Now, the car that can change lanes by itself
Tesla Motors is leapfrogging its competitors with an autopilot system that lets its cars change lanes by themselves.
Tesla unveiled the system in a blog post this week.
It will be added to some Model S sedans and Model X SUVs through a software update.
Like other semi-autonomous systems from Mercedes, Audi and Volvo, Tesla’s system automatically keeps the car within its lane and maintains a certain distance from the car in front.
It can find a parking spot and parallel park itself.
It also uses cameras and sensors to warn drivers about potential side impacts.
But analysts say with this update, Tesla goes further than its competitors with industry-first autonomous lane-changing.
