Tesla Model S Can Drive Itself ... Sort Of
Tesla Model S cars can now drive themselves on the highway, but they aren't completely autonomous yet.By Ben Lawson | October 15, 2015
Trips on the highway for recent Tesla Model S owners just got a little easier. The automaker rolled out a software update that includes its Autosteer and Autopark features for models made after October 2014.
Model S vehicles are now capable of steering themselves, changing lanes and adjusting speed on the highway, but you can't exactly sit back while your car does the work just yet.
If a driver's hands leaves the wheel for more than 10 seconds, the vehicle will turn its hazard lights on and begin to slow down. Also, this is for highway driving only. The vehicle doesn't detect stoplights and stop signs yet.
