Tesla Autopilot: Elon Musk promises 'full self-driving features' by August

It's not clear which features will arrive first, but Tesla says its full self-driving will allow the vehicle to figure out routes, navigate streets without lane markings, manage intersections with traffic lights, stop signs, and roundabouts, and handle highways.

Elon Musk, Chief Executive Officer and Co-founder of Tesla, has disclosed that the latest version of Autopilot will begin rolling out in August, which will authorize the fully autonomous capabilities of Tesla vehicles.

Tesla's Autopilot and several similar systems use torque sensors to ensure the driver has a hand (or hands) on the steering wheel. The version 9 update will be pushed out over-the-air to Tesla owners.

The company wouldn't elaborate on exactly what the features are, by the way, but we'd suggest they'll take better advantage of the Enhanced Autopilot suite listed on the Tesla website.

The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) has released its preliminary findings after investigating a Tesla Model X crash while the vehicle was in autopilot mode. "With V9, we will begin to enable full self-driving features", he said. Elon Musk said that Autopilot version 9 should arrive this August, and with it will come the first "self-driving features." .

Musk has also started to rant against the media for what he perceives to be negative coverage of Tesla.

Elon Musk is never one to do things by half and it appears his claims of building a rocket-powered Tesla Roadster a year ago weren't to be taken as a joke.

"Inevitably, somebody's not going to service their auto properly and they're going to drop a hubcap and it's going to guillotine somebody", Musk recently said at an event discussing his Boring Company's plans to build car-carrying tunnels under Los Angeles and other cities.

"These rocket engines dramatically improve acceleration, top speed, braking & cornering". He has also shared other plans Tesla Inc has for the coming years, at the company's annual shareholder meeting.

"Not saying the next gen Roadster special upgrade package *will* definitely enable it to fly short hops, but maybe...", Musk later added.
