Despite the fact that Tesla have fought off a good deal of worthy competition, they have been on the forefront of autonomous driving for a while now. Although their autopilot software became a subject of question several times in the past because of the accidents, however the word on the street is that their upcoming vehicle will have fully autonomous functionality. Hardware upgrades to newer models would also come along with the software upgrade including a major camera and sensor overhaul.
You must be aware of the fact that it is the goal of Elon Musk to attain full autonomy by 2019, and this new rumour would probably confirm the accomplishment of that goal. Well, there might be some people who will question the safety of full autonomy, however fully autonomous cars win out every time you consider the hazardous driving of humans.
The fully autonomous update is expected to be added only on new models of Tesla cars, nevertheless Tesla’s every autopilot system is constantly being updated. An instance is when the OS allowed Autosteer and Autopark features in 2015.
At present, the important thing to remember is that this fully autonomous operating system is merely an unconfirmed report as reporters from Jalopnik contacted Tesla and were told that they do not confirm rumours or hearsay.
