Tesla Rolling Out Enhanced Autopilot To All HW2 Vehicles

Tesla has begun rolling out the new “Enhanced Autopilot” to all Hardware 2.0 equipped vehicles, according to a new tweet from Tesla Motors CEO Elon Musk.

Tesla has begun rolling out the new “Enhanced Autopilot” to all Hardware 2.0 equipped vehicles, according to a new tweet from Tesla Motors CEO Elon Musk.

Noteworthy is that some of these vehicles will apparently require camera adjustments (through a service visit) to enable full functionality.

This otherwise over-the-air update will reportedly bring the new Hardware 2.0 vehicles roughly in line with existing Autopilot Hardware 1.0 vehicles in some ways, and in other ways improve functionality.

This update includes the new Forward Collision Warning feature, Traffic-Aware Cruise Control (TACC), and Low-Speed Autosteer. Here are the tweets in question:

Teslarati provides more: “This weekend’s software update represents the next iteration of Enhanced Autopilot which was first released in limited quantity at the end of last year, followed by a soft launch to a combined 1,000 Model S and Model X vehicles. Tesla owners that were part of the first batch to receive Enhanced Autopilot reported seeing their vehicle’s Autosteer functionality gradually coming to life after a calibration period. However, Must noted in this weekend’s tweet that some vehicles that never complete calibration may require Autopilot camera adjustments. ‘Some cars will require adjustment of camera pitch angle by service’.”

It should be remembered that this Autopilot hardware should eventually allow for full autonomous driving, thanks to “a suite of 8 onboard cameras and 12 advanced ultrasonic sensors that provide 360 degrees of visibility around the car.” For an idea of what that entails in practice, see our earlier coverage of a video that Tesla released showing fully autonomous travel: Tesla Self-Driving Car Video & More.
