Elon Musk's own Roadster, which was launched into space atop a Falcon Heavy rocket. "COPV [composite overwrapped pressure vessel] in place of the kid seats, which is prob wise for many reasons", Musk detailed in the first talk of the vehicle since Tesla's annual meeting last week.
Right now, The Boring Company's website says they are sold out of "not a flamethrower", but you may want to check back soon. The electric sled would allow for cars to be transported at 150 miles per hour through the tunnel, Musk has said.
