Elon Musk reveals a ‘major’ Tesla Autopilot update is coming soon

Elon Musk just teased a major update for Tesla’s semi-autonomous Autopilot system, which will be released in the next few weeks.

The over-the-air software update will be available to Tesla customers following a “minor” revision to the upcoming 8.0 software is made, Musk says.

This is just a software update, though, not the hardware update that reportedly is also in the works to add more cameras and radar sensors to its vehicles. Tesla has been under pressure since a Tesla Model S driver with Autopilot activated was involved in a fatal crash last May.
