  • Rocket-powered Tesla Roadster may fly, Elon Musk says

Troubled electric-car maker Tesla may be set to deliver new, fully autonomous vehicle features later this summer.

But now with the upcoming software update Musk claimed that the update would bring "full self-driving features" to the Tesla's auto would be able to drive itself.

Tesla's Autopilot and several similar systems use torque sensors to ensure the driver has a hand (or hands) on the steering wheel.

But proponents were quick to celebrate Musk's promised upgrade, with Tesla stock surging in after-hours trading. The update, dubbed Version 9.0, will also contain a bunch of improvements to the existing Autopilot technology, revealed CEO Elon Musk.

The latest software update, which started to roll out last week, features a new feature that will increase the number of warnings it gives drivers to take control of the vehicle.

An add-on weight dubbed Autopilot Buddy can allow drivers to keep their hands off a Tesla Model S or Model X steering wheel for extended periods of time, and can help to disable warnings that prompt the driver to take back control of the vehicle. The canister could be filled by an electric pump run off the car's battery pack when the Roadster's drive motors don't need full power, although Musk said that they "are going to go a lot further", than that with the design.

In blog posts released by Tesla following the accident in March, the manufacturer said the condition of the attenuator was "the reason the crash was so severe".

Musk said that issue would be addressed in the most current Autopilot update and "fully fixed" in the August update.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk has provided more details about the SpaceX upgrade package the company will offer for its upcoming Roadster sports auto.

But this time it was Elon Musk's own Roadster, which was launched into space atop a Falcon Heavy rocket.

The thirty-six trophies clearly mirrors Fallout Shelter's Xbox One achievements, so it doesn't appear to be for a new game. Since the game is coming out in November, we could easily expect this beta in the next month or so.

Tesla's shares were last up 3.3 per cent at $327.93 on Monday after touching a high of $333.

While Musk's announcement appears absurd to some, Tesla executives are not confirming nor denying his claim.

As per the vehicle's programming, the Tesla provided two visual alerts and one auditory alert for the driver to place his hands on the steering wheel prior to the crash.

"These rocket engines dramatically improve acceleration, top speed, braking & cornering. Maybe they will even allow a Tesla to fly".
