Tesla’s hidden feature ‘Elon Mode’ discovered by hacker: report


A hidden feature, called “Elon Mode”, has been discovered by a Tesla software hacker, a report said The Championship on Wednesday.

The feature enables hands-free driving in Tesla vehicles, the report said.

The hacker has been identified online as @greentheonly, added to the report.

“After discovering and enabling Elon Mode, Greentheonly went out to test the system and posted some rough footage of the effort. They didn’t share the literal “Elon Mode” setting on the screen but they say it’s real,” the report said.

Tesla’s full self-driving (FSD) is an advanced driver assistance system that is in beta. Tnis feature is currently available to anyone who paid up to $15,000 for the option.

An internally leaked report last month revealed that FSD’s software has fielded thousands of customer complaints about sudden braking and sudden acceleration.

“Tesla’s Autopilot system, the automaker’s first-generation driver assistance system for highways, requires you to push the steering wheel to confirm that you are alert during use. “Owners often complain about the frequency of system checks, leading some to call it a ‘stop’,” the report said.

“In addition to the current hands-free certification, vehicles with an in-center camera (above the rear-view mirror) will look at drivers to make sure they’re looking ahead – but that’s also pretty finicky,” a the report said.

“But only for green near 600 mile test on Elon Mode, they found no such nagging,” the report said.

The hacker claims that the test was carried out on a company-owned vehicle.

Greentheonly wrote on Twitter that the system still seems to change lanes randomly and ends up driving slowly on the highway.

Greentheonly said Tesla’s software is more secure than ever compared to 2017.

In December, Musk hinted that driverless driving is coming.
