IT’S ELON MUSK VS. EVERYONE ELSE IN THE RACE FOR FULLY DRIVERLESS CARS

IT’S ELON MUSK VS. EVERYONE ELSE IN THE RACE FOR FULLY DRIVERLESS CARS At Tesla’s “Autonomy Day” event for investors on Monday, Elon Musk was full of trash talk for his competitors and their technology. LIDAR, the light beam sensor that practically everyone views as an essential ingredient for self-driving cars, is “a fool’s errand,” according to Musk. What’s more, he went on, “anyone relying on LIDAR is doomed. Doomed. Expensive sensors that are unnecessary. It’s like having a whole bunch of expensive appendices...... [Lire la suite]

Waymo and Tesla, Same Goals Different Paths to Level 5

Waymo and Tesla, Same Goals Different Paths to Level 5 Waymo and Tesla both have the same goal toward fully L5 driverless self driving cars, but they differ in approach from a design and engineering philosophy. Elon Musk relies on computer vision systems that use a combination of ultrasonic, radar and camera devices. Waymo on the other hand use a very fundamental device among driverless car makers and that is LiDAR. Elon believes Tesla can rely on it’s sophisticated hardware with AI software while Waymo implements LiDAR at the... [Lire la suite]
