Driverless cars is a topic that has been developing for decades now. Once seen as mere sci-fi and fantasy, driverless technology took a huge leap with the advent of the Google self-driving car. This has been taken a step further by revolutionary tech entrepreneur Elon Musk who is the CEO of Tesla Motors.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk stated last Thursday that they will be releasing an over-the-air software update to all Tesla cars this summer, around June, allowing the users to drive in “Autopilot” mode. The mode only works on freeways and will disable itself when the car is on normal roads. Musk confirmed that the Autopilot mode will be “technically capable of driving from parking lot to parking lot”. The CEO added that the car will also be able to drive itself once you call for it and when you’re parking the vehicle in your garage.

This update will be available for all Tesla cars currently in operation as well as all cars that will be available in the future.
