In three days Tesla electric cars will have autopilot for highway steering and parallel parking

Tesla Motors software upgrade, version 7, will be released this Thursday. It will include autopilot features.

The autopilot will help steer the car on the highway and parallel park the car.

Tesla demonstrated many autopilot features, but the upgrade won’t include all of those, said Musk. One feature that will not be available allowed the the car to completely park itself. Last year, when Tesla launched the Model S P85D, it showed off a combination of current and future autopilot features. The Tesla Model S P85D is a high-performance, dual-motor version of the Model S.

The Tesla Model X and Model S have 12 sensors at the bottom, a front-facing camera and a rear-view mirror and a radar system. The keys to the driverless experience are the sensors, helping the vehicle to scan speed limit signs, and notify the driver when the vehicle exceeds the speed limit.

Tesla will likely debut features that are more self-driving than assisting some time in the future. ‘Valet park mode’ is one such feature that can summon the car to arrive without a driver. The autopilot features are available on all of Tesla cars, but to enable the features, customers are required to spend an additional $2,500.
