New, smarter Tesla Autopilot arrives with 45mph speed limit - for now

Tesla's autopilot vindicated with 40% drop in crashes
However, Tesla's rapid advancements could leave some owners with buyer's remorse, as their cool new cars rapidly become outdated-and it doesn't seem like that trend is likely to change anytime soon.
TESLA has flagged another big overhaul of the software used to control its cars is coming, but this time it has included physical tweaks to the car's hardware as part of the update.
Automakers typically let vehicles run for 3-5 years before implementing any major revisions, but that won't be the case for Tesla vehicles. Autosteer will only work at speed up to 45 miles per hour, and adaptive cruise control is limited to a max of 75 mph.
After a Tesla driver was killed in a crash with Autopilot active previous year, Tesla unsurprisingly chose to handle the rollout of AP2 with an abundance of caution.
The recent upgrade which is being called revolutionary both by the company and CEO Musk is now available on all the HW2- era cars, according to Engadget.
Forward Collision Warning, or FCW, will also head to the vehicles.
In October, Tesla revealed "HW2", an over-air hardware update that eventually would include an upgrade to the semi-autonomous Autopilot program.
Extensive testing is a good thing, but the downside is a slow rollout of Autopilot safety and convenience features.
The latest rollout is essentially the same release that was sent to 1,000 Tesla owners earlier this month and covers all cars build since October 2016, when the company switched over it's factory from installing first generation Autopilot hardware to the latest generation.
Federal regulators "did not identify any defects" in Tesla's autopilot feature after a lengthy investigation of the technology, officials announced Thursday.
Tesla investigation - what it means?
Following the crash, the company updated its Autopilot software in September so that it disables the automatic steering function if drivers don't keep both hands on the wheel, and now relies more on radar sensors and less on cameras.
As Tesla polishes its software, it will loosen the reins on what drivers can do.
Let us know what you think of Tesla's update in the comments.
The findings were significant not just for Tesla, but for all manufacturers who have in the past, and are now investing millions into the area of autonomous driving technology.
