Back in July, Tesla sent out a letter updating investors and buyers with news that vehicles on the line were getting closer and closer to being able to recognize and stop at stop lights or stop signs. The company even described the unofficial feature as part of a “shadow mode” that drivers wouldn’t see in operation. It’s called the Autosteer Stop Sign Warning
We are making progress towards stopping at stop signs and traffic lights. This feature is currently operating in ‘shadow mode’ in the fleet, which compares our software algorithm to real-world driver behavior across tens of millions of instances around the world.
Like other car companies, Tesla is trying to toe the line between creating a car that is reliably autonomous and a population that isn’t yet on board with the idea of giving up the wheel to a computer.
