After Elon Musk Tesla warned car owners from the overuse of new functionality autopilot, Tesla released a fresh firmware update some of the limitations of this functionality, designed to reduce the potential risk of the use of the autopilot.
Quote from the official release of update:
& quot; avtoruleniya functionality is now limited to roads in residential areas and roads without central marking. When Avtorulenie activated on the limit for that road, Model S will reduce the rate to the maximum allowed in this area ± 5 mph. Vezzhaya on a limited area of the Model S will reduce its speed, if necessary, and will do so even if you try to increase the speed limit Cruise Control i>. & Quot; blockquote>
It seems that new restrictions are pretty reasonable, but most owners of Tesla Model S - these are people who like to feel the freedom to use the new features of the system. So a fresh update on the Owners those who like to care about the safety of Tesla and those disappointed that deprives them of Tesla machines additional functionality.
