Sources have revealed that Tesla's upcoming ‘Autopilot 2.0’ is all set to receive major updates. These include the use of new hardware components to pave the way for a safer drive.
Tesla’s autonomous driving assistant is expected to now get a new front-facing triple camera, and will also benefit from additional radars around the car to support the forward biased radar that’s currently being used in their models. Rumours state that the new hardware is already being installed on the new cars, and will start out by running the current Autopilot 1.0 software.
Eventually, the new features will find their way onto the software post improvements gauged from the information retrieved from the new hardware running Autopilot 1.0. While everybody knows that Autopilot uses data accumulated from the high precision maps derived from data collected from the entire fleet of vehicles, the new hardware will boost the quality of information being transmitted.
There’s no communication about when exactly the Autopilot 2.0 will make it officially to the market, however, Elon Musk has added that very big improvements to its self-driving technology are on the way. Sounds like a lot of excitement coming Tesla’s way in the coming months.
