Tesla's are becoming smarter by the day!

Tesla recently launched its Navigate capability on its Autopilot system, which added the ability to navigate highways based on the destination in the GPS maps system and suggest lane changes.

Elon Musk wishes to take this a step further...

On Twitter, Elon Musk teased that Tesla is already working on a solution to make the system navigate traffic lights, stop signs and roundabouts. He also revealed that Tesla's will be able to navigate a car park and park without any input from the driver which is set to be available in 2019.

“If you have a Tesla built in past 2 years, definitely try Navigate on Autopilot. It will blow your mind. Automatically passes slow cars & takes highway interchanges & off-ramps." said Musk on his Twitter.

“Already testing traffic lights, stop signs & roundabouts in development software. Your Tesla will soon be able to go from your garage at home to parking at work with no driver input at all.”

With all this taken into consideration, it looks like Tesla are getting closer and closer by the second on creating fully autonomous vehicles.

What do you think about fully autonomous vehicles? Will they ever happen?

  • I just think that in some situations it will be programmed to hurt my car to save pedestrians, and I'm not about that

  • For my journey it might be a little faster by car rather than public transport but the issue is finding a spot to park the thing. And as pt doesnt cost me anything, i think ill stick with it

  • I sure hope so. Humans are bad (and getting worse) drivers.
