Complaints have surfaced against the Tesla Autopilot 2.0 feature wherein the speed limit would refrain users from driving at their desired speed. In fact, the second generation Autopilot hardware suite was incorporated into the Tesla Model S vehicle which experienced accidents since it released. Will the update make up for the negative reviews and unfortunate events?

At present, the TACC speed limit on the Tesla Model S vehicle was set at 80 mph. However, according to Electrek, the automaker has increased the Tesla Autopilot 2.0 speed limit to 85 mph and its Autosteer highway speed limit from 50 to 55 mph. The change will transform the vehicle to become a more useful Tesla vehicle which would improve its overall performance and its Tesla Vision image processing system more functional.

The update was developed in-house to coincide with the first system through the Mobileye technology. Although the company's CEO, Elon Musk, already announced last month that he expected the update to be incorporated sooner than expected, hundreds of millions of miles of data may upset the deadline. In fact, gradually lifting speed restrictions with the new update would increase data capacity of the technology.

Moreover, the Tesla Autopilot 2.0 feature currently uses 1 out of 8 cameras of the new hardware suite. However, the update would make use of more camera installed into the vehicle to improve its basic features such as the TACC and AutoSteer. According to Tecmundo, the update would provide cleaner and simpler routes for the Tesla Model S feature. Furthermore, the update paved the way for the vehicle to function without many problems and enabled the vehicle to follow a straight line without losing control.

Now that the Tesla Autopilot 2.0 speed limit is improved, the vehicle eradicated some of the complained features incorporated into the Tesla Model S version. Will the update generate more positive reviews for the technological feature?
