Traffic authority's report on Tesla crash could hit autonomous development hard

Tesla Model 3

In the final second before the crash, the vehicle, which was under control of the autopilot, accelerated from 62 to 70.8 miles per hour, while no evidence of pre-crash braking or evasive steering movement was detected.

While this doesn't guarantee the carmaker's version 9 software will make your Tesla a self-driving vehicle, it at the very least, suggests that the new software would include the first steps to fully-autonomous driving.

Enabling "full self-driving" would make good on a promise by electric-vehicle company Tesla two years ago when it began equipping all new cars with the necessary hardware for full self-driving. Despite its name, Tesla's existing Autopilot technology is not true self-driving capability, but a set of advanced safety features that have also helped Tesla gather data for training its self-driving software. "Maybe they will even allow a Tesla to fly..."

As impressive as those specs are, Elon Musk over the weekend hinted that the next-gen Roadster may have a few more tricks up its sleeve.

Martial wants to quit Man United according to his agent
Phlippe Lamboley, the agent of Anthony Martial , has confirmed that the forward wishes to leave Manchester United this summer.

Revealing that the "Automated Mode" in the next-generation Roadster will come in addition to the Autopilot system, Musk said that the feature is expected to "massively enhance human driving ability".

Autopilot in its current form is a driver-assistance system that still requires the driver to pay attention and be ready to take control of the steering wheel.

It also promises cars will automatically park themselves, having dropped the driver at their destination, and return to pick them up when summoned from a smartphone app. "It is not possible to know exactly when each element of the functionality described above will be available, as this is highly dependent on local regulatory approval".

While Tesla is selling a full self-driving package, that does not mean that consumers will be able to use it immediately.
