New Tesla software to offer 'full' autonomy, Elon Musk says

Rocket-powered Tesla Roadster may fly, Elon Musk says Musk tells fans 'full self driving' Teslas are near, as investigators dig into Autopilot accidents

Set to go live in August, the V9 update will build on the Tesla fleet's Autopilot feature, improving its autonomous navigation capabilities and bringing drivers one step closer to true hands-free driving.

Musk said that issue would be addressed in the most current Autopilot update and "fully fixed" in the August update. Autopilot resources, he said, had so far "rightly focused entirely on safety".

Shortly thereafter, Musk noted that the "next gen Roadster will be absolutely out of this world" and that "for those who love to drive, there is no finer vehicle in history and we don't think there will be another".

Tesla has repeatedly said Autopilot is meant to be used with an attentive driver whose hands are on the wheel, but the most visible accidents involving Autopilot have included reports of distracted drivers. Here, a motorist would have to remain behind the wheel and at the ready, though they could take their hands off the wheel for extended periods.

It is instead created to aid motorists with driving tasks like staying in lane in a bid to reduce accidents.

Those credits are a big incentive to buy a Tesla because they can save thousands of dollars off the price of a new vehicle.

The morning crash in Mountain View on Highway 101 killed the driver, 38-year-old Walter Huang.

Tesla's Autopilot is considered an SAE Level 2 system, which combines adaptive cruise control and lane keeping assist technology. Tesla has also released a second teaser image of the new SUV. What's more, Tesla claims that the auto will have a range of 620 miles.

"At three seconds prior to the crash and up to the time of impact with the crash attenuator, the Tesla's speed increased from 62 to 70.8mph, with no precrash braking or evasive steering movement detected", the report said.

But that device had been damaged in a previous crash on March 12.

Edris Rodriguez Ritchie, an attorney for the NLRB, said Tesla asked workers to sign confidentiality agreements that were "overly broad" in preventing them from publicly discussing their working conditions.

Among other factors, investigators are trying to determine how the car's camera, radar and ultrasonic sensors were working and what they were tracking.
