Tesla owners with the most recent Hardware 3 package and a fully optioned Autopilot system have a new feature to try out. The electric carmaker this weekend began pushing a new Autopilot update with after the feature rolled out to a small group of owners earlier this year.
It’s a function Tesla’s promised for a while now for those who paid $7,000 for the “” package when ordering their car. With the feature, properly equipped Tesla cars will recognize and respond to traffic lights and stop signs. We saw one user trialing the system earlier this year, and it seemed to work without any major issue. Those with the feature will see new graphics to indicate the car recognizes a signal or stop sign and provides a red bar to show drivers where it will bring the car to a stop.
Tesla cautioned in the release notes, as quoted by Teslascope, that this feature will be “conservative” to start and “slow down often at first.” It will not attempt to turn through any intersections. As with all Autopilot functions, Tesla stressed drivers must be and explicitly warns in the notes that the feature, still in beta testing, “may not stop for all traffic controls.” The company also said the car should detect all kinds of traffic signals, however, including flashing signals.
It’s a neat trick to have the car slow down automatically, but with the need to consistently remain vigilant, Elon Musk maintains this year. This latest feature might be a small step towards more autonomy from Tesla features, but please remember, there are no self-driving cars on sale today.are far more valuable — at least to me personally.
