Tesla Autopilot now recognizes traffic cones

Tesla’s Autopilot has been adept at recognizing other cars on the road, but those aren’t the only things you have to worry about on the road — what about the traffic cones that wall you off from roadwork? You can relax after today… well, for the most part. Tesla is quietly rolling out an Autopilot update that lets its electric cars detect and display pylons on the road. If you’re using Navigate on Autopilot, your EV will even plan lane changes to avoid cones so that you don’t have to take control around construction work.
