Tesla vehicles will be able to recognize speed signs and automatically adjust their speed through its new 2020.36 software update. It is a further step in the brand’s path towards 100% automatic piloting by the end of 2020.

In its latest update, Tesla offers owners an improvement in speed assistance. From now on, the system will be able to detect speed limit signs thanks to the different cameras present on the car.

These signs will then be automatically displayed in the driving display field and will be used to automatically regulate the vehicle’s speed. It will also become possible to adjust the cruise control or autopilot setting directly to the current speed with a simple press on the speed limit sign.

Another new feature is a chime. This is actually an audible alert that will sound when a light turns green and it is time to restart. If the Tesla is positioned behind another car, the chime will only sound once the car starts moving.

All these new features are only applicable for drivers with a Tesla with the autopilot option. As always with the American manufacturer, this update will be deployed gradually and some owners will still have to wait a few days or weeks before being able to take advantage of it. CC
