Today Tesla is one step closer to the future of a true self-driving car in a mode that can be fully determined when to change the car. (Yes, we've just started entering the world where cars can automatically pass other cars.)
When you hit a punch at your destination, you place your hand on the handle and foot near the pedal and use Tesla's optional Navigate The "Auto Mode" mode will do its best to keep the highway in mind and will ask for confirmation before changing the lane. However, it will change to a new software update. If the driver tells you that you do not need to check for lane changes … Just change the lane.
Tesla's new press release tells how to explain the change.
In the autopilot setup menu, the operator can press the navigation custom button on the autopilot. You will then see three additional settings – Activate at start of each drive, require lane change confirmation, and require lane change notification. At the start of all trips The Enable setting allows you to set the autopilot to turn on automatically whenever the driver starts the navigation route. When activated, this feature is turned on by default every time the driver is on the freeway and uses the autopilot to the position he inserted into the navigation bar. If the operator selects & # 39; No & # 39; to check for lane changes, the lane change automatically occurs without the driver requesting first lane change . The operator can choose to receive the default visual prompt as well as hear a chime and receive notifications of upcoming lane changes. There is also the option to vibrate the steering wheel so that all cars manufactured after August 2017 will beep.
Elon Musk As pointed out by himself, the press release features a little bit of functionality.
Tesla has already tested internally and has already tested 500,000 miles with Early Access Program drivers. This feature is now available for US customers and will be featured in other markets until further validation and regulatory approvals expire. "
