With this upgrade, the car will use more of radar-based information to decide whenever it is time to brake or not. Until now, the autopilot was based on input from camera and image analysis algorithms, and that could be a problem in bad weather conditions when sun was shining from the front of camera.

After the fatal accident in May, Musk speculated that the Autopilot system might have failed to isolate the image of a white tractor-trailer and the bright sky behind it.

In a tweet, he said Autopilot “tunes out what looks like an overhead road sign to avoid false braking events.

And to be more precise and avoid false-posivitives brake situations, the car will now map the road by learning and sharing road data through Tesla main system so, in that way, other cars will “know” how to manage various zones.
