AutoComplete: Watch Tesla's Autopilot drive itself in real timeAudi deals with the FDA over laser lights, and nuTonomy brings self-driving cars to Boston.
Here's what's making news on Road Show. If you're wondering what Tesla's self-driving software actually does, wonder no more. The automaker released a video showing it's autopilot system at work, and the results are pretty interesting. It's showcasing what Tesla says is full-on autonomy, which all of it's new models are technically capable of, even though the new system is not yet available to owners. Audi's laser headlights are so delicious, they had to be approved by the Food and Drug Administration. That's not a joke, considering lasers emit radiation, they apparently fall under FDA [UNKNOWN] restriction. The FDAs recently approve Audi's new high beams, which use a laser to light a phosphor that illuminate the road. It provides massive, sharp illumination. But it's limited to speed of 40 miles per hour or higher. And it only works when the car isn't detecting oncoming traffic or a well lit area ahead. Self-driving cars are headed to Boston. After successfully testing in Singapore, nuTonomy plans to test its self-driving Renault Zoe in Boston. Where it will learn more about road signs, pedestrians, and bicycles. While testing is coming to America, NuTonomy's first actual autonomous service will be a self-driving taxi fleet in Singapore in 2018.
