This week it was announced the start ofthe long-awaited test of a full-fledged autopilot system in Tesla's electric vehicles. The head of the company, Elon Musk, said this on his Twitter page, noting that it would be a long and laborious process. The very next day after Musk's announcement, the first videos of the closed beta testing of a full-fledged FSD (Full Self-Driving) autopilot appeared on the network.

The first mention of full-fledged autopilot,allowing you to refuse driver services, Musk did back in 2015. Then he promised to implement the system in the next two years. However, the task turned out to be not an easy one, and only at the end of 2020 can you see how Tesla independently drives along the night highway at a still low speed of 56 km / h (35 mph). It is known that wider testing will begin within the next month, and the full launch of the system for the United States is scheduled for mid-December.
