Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) CEO Elon Musk is keen on introducing self-driving cars to Europe and the U.K. having taken officials from a European safety ratings organization on test drives in Germany in April. Those officials belong to the European New Car Assessment Programme (Euro NCAP), which has support from government agencies. They were at their annual meeting in Munich last month. Tesla is also apparently working to change UN regulations regarding advanced driver assistance systems, a move that could allow autonomous driving more widely by the end of 2025, The Telegraph reported. A task force is working to finalize changes by 2025. While Tesla (TSLA) said it was demonstrating “full-service driving” technology in April, it is somewhat of a misnomer. The technology is considered “Level 2 plus” autonomous driving, meaning it requires driver supervision. However, Level 2 plus capabilities include stopping at traffic lights, changing lanes automatically and handling road intersections.
