    im a bit confused on what exactly is currently available with the Autopilot features and what is not on new arriving cars.

    is traffic driving auto pilot available?

    self parallel parking?

    blind spot notification?

    anything else?

    Traffic aware cruise control (basically just cruise control that will slow or stop for a car in front, no steering), Auto High Beam, Forward Collision Warning, Automatic Emergency Braking, and Blind spot warning.

    Self parking, lane keeping, and anything that does any steering control are still not available.

    I have a thread about this particular gripe, and a lot of that is because it is not in any way clear on Tesla's site. Your post reaffirms that.

    Autopilot lane keeping still not available over 6 months after delivery

    Other autopilot functions available currently are lane departure warning and speed assist. There may be others as well, but those two came to mind immediately.

    what exactly is "lane keeping"? and does "self-parking" refer mainly to parallel parking (when it comes out)?

    Lane keeping is what we are calling the feature that steers the car for you to ensure that you stay within your lane. Self-parking could cover both parallel parking and a hypothetical feature Elon discussed where the car will park itself in your garage without you in the car or even navigate to a parking space on private property unattended. Presumably the latter feature is even father away than the former.

    so lane keeping implies that you DONT have to have your hands on the steering wheel or feet on the petal?

    geez, that would be freaking amazing!
