Tesla release "Full Self-Driving' software to customers
Last Friday saw a cautious step forward in the automation of self-driving vehicles with Tesla releasing Beta Verison 9.0 to some customers and all Tesla staff. While the name of the update may suggest the update makes every car fully autonomous, it's anything but the case.
Tesla released the update to customers with the following release notes "It may do the wrong thing at the worst time, so you must always keep your hands on the wheel and pay extra attention to the road," according to a Tesla owner that posted on Reddit.
Customers have already filmed their first self-drive videos and as you can see in the one below, not everything is perfect... but it feels like a step-forward to a future with viewer road deaths and a more efficent transportation system.
Will you ever purchase an autonomous self-driving vehicle? Will you ever have trust in a self-drivng vehicle?
