Ever Wondered How Tesla's Autopilot Works As Well As It Does?

Get up to speed before making claims about how autonomous cars are so terrible.

Most of the public who keep up with technological trends have some idea of what Tesla’s Autopilot does. But others are in the dark about the various technologies that the system uses to operate properly. Put simply, Autopilot is like any computer system in the sense that it takes inputs (the road and conditions), processes them, and gives an output (steering, accelerating, and changing lanes on its own). If that still sounds confusing have no fear because Wired is here to break it all down in a way you (and we) can understand.

Make sure to keep the Mario Kart Easter egg in mind when your Model 3 finally shows up.
