Tesla Motors Inc Again Proves It's Not A Conventional Automaker (TSLA)

Furthermore on Saturday, Musk also tweeted that Autopilot for its cars with HW2 technology.

Tesla mastermind Elon Musk first teased the new system, Enhanced Autopilot, for the automaker's HW2 hardware package (which has been included in all new models since October) back in December, but the software release was delayed by bugs.

Musk made the comment when responding to a customer's Twitter question about paid upgrades for exisiting owners who want the latest equipment, possibly referring to the second generation Autopilot that was introduced on Friday that is not available as a retrofit. "It's not that they can't-it's just that they won't", said Ramsey. People are buying the wrong auto if they expect this.

The fatal crash had cast a pall over Tesla's system, prompting some critics to say that the company had overpromised simply by choosing the name AutoPilot.

"In response to a question about the value of adding "Full Self Driving Capability" to the Palo Alto, California-based company's products ahead of "regulatory approval", Musk wrote: "...safety should improve significantly due to autonomy features, even if regs disallow no driver present". Musk said the software and algorithms needed to provide that capability would roll out over time, without elaborating.

All being well, the newer HW2 Teslas will soon be out-performing their predecessors. Now, they can steer themselves at speeds up to 45 miles per hour. That code ran in what Tesla calls Shadow Mode, collecting data and comparing the human driver's actions to what the computer would have done.

Owners now have access to Traffic Aware Cruise Control, Forward Collision Warning, and Autosteer.

Beginning late past year Tesla began equipping its vehicles with a suite of cameras, radar and sonar sensors, as well as a state-of-the-art Nvidia computing system to give the vehicles the hardware needed to drive themselves. Tesla founder Elon Musk is telling customers that there will be "major" revisions every 12 to 18 months - not quite yearly, but far more frequently than the every few years (at best) you see from conventional companies, Engadget reports.
