After yesterday's press conference, where Elon Musk unveiled that all Tesla cars ordered from this point will have a fully self-driving hardware, Tesla's CEO promised to share soon a video showing Tesla's capabilities with the new system.

The video, according to Musk, is the reason why the announcement was delayed from Sunday to Wednesday. But, as promised, Musk shared the video shortly after the announcement in which you can see a Tesla navigating a complex urban environment.

The video shows a Tesla car on a home-to-work route without any assistance from a driver, who is still required to sit in the driver's seat by law. You can see the car driving smoothly on the roads, stopping at red lights and letting people cross the road. In the end, the driver exits the car, which then goes to find an empty parking place and eventually park itself.

Elon Musk explained on Twitter that when searching for parking, the car reads the signs to see if it is allowed to park there, which is why it skipped the disabled spot. He also added that when you want your car to return, you can summon it by using your phone. This feature will eventually work even if you are on the other side of the country.
