Watch a Fully Autonomous Tesla Drive Itself Around Town with Zero Human Intervention

Last night Tesla said that all of its vehicles produced moving forward will include the hardware necessary for fully autonomous driving with safety levels greater than human drivers.

“Self-driving vehicles will play a crucial role in improving transportation safety and accelerating the world’s transition to a sustainable future,” Tesla said. “Full autonomy will enable a Tesla to be substantially safer than a human driver, lower the financial cost of transportation for those who own a car and provide low-cost on-demand mobility for those who do not.”

The company has released a video demonstrating a fully autonomous Tesla in action.

Eight surround cameras provide 360 degree visibility around the car. Twelve updated ultrasonic sensors complement this vision. A forward-facing radar provides additional data about the world on a redundant wavelength, capable of seeing through heavy rain, fog, and dust.

“As always, our over-the-air software updates will keep customers at the forefront of technology and continue to make every Tesla, including those equipped with first-generation Autopilot and earlier cars, more capable over time,” Tesla noted.
