At the launch of its latest Autopilot features, Tesla CEO Elon Musk noted that it would roll out the new vehicle capabilities to nations outside the United States once it got regulatory approval. Today Musk tweeted that the company has gotten approval from all those countries (except Japan). Now Tesla owners around the world can enjoy the slightly unnerving feeling of letting their Model S drive itself on the highway. Musk also announced that Autopilot 1.01 would be coming soon with improved fleet learning, better lane tracking on poor roads, curved speed adoption and controller smoothness.

Tesla's semi-autonomous driving feature, Autosteer is still in the beta stage. Drivers are encouraged to keep their hands on the wheel while the car navigates the road and traffic. If the system gets confused or detects a section of road it can't navigate it will inform the driver to take over driving duties.

The improved fleet learning shipping with the Autopilot update should help solve some of the issues the system has with roads with faded markers. As Model S drivers navigate over a problem portion of road, they are mapping it and their lane position.
