Tesla Self-Driving Cars Might be Ready Sooner than People Think


November 27, 2020

LAS VEGAS, NV - Tesla’s self-driving capabilities were tested in Las Vegas and it was reported that self-driving features may be achieved sooner than many people suspect.

Tesla's autopilot has been criticized by many safety advocates, and the company's self-driving features appear to be far behind some of its competitors.  For example, GM's Super Cruise appears to be outpacing Tesla, and other self-driving companies such as Waymo appear to be ahead of Tesla as well.  Recently, a series of tests using the Model S in downtown Las Vegas indicated that the vehicle's features are more effective than previously thought when it comes to intercity driving.  Tesla's full self-driving beta system was able to change lanes, adjust the speed, and otherwise navigate the city streets in order to make it safely to its destination.  Of course, the system is still in its testing phase. It has not been widely released to the public. 

Tesla is still working to refine its vehicles' self-driving capabilities. Based on these recent tests, it appears that the autonomous driving features may be available sooner than anticipated. Consumer Reports has in the past found Tesla's autopilot features lacking as compared to competitors such as GMC Super Cruise. 

Many people are apprehensive about self driving vehicle technology. Safety concerns may also be unwarranted, especially considering how inadequate human drivers are at avoiding collisions. After all, 94 percent of severe collisions are the result of human mistakes. With 36,560 fatalities in 2018 alone, human drivers leave plenty of room for improvement.
