4 days ago, Tesla CEO Elon Musk confirmed that Autopilot was beginning its rollout in Europe. Now we have our first video of Autopilot in use on a Model S in Sweden.
"Testdrive with the new EU version of autopilot software 7.0. A bit in country roads, larger two-lane roads, in town and on the highway."
Question: ZarlockGE -
Nice demonstration, what I am not sure about, did the car force you in any way to keep your hands on the steering wheel?
As I understand it, the American version does not, is there a difference to your version?
Answer: Oedegaarde (video creator)
+ZarlockGE Thanks! Well, the car displays a warning to keep hands on the wheel every now and then - a lot less often on freeways. You just need to put a tiny bit of preassure on the wheel, then you can let go again. If you don't do it, the car will beep and eventually slow down to a complete stop. The same is true for the US version. The big difference in the EU version is, that whan you want to do a lanechange on the freeway, you have to touch the wheel first in EU (just for a split second), but you don't have to in the US.
