Watch Tesla's Autopilot feature drive itself on a highway
Set to some mellow music, the driver turns on Autopilot and then goes hands free. The switchover is seamless, and the Model S handles the challenge of driving itself on the highway with aplomb. As expected, changing lanes is as simple as moving the stalk. Unfortunately seeing the tech work sometimes difficult in this video, as it was shot at night and is occasionally blurry.
One day, Elon Musk wants Autopilot to be able to learn as it drives and become an even better system. Until then, Tesla's 7.0 update is just the latest step as automakers work towards fully autonomous driving.
