Panasonic sees Tesla as deeper partner for self-driving cars too: CEO

While Musk is known worldwide as a business magnate, he is probably most well known for his ventures with Tesla Motors, the American automaker arguably responsible for the recent move towards electric cars. Tesla will raise the speed limit on Autopilot, now 45 miles per hour, "as we get more data", said Musk, also revealing that the autonomous capabilities on Hardware 2 will improve every two to six weeks via over-the-air updates.

Tesla's Enhanced Autopilot system costs $5,000 at the time of purchase.

Tesla had said in the past that drivers must acknowledge that Autopilot is an "assist feature" that requires both hands on the wheel at all times, and they must be prepared to take over at any time. Similarly, the company is trying to calibrate sensors with the launch of the Enhanced Autopilot's first phase in shadow mode, in which the features run in the background without taking the vehicle control.

But manufacturers must also design their technology "with the inattentive driver in mind", looking at how drivers actually behave when using the technology, rather than just how they should behave, Thomas explained. The company is validating its software "from the ground up", and this past weekend, Tesla rolled out a speed-restricted version of its Autopilot driver assist software for Tesla cars equipped with HW2.

Access to affordable health care is essential
A replacement for Obamacare would require 60 votes in Senate, which means some Democrats would have to get on board. Collins added, "I believe there has been a sea change in attitudes on how we should approach this dilemma".

The idea is that while its cars will be more capable in the future, they aren't quite there yet. By investing in seriously upgraded sensors, software, and hardware, Tesla has said, forget the highway, forget needing humans in the loop.

At long last - Tesla's Enhanced Autopilot update is finally active, that is, if you have self-driving capability in your vehicle. However, Tesla has not revealed when it expects to do the same with the rest of the new vehicles.

Autopilot for HW2 rolling out to all HW2 cars today. Like an iPhone, Tesla will continually improve and update. This first phase includes adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning and Autosteer, which helps keep the vehicle in its lane. Tesla founder Elon Musk is telling customers that there will be "major" revisions every 12 to 18 months - not quite yearly, but far more frequently than the every few years (at best) you see from conventional companies, Engadget reports.
