Tesla’s Autopilot will get ‘full self-driving features’ in August

But Tesla has shared little about how it has tested these features, Friedman said, adding that the treating of self-driving capabilities as easy software updates could have deadly results.

The Tesla founder made the disclosure in a Twitter conversation, responding to a user who complained about issues with Autopilot, which is now considered semi-autonomous with the requirement that a motorist be at the wheel at all times.

While the company has repeatedly pointed to human error in these cases, the "Autopilot" branding has left some drivers confused about the capabilities of the software, which is still now more of an "assist" feature than a a fully autonomous driver/navigator.

A Tesla spokesperson on Monday said the cars would only start offering a limited number of as-yet-undisclosed features, not full autonomy itself.

But at least one technical analysts says the electric carmaker's stock still has plenty of upside after it had recently reversed out of a significant sell-off based on its fundamentals like cash flow.

ARCTIC BLAST: Trump SLAMS Canada’s Trudeau Over G7 Comments
It makes little sense that these preexisting charges on USA exports would contribute to the president's sudden reversal. Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau takes part in a news conference in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, May 31 , 2018.

The National Transportation Safety Board said in a preliminary report last week that a Tesla (TSLA) operating on Autopilot sped up before a crash into a freeway barrier in California that killed the driver.

Currently, a Tesla in Autopilot mode can perform some self-driving functions such as parking and identification of highway lanes to improve the safety of changing lanes on the road. Tesla did not immediately respond when asked if those features would be included in the August update.

Tesla has been gradually upgrading its Autopilot features with regular software updates.

Tesla repeatedly tells drivers to keep their hands on the wheel while Autopilot is engaged-the auto warns anyone who doesn't, disabling the feature and even stopping the vehicle should the alerts be ignored.
