Another, smoother Tesla Autopilot 2.0 update seems to be impressing drivers much more than the last one, which some found not nearly as silky as CEO Elon Musk promised.
Last month, Tesla started the rollout of an Autopilot 2.0 update with a new control algorithm that CEO Elon Musk described as a “smooth as silk”. While some stated that it was a definite improvement, there were still many quirks. As you can see from the previous videos that we shared, opinions were mixed, and it mostly boiled down to the situation or road type in which the car was being driven.

As most of us are well aware, Tesla is continually pushing incremental updates to the Autopilot system, and now there's yet another, reportedly even smoother update rolling out. The video (above) -- thankfully discovered by Electrek -- gives us a firsthand look at the most recent update.
This update is said to focus on minor fixes and improvements, and besides that, there is no other information. As the driver points out, Tesla's coding scheme for its updates has suddenly changed. Now, the automaker is including the year and week; 2017.28, as well as another peculiar addition; c528869.
Below are parts two and three of the video from above. These include more highway driving and lots of driving in heavy rain. Check out what the driver discovers. If you have driven with the new update, feel free to share your experience with us in the comment section below:
