Tesla has began pushing a brand new software update enabling Autopilot to remain within the passing lane as a substitute of moving back to the fitting lane such as you normally should.
Self-driving vehicles have the potential to greatly alleviate traffic by simply driving in higher and more appropriate ways than the typical human driver.
Two things that make a giant difference are simply keeping a more reasonable following distance with the automobile in front and staying out of the passing lane if you end up not passing.
These two things are quite easy and in the event that they were respected by everyone, they might greatly improve the flow of traffic, but unfortunately, too many drivers ignore those rules.
Tesla’s Autopilot has already been taking those rules under consideration. The driving force-assist system could be set at an inexpensive following distance and since December 2018, Tesla’s Navigate on Autopilot feature has been suggesting people to maneuver back into the fitting lane after passing.
Surprisingly to some, Tesla has now began pushing a brand new software update to present the motive force the choice to remain within the passing lane.
Tesla introduced a brand new ‘Exit Passing Lane’ feature in its 2020.36.10 software update:
“While Navigate on Autopilot is activated, your automobile can now remain within the passing lane. To regulate your passing lane preference, tap Controls > Autopilot > CUSTOMIZE NAVIGATE ON AUTOPILOT > EXIT PASSING LANE.”
The feature now makes exiting the passing lane optional — meaning that owners must activate it within the settings to ensure that the vehicle to routinely return to the fitting lane.
Prior to the update, Tesla owners already had the choice to cancel an automatic lane change in the event that they didn’t agree with it.
This might seem to be a move backward for Tesla Autopilot, but it surely is definitely something that ought to remove frustration while Tesla improves on the lane changing logic.
In my experience, it’s some of the frustrating a part of using Navigate on Autopilot.
I find that it can sometimes take an excessive amount of time to return to the fitting lane after safely passing a automobile — slowing down traffic within the passing lane or return to the fitting lane too quick if there’s still one other automobile that needs passing in a second and nobody else is coming within the passing lane.
Now that I can deactivate it, I don’t know if I’d, but I like having the choice.
