Tesla opting for changes in Autopilot mode. Tesla might limit Autopilot for those drivers who abuse it.

The Autopilot mode of Tesla has caused a few problems since it has been introduced. A fatal incident in America and a pretty serious one without any injuries in China has actually made the company to over think about its software.

The company would be updating the software soon and will be progressing towards the 8.0 version of autopilot software.

It is said that the latest version of software will actually limit the programming of autopilot mode in the cars. Thus the drivers who were previously abusing the software won’t be able to do it anymore and it will also result in lesser problems.

The company is looking forward to solution that will ensure that the auto steering mode in autopilot gets disables. Thus it will make sure that the steering will be in control of drivers all the time and they won’t be able to ignore the commands to retake the wheel in their hands.

The drivers or owners of the car will not be able to drive the car in autopilot mode after taking their hands off the steering. The car will no longer move in autopilot mode if the driver won’t have his or her hands on steering wheel.

The function of autopilot will not actually turn off but will be disengaged till the car is parked and restarted by the owner, according to Mashable. Only time will tell if this kind of software update will be good for the cars or not.

As the people who have the habit of ignoring the warnings might do so despite the changes.
The Autopilot 8.0 by Tesla is under monitoring for the final verdict. Once it is given the green signal, we will see it in the new cars and older ones too.
