- his hardware includes forward-looking radar, image-recognition cameras, and 360-degree ultrasonic sonar. All these gizmos will give the Model S the ability to read speed limit signs and cruise at whatever the road's limit happens to be, along with the ability to automatically change lanes when a driver indicates with the car's turn signal. The updated autopilot package will also include standard driver assistance tools like lane departure warnings, adaptive cruise control, and automated braking.
The first big car company launching an incremental step towards car autonomy. Uses radar to find other vehicles. Can automatically change lanes for you, and can be summoned on private lots like it's the Batmobile. Interesting!
