Elon Musk must never sleep, as his space company SpaceX is wanting to send over 4000 satellites into space for high-speed internet available across the planet - and now we're seeing more details on the Autopilot technology from Tesla.

Tesla boss Elon Musk has teased a demonstration of a passenger sitting in the driver's seat, while the car was driving to its destination. The car went through the usual road conditions, red lights, and more before it parks itself. You get an awesome view from the car, but there's also a peak outside of the car - on the left of the Tesla, medium range, and right rear cameras.

The car sees lane lines and motion, has colored boxes for "in path objects" which includes road signs, road lights, and objects. These boxes will be how the system interprets people, other vehicles, and hazards that a human driver would ordinarily take into consideration when on the road. Tesla says that its new cars have an onboard computer with "40 times the computing power of the previous generation" when it comes to processing the vision, sonar, and radar imagery that the vehicle absorbs.
