Tesla Autopilot Mode

Oct 19, 2015

We knew it was only a matter of time before other car manufacturers began using autopilot mode like the Google Car. Tesla is the latest company to apply the technology to their vehicles, as the Tesla Model S’s latest update adds “Autopilot Mode” into the mix.

The software update, properly named Tesla Version 7.0, engages the Model S’s advanced hardware that includes an ultrasonic sensors, a forward radar, forward-looking camera, and a digitally-operated electric assist braking system. With Autopilot, the car can steer inside a line, change lanes with just a touch of the turn signal, and control speed with its traffic-aware cruise control. It uses technology that will help it to actively avoid collisions to the front and sides of the car. The car is so advanced, that it’s able to find its own open parking spaces and parallel park into whatever space it finds.
