Tesla autopilot learned to “see” speed limit signs

Tesla has begun rolling out software update 2020.36, which adds useful features such as the long-awaited improvement to the autopilot system.

The autopilot can now visually identify road signs that limit speed, thanks to the integrated cameras. As a result, cars will more accurately comply with speed limits. Previously, the autopilot system was guided only by GPS information and the car owner risked running into a fine, for example, if the car accelerated ahead of time.

In addition, convenient innovations have become available that help to pass intersections. So, a beep will sound when the traffic light turns green. At the same time, if there is another car in front, the signal will sound only when it starts moving.

As with most software updates for the American Tesla brand, it may take some time before all users can download the update.

In addition, it was recently noted that Elon Musk promises to increase the battery capacity of Tesla electric cars by 50%. It should be emphasized that the new batteries should provide American electric vehicles with a longer range on a single charge.
