IDG Contributor Network: Welcome to the self-driving car revolution: Tesla releases Autopilot patch

It’s finally here.

The first publicly available, legal, and fully self-aware car is a reality. Tesla has released a software patch for existing Model S owners (and anyone who buys the car today). According to a company blog post, current owners just need to download the Tesla Version 7.0 patch. (Word is that it takes all night.)

This is the first time a production car has been able to stay in the lane by itself, adjust speed, and brake automatically on its own without driver intervention and for long periods of time. It’s particularly significant because Tesla beat out competitors like Cadillac and Ford, who have been working on similar tech, and also startups like Cruise Automation.
