>releasing a beta version that drives a 2 ton vehicle

has Tesla lost its mind?

PALO ALTO, Calif. – Many owners of Tesla’s rakish Model S sedan will wake up Thursday morning with a wildly new car in their garage.

The star of Tesla’s Version 7 software upgrade, which gets pushed out to U.S. owners overnight, is Autopilot, the company’s suite of semi-autonomous tech that teams software tweaks with cameras, radar, ultrasonic sensors. The result is a Model S that is capable of taking over some of the driving duties from its human masters.

“We tried to make (Autopilot) work like it’s a really good chauffeur, not too conservative, not too aggressive,” Tesla founder Elon Musk said during a press conference at the company’s headquarters here. “Long term, it’ll be way better than a person. It never gets tired, never has something to drink, never argues with someone in the car.”

Musk noted that drivers should exercise caution in the initial months of the rollout. “We’re advising drivers to keep their hands on the wheel at this early stage,” he said, pointing out that the car’s dash alerts drivers when they need to take the wheel. “We describe (the software) as still being in beta.”

>Implying any company would release car-driving software as "General Availability"

Remember how Gmail was in beta for like five fucking years? Autopilot software will likely carry the "Beta" tag for a decade before someone has the balls to say, "Yup, this is good enough for 99.99% of all people, slap the GA tag on it"

Given all the hubbub about driverless cars, is it even legal?

You fags fucking retarded. Why not try to understand the technology before shit posting this shitty thread?
They released a glorified assisted cruise control. It's not fully autonomous ffs.

Isn't this software regulated and not mechanical? It's not really your father's cruise control.

oh wow its kinda like a clingy gf

Even in Autopilot, you keep your hands on the steering wheel. Well… you don’t have to keep your hands on the steering wheel. You can rest them on your knees (resting on knees, palms up, fingertips touching the wheel is advised), or keep one pinky on the wheel. And okay, you can take your hands off altogether for a moment. But after a few seconds, your car will give you a little message, asking you to touch the wheel in some capacity.

When the update goes out, anyone who’s bought a Tesla made in the past year (Tesla starting equipping cars with the necessary sensors in September 2014) will just wake up to an essentially brand new, more capable system. The cars get better as they age. (Sorry early adopters, there’s no way to retrofit the necessary hardware onto older cars to make them drive themselves.)

Reyes says this forward-thinking attitude means there are also hardware differences that set Tesla apart: Tesla started including the necessary hardware more than a year ago, and that its more central operating system makes such upgrades easier.
