Latest Tesla Autopilot 2.0 Update Tested – 32-Minute Video
DeRage has a reputation for providing long, detailed videos for our enjoyment. This one makes you feel like you are actually behind the wheel of a Tesla, utilizing Tesla Autopilot 2.0.
The camera is mounted in a driver point-of-view location, and provides a crystal clear view of exactly what is happening on the road, on the instrument cluster, and on the touch screen. DeRage provides a continuous commentary regarding exactly what he is doing, and how the car is responding. Fortunately, unlike some of the other videos that we have seen, the audio is crystal clear.
He assures that the Autopilot (Autosteer) does, in fact, function over 55 mph, and everything seems to work properly as he travels up to 75 mph on Lake Beuna Vista highway in Florida. He also uses the Auto Lane Change features multiple times. DeRage does note that the instrument cluster is not always showing the other vehicles. He says that he assumes the vehicle is using more than one camera, because the car no longer attempts to incorrectly exit or change lanes.
DeRage’s overall impression is that the Tesla Autopilot 2.0 with the newest update is very stable. He explained that now, drivers are just waiting on some of the automated convenience feature, like automatic windshield wipers.
