Tesla rolls out high speed Autopilot version 8.1 update

Standard

The new Autopilot has been approached cautiously after its first iteration faced international scrutiny and a National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) investigation after the first self-driving car fatality last year.  But the HW2 hardware kit is much more advanced than the previous generation. According to Tesla, its cars on the road right now have the capability for Level 5 autonomy (full on, hands-off self-driving) as soon as more data is collected and the software has been fully rolled out. Musk famously set a goal for a fully autonomous cross-country trip by the end of this year.
