Dr Know it all, John Gibb, explains the increased steering wheel nag on older versions of Tesla Autopilot software. Tesla provided an over the air software update to comply ensure drivers are always paying attention when Autopilot or FSD is engaged. There is also more software restrictions around when Autopilot is allowed to be engaged.
This update potentially went to 2 million cars but older cars may already have been upgraded to newer versions of Autopilot and FSD.
In terms of what NHTSA could have required, this is actually one of the lower impact scenarios to close out the investigation of 11 incidents over billions of miles of Autopilot usage.
