Tesla Starts Enabling Self-Driving Features For Enhanced Autopilot

Tesla Starts Enabling Self-Driving Features For Enhanced Autopilot

When Enhanced Autopilot and full-self driving hardware was released in October, Musk warned that those purchasing new vehicles would lack common HW1 Autopilot features, until the second-generation hardware could be brought to parity.

Musk had originally mentioned the upgrade in October as part of the larger launch of the new fully autonomous hardware being installed in new Model S and Model X units coming out of the Fremont, Calif., factory.

HW2 vehicles have updated hardware and these vehicles are capable of full-self driving. In 2014, the Society of Automotive Engineers published a classification chart for automated vehicle systems featuring six different levels of capabilities.

Tesla will check if everything goes ideal with 1,000 HW2-era vehicles (the cars sold October onwards) and will release update for other cars as well.

As we reported, Tesla ran into a problem and was unable to roll out Autopilot 2 update (Enhanced Autopilot or Hardware2 Autopilot, as it's now being referred to, to negate confusion). But thanks to the seamless integration of a 360-degree camera system and processing improvements Tesla Vision imaging software, the final version now ends up at Level 5. The update is now being uploaded to 1,000 Tesla vehicles and if all goes well, the rest of the fleet will be updated in the following week.

"Resolving an Autopilot HW2 bug that shows up when booting from a subzero cold-soak". As Electrek notes, the features are only available at low speeds and are still in their beta phase.

Even that move was not to make any money, though, as the company said it was "purely about increasing customer happiness". Therefore, their rollout will be measured and cautious until we have generated confidence across several hundred million miles of real-world usage.

However some features of the Autopilot were not enabled from the beginning like automatic emergency braking and lane guidance, as Tesla had to iron out some issues. "In the meantime, it is particularly important that you remain vigilant and in control when using driver assistance features".

Details for the Enhanced Autopilot features can be seen in the following release notes from Imgur via TMC.
