Tesla starts rolling out new Navigate on Autopilot and Enhanced Summon features

Months after releasing a beta version of its Navigate on Autopilot feature, which is an important step toward automated highway driving, Tesla is now starting to roll out a new version of the feature that enables automatic lane-change without confirmation.

The update also includes the new Enhanced Summon feature. 

Navigate on Autopilot was supposed to be in the first release of Tesla’s v9 software update, but they decided to pull it for further validation.

The feature was supposed to enable on-ramp to off-ramp driving on the highway with the system doing all its own lane changes based on speed and the destination entered in the navigation system.

As we reported last year, Tesla started releasing the feature in its 2018.42 software update, but it doesn’t automatically perform the lane changes. Navigate on Autopilot suggests the lane changes and the drivers need to initiate them with the blinker stall.

Now CEO Elon Musk says that Tesla started rolling the feature without the need to confirm the lane changes in an update last week:
