Tesla Autopilot 2.0 Increases Speed Limit to 90 MPH – Robotics Trends

Tesla is rolling out updates to Autopilot 2.0 driving-assist software that is featured on its Model S and Model X vehicles that come equipped with self-driving hardware.

The 8.1.17.17.4 update enhances Tesla Vision, the company’s proprietary technology that replaced Mobileye, to about the same ability level as first-gen Autopilot vehicles. The update removes Autosteer’s speed restrictions by bumping the speed limit up to 90 MPH on highways, which is the current limit for first-generation Autopilot vehicles.

Also, Autopilot’s speed limit off highways will no longer be restricted to 35 MPH. It will now be functional at any speed up to 5 MPH above the detected speed limit.

Tesla pushed more widely Automatic Emergency Braking, added Auto High Beam, and made enhancements to Side Collision Warnings.
