Elon Musk Issues Series Of Autopilot-Related Tweets
Today's Autopilot is technically considered to be in the Beta stage. Later on, Tesla will release an updated Firmware that will likely bring Autopilot into a more official state. But beyond that, Tesla is looking for full autonomy (well beyond today's lane keeping, auto braking, etc) within a few year's time.
To achieve full autonomy, the Model S, Model X and Model 3 will require additional hardware and loads of specialized software. On the software front, Tesla is now seeking "hardcore software engineers" who will report directly to Elon Musk.
In fact, it was Musk who took to Twitter to announce (see Tweets above) the job openings. Musk notes that Autopilot development is "super high priority."
