New Tesla software to offer 'full' autonomy, says Elon Musk

Tesla's Next Roadster Will Feature Actual SpaceX Rocket Thrusters-Elon Musk

Exactly which self-driving features will be rolled out in the update remain to be seen, but speaking with Tesla, the brand suggest the aforementioned features won't turn Level 2 autonomous vehicles into fully self-driving, Level 5 cars overnight.

Edris Rodriguez Ritchie, an attorney for the NLRB, said Tesla asked workers to sign confidentiality agreements that were "overly broad" in preventing them from publicly discussing their working conditions.

On Tesla's website, it describes upcoming features - including the ability for a vehicle to change lanes without driver input, move from one freeway to another, and exit a freeway near the driver's destination - that are not available in Autopilot's current iteration.

The Model X electric, sport-utility vehicle accelerated in the final seconds to about 71 miles an hour before the March 23 crash in Mountain View, Calif., according to a preliminary report from the National Transportation Safety Board. A spate of recent crashes has brought the system under regulatory scrutiny.

This version, unsurprisingly dubbed the SpaceX option package, will be, according to Musk, the finest vehicle in history, never to be replicated. Autopilot resources, he said, had so far "rightly focused entirely on safety". The driver followed them until taking his hands off the wheel again.

The morning crash in Mountain View on Highway 101 killed the driver, 38-year-old Walter Huang. They have cameras, radar and sonar sensors.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk has provided more details about the SpaceX upgrade package the company will offer for its upcoming Roadster sports auto.

Musk gave a hint of what could be coming with V9 in a tweet responding to an owner's complaint that his Tesla had trouble in certain high-traffic merging situations. Dubbed the "Space X Option", it is named for the rocket company Musk also controls. Ubergizmo argued that it's unlikely that Tesla's cars can suddenly be transformed into fully autonomous vehicles and that term could simply be a fancy marketing term for new features as opposed to its literal meaning. "These rocket engines dramatically improve acceleration, top speed, braking & cornering".

Bold statements. However this isn't the first time that the Tesla CEO says something that inspires incredulity. But that doesn't mean that it will, just that it could - there are still regulations and limitations on self-driving vehicles on public roads.
