Tesla has now 1.3 billion miles of Autopilot data going into its new self-driving program | Electrek

As new vehicles are coming off the assembly in Fremont right now, Tesla is making the transition from its first generation Autopilot hardware to its second generation hardware in order to gradually enable level 3 and 4 autonomous driving, and eventually fully self-driving capability, according to the automaker.As we discussed in the past, the industry is skeptical of Tesla’s ability to deliver a fully self-driving level 5 system with its new hardware suite, but there’s a reason Tesla is confident in its ability to deliver such a system. The reason is data.Electrek has learned that Tesla has now accumulated 1.3 billion miles of Autopilot data from its first generation sensor suite and “nearly all of it” is useful to the second generation Autopilot, according to the company. We reported last month that Tesla’s fleet has reached 3 billion miles driven and Tesla confirmed to Electrek last week that 1.3 billion of those miles were driven by Tesla vehicles with Autopilot hardware.
