The Tesla Autopilot software is a newly released program that provides completely semi-autonomous capabilities to Tesla vehicles. This allows Tesla users to drive their vehicles without even touching the pedals or steering wheels on the highway.

This high-tech vehicle makes use of cameras and radar to keep tabs on other vehicles, potential hazards and road markings. It is capable of executing lane changes with only a bit of supervision from drivers, while dodging dangerously swerving vehicles. The car is also well capable of parking itself automatically and preventing drivers from making dangerous moves.

The Tesla Autopilot software has been used in a record-breaking 4,846-km drive from Los Angeles to New York in a Tesla Model S P85D.
