Firmware update 6.1 was recently released for the Tesla Model S. For those who have the autopilot hardware equipment, you're in for a treat!

6.1 firmware update gives the Model S multiple new features & enhancements. One in particular is the ability to use a part of the autopilot goodies. It is called "Traffic Aware Cruise Control"  (TACC).

As you set your cruise control to a speed, TACC will match the speed of the vehicle in front of you and will adjust accordingly as the vehicle in front goes slower or faster.  Additionally, you can set the distance between your Model S and the vehicle in front of you on a setting from 1-7.

You will see in the video above how it all works. For those who have the 6.1 firmware update, how are you liking it so far?
