In a tweet, Musk revealed that Tesla's "most advanced autopilot feature ever", called Navigate on Autopilot, would be available to United States customers this weekend and would be rolling out to global markets shortly.

The new feature provides lane-change guidance that will keep the auto on its intended route, transitioning from one highway to another or moving the vehicle onto an exit ramp. The driver will, however, have to confirm lane changes by using the turn signal stalk, which helps to improve situational awareness. At present lane changing requires the driver to certify that it's safe to do so, but Tesla will remove that requirement after the feature has been tested in the wild by users. In essence, it's created to take full control of the vehicle on highways, from "on-ramp to off-ramp".

There's also a word of warning in the blog post announcing the software update: "Until truly driverless cars are validated and approved by regulators, drivers are responsible for and must remain in control of their auto at all times". Tesla says there are two kinds of lane changes that the software will suggest, one created to keep the auto as close to its navigation route as possible, and the other created to keep the vehicle as close to its target speed as possible.

The system includes four settings for speed-based lane changes, ranging from mild, average, the charmingly named "Mad Max" and off, and it'll detect when traffic causes the vehicle to travel slower than desired. The feature was introduced on October 26th.
