Tesla is pushing a software upgrade that will let its automobiles’ Auto-pilot system identify speed limit indications using their cams, Elektrek reported When the electronic camera discovers a speed limit sign, it will be shown on the motorist visualization in the automobile and utilized to set a speed limit warning, according to the software release notes.
The most recent software application upgrade likewise contributes to its traffic light and stop indication control features, and will sound a chime when your Tesla is sitting at a traffic light that turns green. It’s only planned as an alert so it depends on the motorist to decide whether and when to really move the cars and truck forward.
In April, Tesla rolled out a software application upgrade in beta for its more recent automobiles to allow them to see and respond to stop signs and traffic lights at some crossways. The “Traffic Light and Stop Indication Control” function was made readily available to Tesla lorries with the “full self-driving” variation of Autopilot, and when activated, slows the vehicle to stop for stoplights and stop signs.
Musk teased a development version of the Traffic Light and Stop Sign Control function back n 2018, saying “Your Tesla will soon be able to go from your garage in the house to parking at work with no driver input at all.”
But even though Tesla calls that variation of Auto-pilot “full self-driving” and in spite of CEO Elon Musk’s pledges to have totally autonomous Teslas by this year, it’s not there yet. Teslas still require people behind the wheel. The “full self-driving” plan, which Tesla costs around $7,000, offers customers access to incremental enhancements like the speed limitation and stop indication controls.
