This release is expected to comprise of improvements to the company's Autopilot – and include advanced driver-assist features designed for local, non-highway streets. While this is a remarkable engineering feat and a courageous move, it is also a dangerous one.  on October 21, the company released a beta software update to selected Tesla owners called Full Self Driving (FSD). The problem is the same as before: the name is... [Lire la suite]

Tesla will raise the price of the FSD software package. 4. Eagle-eyed critics will identify a few gaps where Autopilot still struggles, identifying remaining technical barriers to fully self-driving Tesla robotaxis. 5. Major media sites will write...

Is Tesla’s Autopilot Unwanted In Germany?

n September 2020, the EU NCAP, an NGO that has many European government authorities as members, tested driving-assist systems and ranked Tesla Autopilot below average. The main reason for the low rank of the functionality test was explained as follows: “Tesla’s systems name Autopilot is inappropriate as it suggests full automation.” In their valuation guidelines, they explain, “A good system name should not be misleading and contain Assistance to clearly identify the system design and its purpose to assist the driver....

Silicon Valley is winning the race to build the first driverless cars

Silicon Valley is winning the race to build the first driverless cars Henry Ford didn’t invent the motor car. The late 1800s saw a flurry of innovation by hundreds of companies battling to deliver on the promise of fast, efficient and reasonably-priced mechanical transportation. Ford later came to dominate the industry thanks to the development of the moving assembly line. Today the sector is poised for another breakthrough with the advent of cars that drive themselves. But unlike the original wave of automobile innovation, the... [Lire la suite]

Lessons from Tesla’s Approach to Innovation

Lessons from Tesla’s Approach to Innovation Few companies have attracted as much scorn and adoration as Tesla. When Tesla launches a product like the Cybertruck, the reception tends to be divisive: critics see it as further evidence that founder Elon Musk is out of touch and doomed to fail, while supporters buy in — within a month Tesla received 200,000 preorders for the new vehicle. Compare that to the Ford-150, the world’s best-selling car in 2018, which sold just over 1 million vehicles that year. ... [Lire la suite]

Tesla's robotaxi fleet will be 'functionally ready' in 2020, Musk says

Tesla's robotaxi fleet will be 'functionally ready' in 2020, Musk says   Last year during its Autonomy Investor Day, Tesla laid out the broad strokes of its plan for a fleet of autonomous Teslas to operate as a "robotaxi" service. Of course, at the time, this seemed like a flight of fancy, given the fact that no car manufacturer is even close to full, Level 5 autonomy, by the standard SAE definition. Fast-forward to now, and it still seems like a flight of fancy. Nevertheless, problems of... [Lire la suite]
