American electric automaker Tesla Inc has brought a software update that will let its vehicles Autopilot system detect speed limit signs using cameras.

When the camera observes a speed limit sign, it will show it on the driver visualization screen in case. A user can also set a speed limit warning.

“Speed Assist now leverages your car’s cameras to detect speed limit signs to improve the accuracy of speed limit data on local roads. Detected speed limit signs will be displayed in the driving visualization and used to set the associated Speed Limit Warning,” Tesla wrote in the new release note.

The new software update has also got traffic light and stop sign control features, and will also produce a sound when the vehicle is standing at a stoplight that turns green.

The recent software update has started rolling out now and will keep doing so over the coming weeks, the automaker said.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk has confirmed that the electric vehicles will soon have a feature that will enable music to be played from speakers placed on the exterior body.

Apart from music, Musk also said Tesla cars will soon include games on its infotainment screens.

In May, Musk said it was a good idea to install games such as Minecraft and Pokemon Go in Tesla cars.

“Minecraft has amazing legs,” Musk tweeted.
