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 126.96.36.199.4 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.
Following this update, Tesla Autopilot 2.0 vehicles have nearly the same features as first-generation Autopilot vehicles built on Mobileye’s technology.
