Elon Musk: Autopilot 2.0 To Have Most Of Its Features Enabled By “End Of Next Week”
Tesla CEO Elon Musk says that we should expect to see an update for Autopilot hardware 2 by the end of next week.
It’ll be called software update 8.1 and, according to Musk, it’ll add “most of the Autopilot functionality for HW2.”
Most, but not all…
We expect Tesla to add back in some of the more safety-oriented features (perhaps auto emergency braking, forward collision warning, blind spot detection, etc) first before moving to add the seemingly more complex functions such as Summon and Autopark coming later.
Eventually, the goal is to get Autopilot 2.0 back up to the functionality level of AP1 before moving forward with new features that will enable full self-driving by the end of 2017, according to Musk.
