The American billionaire Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla, announced that the company will offer the test version of its “fully self-driving” car to a limited number of keen customers and experts in driving, on Tuesday, the 20th of October.
The British newspaper “Daily Mail” said that cars contain features related to highway driving, automatic traffic lights and stop signs that slow the car down before stopping automatically.
The cars contain an advanced version of the Autopilot program, and drivers participating in the experiment will have to put their hands on the steering wheels to control the technology used, so the cars will be semi-autonomous.
According to the newspaper, “Tesla” plans this year to issue one million “roboticaxi” cars, in spite of that, the fate of all automated vehicles awaits official approval.
Although the company’s recent announcement confirms that it is fully self-driving cars, the specific features now available to customers make these cars semi-autonomous, not completely self-driving.
It is worth noting that the US Congress announced last month that it was waiting for the year 2021 to pass laws to speed up the process of manufacturing self-driving cars.
Debbie Dingle, a Michigan lawmaker, said promulgating self-driving car laws will have a priority as of next year.
And she added: “Now, the car industry must adhere to the application of 75 standards of autonomous driving, many of which include that the driver drives the car using the driving tools available to him.”
