Tesla’s full self-driving autonomous vehicle feature is coming. An image leaked on Tuesday apparently shows the new user interface of a test-car. The image shows how the autopilot software/system views and interprets the world. The view has strong similarities to previous autonomous driving videos released by Tesla, there is now an option called “full self-driving” indicating a more advanced mode suggesting complete autonomy of the car.

The new feature builds on Tesla’s current autopilot through software updates, but this is still speculative.

It is unclear on when full autonomy will ship to the masses. Elon Musk said during a call in February that autonomy was around three to six months away, but he also said during a panel discussion at SXSW, last month that “self-driving will encompass all modes of driving by the end of the next year .”
The autonomous future of cars is seemingly very nearly here.
