Tesla's L2-class autopilot system Autopilot ushers in major updates

Date: Oct 31, 2018From: http://www.chipsbom.com

Today, Tesla 's L2-class autopilot system Auto pi lot ushered in a major update, officially pushing "Naviga te on Autopilot" to North American users , adding semi-automatic up and down in the original single-lane automatic driving and semi-automatic lane changing functions. The ramp function can be described as the prototype of the L4 point-to-point autopilot!

The required model is LT1996ACDD/AIDD STV9424 DAC8512 LT5518EUF#TR ISL6560CB-T LTC1998CS6#TR

The strongest Tesla autonomous driving function to date has finally come on stage.


The name is called: Navigate on Autopilot.


This upgrade is an important node for Tesla to achieve L3-class autonomous driving, and is also a new development to fulfill its full autonomous driving commitment. With the help of Navigate on Autopilot, the autopilot experience is further upgraded.

The new feature will enable all Tesla sensors , including eight cameras, radar and ultrasonic sensors.

With this function, Tesla can automatically navigate and automatically drive to a designated location, during which time it can automatically complete normal driving, change lanes, and pass through intersections to further liberate the driver.

After Tesla CEO Musk announced the news, someone asked on Twitter: Really?

Musk said: Of course.

How to use Navigate on Autopilot

Tesla released an official blog detailing Navigate on Autopilot. This feature is described as the "most advanced" adjective, but is still in the testing phase, for example, when the driver changes lanes, the driver needs to confirm the consent. This step can be omitted in future versions.

How to use Navigate on Autopilot?

The first step is to enter your destination.

Voice or manual input can be.


In the second step, click on “Navigate on Autopilot” to see the route information that can be driven automatically.


The third step is to pull the two levers to start.

Once activated, a 360° visual display on the display will show a blue line representing the route traveled by the navigation.


After the Navigate on Autopilot is activated, Trafficiic-aware cruise control and Autosteer are also automatically enabled.

Take a look at an official Model 3 autopilot demo. (Note that the driver's hand is always on the steering wheel, even if driving automatically, it is dangerous to leave with both hands.)


When the lane needs to be changed, a prompt will be issued, and the human driver needs to turn the turn signal and issue an instruction to confirm the lane change. As mentioned above, this step is expected to be omitted in the future.

Musk expects that after the Navigate on Autopilot function is about 10 million miles (approximately 16.09 million kilometers), once the “safety clearance” is passed, the steps for the user to confirm will be removed.

Tesla currently offers four lane change settings: Disabled, Moderate, Average, Mad Max, Crazy Mode will be more aggressive, and the pursuit of maximum speed.


At the end of Navigate on Autopilot, the vehicle will prompt you. This latest autopilot feature is usually enabled after high speed and deactivated after high speed.

The same is true on Model S+X.

After the release of Navigate on Autopilot, many Tesla owners have taken the lead in trying new features.

A few hours ago, LivingTesla uploaded a short test on YouTube showing the Navigate on Autopilot lane change and the performance of the next high speed.


After watching it, netizens said: This is the future we want, we can't wait to want this and so on.

Tesla's line of change is dangerous for vehicles approaching at high speeds. This is related to the problem of vision mentioned in 3. Tesla's change of line decision can only be determined based on the surrounding conditions of its perception, and it is impossible to grasp the information of vehicles that are approaching at a high speed. This is extremely dangerous on a road like Europe. For example, in Germany, the vehicle in the rearview mirror is far away from the vehicle, and the blink of an eye has come to the back, and it will not hit the line in time, let alone the change line.

The above is the latest development of Navigate on Autopilot. Currently, this feature is only released in North America. It is still unknown when domestic users can experience it.
