> Tesla has been pushing the use of software updates, and especially over-the-air software updates, like never before in the automotive industry. Other automakers have been held back by their dependence on third-party dealerships who want to retain their monopoly on servicing vehicles, which is threatened by over-the-air software updates.
>
> It will be more difficult to stop this progress in the near future, especially with the advent of autonomous driving, and Tesla’s full list of new features enabled with software updates gives us a glimpse at what it can do.
> Beyond the issue with dealerships, the ability to remotely alter code in a vehicle has often been seen as too risky in the automotive world and an approach better left to the mobile industry.
>
> Tesla has been pushing new features through over-the-air software updates ever since the introduction of the Model S in 2012. At first, it was only for UI changes and customer experience features, but things got more interesting when it moved to the Autopilot.
>
> In order to make things more secure when introducing the first major Autopilot (7.0) in 2015, Tesla partnered with Red Bend Software, whose Smart Delta technology allows to replace the code instead of replacing the entire file. Adding major capability through OTA updates has been a major selling point for Tesla ever since.
