Tesla's Autopilot to get 'full self-driving feature' in August

The stock is also in the green in after-hours activity. But despite a series of updates to the software, it still requires an owner's hands remain on the wheel, the owner ready to take full control in an emergency, or when advised to do so by a system warning.

And two recent Tesla crashes involved Autopilot, one in which a California driver was killed when his vehicle veered into a highway barrier and another when a distracted Utah driver hit a parked fire truck at 60 miles per hour. The canister could be filled by an electric pump run off the car's battery pack when the Roadster's drive motors don't need full power, although Musk said that they "are going to go a lot further", than that with the design. The driver followed them until taking his hands off the wheel again.

"In a word, Tesla's relationship with its workers has been awful", said Field.

Four seconds before the crash the Tesla wasn't following a vehicle any more. One reason for such caution is the hardware used on products like the Models S, X and 3. Tesla's "misleading" marketing, he said, has had the unsafe effect of "providing overconfidence and building you up to thinking it's safer than it actually is". Tesla would not comment beyond the CEO's tweets.

Musk tweeted that Tesla's Version 9, a software update that will automatically install in Tesla cars, would "begin to enable full self-driving features" and entirely fix certain issues with "Autopilot", the name for the company's package of semi-driverless features such as advanced cruise control.

Over the weekend, Elon Musk teased that the new Tesla Roadster would be sporting rocket thrusters. "These rocket engines dramatically improve acceleration, top speed, braking & cornering".

A Tesla Inc employee organising a union was asked by a supervisor and company security guards to leave the factory after handing out pro-union flyers, the worker said at a National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) hearing on Monday over whether Tesla had violated federal safeguards for employee activity.

The V9 update may technically make drivers safer, but Telsa and other makers of autonomous vehicles appear to still have a way to go in building public trust in self-driving vehicles.
