Auto lane change: An Autosteer feature where the vehicle can change lanes on its own when the driver activates the turn signal on a multi-lane road. Forward Collision Warning will alert drivers of a potential impact with an upcoming obstacle, but there is no emergency braking to actually stop the vehicle, so the onus is on the driver. The Autopilot software is being deployed to eligible Teslas over-the-air, and owners will not need to do anything special for the software to be downloaded. Owners will not need to do anything special for the software to be downloaded.
The only thing that being a Tesla owner will be required for you to is to take your auto to the Tesla technicians. While there are still a number of Enhanced Autopilot features to be activated on Tesla's newer models, this update does a decent job of bringing them up to parity with what's available on the older models equipped with Autopilot hardware.
Despite what may or may not have occurred at the incident, it was clear that the NHTSA believes that the new software released by Tesla, will ensure that no such incident happens again. For now this won't kick in Automatic Emergency Braking, or AEB, so the drivers are still required to act upon this warnings.

Tesla announced October that newer Tesla vehicles were being produced with fully integrated self-driving hardware, but on the software side, Tesla has still much to tinker with. According to Musk, Tesla plans to unveil significant hardware upgrades for its cars every 12 to 18 months, as well as minor software upgrades as often as every week. But, even the cars that have all the camera and sensors in place might not work. There will be major revs every 12 to 18 months.
That is naturally disappointing for clients, particularly the individuals who are more acclimated to the upgrade timetable of more customary automakers. Most cars remain relatively static in their basic design with no major revisions for as long as five years. But as Musk notes, it's a trade-off Tesla is willing to make in order to push the envelope in innovation.
Tesla validated the first version of Autopilot silently for months, running the software in "shadow mode," testing in the background and allowing the company to check its work without actually taking control of a vehicle.
