According to a report by Electrek, Model S and Model X owners are receiving updates to their vehicles that modify the Autopilot feature. These changes are to comply with regulations set by the European Union in 2017 relating to vehicle steering equipment.
Some of the changes include:
- Summon feature now requires the user to be no further than 6 meters away.
- Auto Lane Change is required to take less than 5 seconds. If it does, it will abort the change and stay in the initial lane.
- If the driver's hands are removed from the wheel for more than 15 seconds, it will remind the driver to place their hands on the steering wheel.
