Tesla plans to launch electric compact vehicle within five years: Musk

Rocket-powered Tesla Roadster may fly, Elon Musk says

Shortly thereafter, Musk noted that the "next gen Roadster will be absolutely out of this world" and that "for those who love to drive, there is no finer vehicle in history and we don't think there will be another".

Elon Musk has taken to Twitter promising some 'full self-driving features' will be rolled out as part of an August update for Tesla's Autopilot driver assist system.

"Latest update should have a positive effect on latter issue especially".

Musk has previously said the software will "never be perfect" and is not created to replace human control of a vehicle.

The Tesla Model X had been operating using the firm's Autopilot software when it collided with a freeway barrier in Silicon Valley, California.

A Tesla Inc employee organising a union was asked by a supervisor and company security guards to leave the factory after handing out pro-union flyers, the worker said at a National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) hearing on Monday over whether Tesla had violated federal safeguards for employee activity.

"All aspects of the crash remain under investigation as the NTSB determines the probable cause, with the intent of issuing safety recommendations to prevent similar crashes".

Autopilot costs an extra $5,000 as a feature on Tesla electric vehicles. Hence he was not in control of it, nor was he paying attention to the road at the time.

The cruise control maintains a set distance between the cars and traffic in front of them.

Tesla's vehicles have been involved in several crashes this year and at least two people have died in those crashes.

According to a report in The Wall Street Journal, Tesla had considered installing additional sensors that would track the driver's eyes to ensure they were looking forward and a different steering sensor that would detect the driver's hands on the wheel. At 3 seconds prior to the crash and up to the time of impact with the crash attenuator, the Tesla's speed increased from 62 to 70.8 miles per hour, with no pre-crash braking or evasive steering movement detected.

But that device had been damaged in a previous crash on March 12. They have cameras, radar and sonar sensors.

But, what Tesla is expected to deliver would, more likely, move it into the realm of what is referred to as Level 3 technology.
