The traffic lights manual now represents a recent Tesla Autopilot update (one most Tesla owners have not yet received it). Well established Twitter user “green”/@greentheonly posted a picture and a short note about the update on Twitter. This means that if there is a car in front of you that doesn’t slow, the vehicle can start driving while the light is green.
Some other key points from the image are that:
- Tesla’s Traffic Light and Stop Sign Control are designed to recognize and respond to both traffic lights and stop signs, which we already knew.
- It will slow the Model 3 or Model Y down to a stop if either the Traffic-Aware Cruise Control or Autosteer are in use.
- The feature uses the car’s forward-facing cameras along with GPS data.
- It will also slow for blinking yellow lights, off lights, and other relevant road markings.
Tesla also makes it very clear that this is a beta feature and works best on roads that are frequently driven by Tesla vehicles.
