Tesla updates its Autopilot to offer more seamless navigation

News

Tesla is beginning to roll out the latest version of Navigate on Autopilot for a more seamless active guidance experience.

Info

In this new version, drivers will now have the option to use Navigate on Autopilot without having to confirm lane changes via the turn stalk.

In the Autopilot settings menu, a driver can press the Customise Navigate on Autopilot button which will now display three additional settings - Enable at Start of Every Trip, Require Lane Change Confirmation, and Lane Change Notification.

Through the Enable at Start of Every Trip setting, Navigate on Autopilot can be set to automatically turn on each time a driver enters a navigation route. Once enabled, anytime a driver is on a highway and uses Autopilot with a location plugged into the navigation bar, the feature will be on by default.

If a driver selects ‘No' to Require Lane Change Confirmation, lane changes will happen automatically, without requiring a driver to confirm them first. Drivers can elect to get notified about an upcoming lane change by receiving an audible chime as well as a default visual prompt. Additionally, all cars made after August 2017 will also have the option to have their steering wheel vibrate for the alert as well.

Each of these notifications are meant to provide drivers with the opportunity to check their surroundings and determine whether they want to cancel the lane change before it's made. Cancellations can be made by moving the car's turn signal or by pressing the lane change cancellation pop-up notification on the car's touchscreen. This feature does not make a car autonomous, and lane changes will only be made when a driver's hands are detected on the wheel. As has always been the case, until truly driverless cars are validated and approved by regulators, drivers are responsible for and must remain in control of their car at all times.

Through Tesla's internal testing and Early Access Programme, more than half a million miles have already been driven with the lane change confirmation turned off. The automaker consistently reviews data from instances when drivers took over while the feature has been in use, and has found that when used properly both versions of Navigate on Autopilot offer comparable levels of safety. The company has also heard overwhelmingly from drivers in the Early Access Programme that they like using the feature for road trips and during their daily commutes.

These new settings will be available to customers who have purchased Enhanced Autopilot or Full Self-Driving Capability. They will begin to roll out via an over-the-air software update to customers in the US, and will be introduced in other markets in the future pending validation and regulatory approval.
