Tesla Will Make Driver Irrelevant Soon

By  | 

Even with all the things that the current Autopilot system can do on Tesla, it still needs the driver to pay attention at all times but Tesla is working on having their Teslas drive without any help from the driver.

According to Elon Musk, future Tesla models will be able to go from the “garage at home to parking at work” without input from the driver. He also added that such a feature will be offered “soon”. Of course, with Tesla, “soon” could mean anything.

It as added that Tesla is currently testing Navigate on their Autopilot system to see if the system can learn to navigate traffic lights, roundabouts and stop signs.

Even if Tesla manage to do all that, they will also have to deal with all the regulatory obstacles that could be the horder than actually getting the vehicle to drive itself to work. With all that in front of them, you might not want to get your hopes up too high that we will actually be seeing it next year.
