«Tesla will host investors on the morning of April 19th at our headquarters in Palo Alto to provide a deep dive into our self-driving technology and road map.» Tesla, if you are listening, we are investors and would love to attend! You can send us our invite to [email protected]
After a few weeks of rumors Elon was crystal about it on Twitter. He also clarified that retrofits will start when the software is able to take meaningful advantage of the Tesla FSD computer, which is an order of magnitude more capable than the current one.
NoAP without confirmation is here! Interesting bits from Tesla’s announcement:
Since first introduced Navigate on Autopilot, drivers have traveled more than 66 million miles using the feature, and more than 9 million suggested lane changes have been successfully executed
In the Autopilot settings menu, Customize Navigate on Autopilot will now display three additional settings – Enable at Start of Every Trip, Require Lane Change Confirmation, and Lane Change Notification
Drivers can elect to get notified about an upcoming lane change by receiving an audible chime as well as a default visual prompt
Through our internal testing and Early Access Program, more than half a million miles have already been driven with the lane change confirmation turned off
Tesla just started rolling out this feature to customers in the U.S., and will be introduced in other markets in the future
Elon confirmed that the NN is upgraded in this release too, it isn’t just a settings change
What we’ve heard from a person with access to the Early Access Program that «It is the single most revolutionary feature that has been added since I bought the car»«. C’mon Tesla, hit us!
The Model 3 comes with a battery that turns on when the temperature of the battery pack goes below a certain threshold (about +5°C/41F in u/Wugz observations), but only when your car is charging or preheating. Prior to 2019.8.3, the measured amount of power used by the heater was ~2.5 kW, but on 2019.8.3 u/Wugz observed an increment up to 6 kW. According to his calculations, that decreases the amount of time to wait before charging by as much as 60%. Thanks for sharing this u/Wugz!
