Tesla is reportedly working on software that will bring "powerful auto-steering functionality" to its Model S.

Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla, has revealed that the company would ship the software, which would turn on auto-steering, in about three months, The Verge reported.

Musk said that the software will make it possible to go between San Francisco and Seattle without the driver doing anything, though he has advised drivers to restrict using the 'autopilot' on private property only, since this feature remained illegal on most of the U.S. roads.

He also clarified that autopilot should not be confused with a proper self-driving car and warned that it is only meant to take care of you if you have moments of distraction.
