Tesla’s Autopilot is supposed to deliver full self-driving, so why does it feel stuck in the past?

Tesla’s Autopilot is supposed to deliver full self-driving, so why does it feel stuck in the past? A year ago, Tesla CEO Elon Musk stunned the automotive world by announcing that henceforth, all of his company’s vehicles would be shipped with the hardware necessary for “full self-driving.” By 2019, Tesla drivers would be able to sleep in their cars, he suggested. Musk one-upped that a few months later, vowing to demonstrate a completely autonomous, cross-country trip in a Tesla by the end of 2017. But since then, the... [Lire la suite]

Tesla flying car? Elon Musk teases 'special upgrade' of Roadster supercar

Tesla flying car? Elon Musk teases 'special upgrade' of Roadster supercar Tesla has unveiled a new Roadster, the new version of its original sports car. It’s the fastest production car ever made "period," according to CEO Elon Musk. USA TODAY Want to take your Tesla for a joyride ... through the air? In a tease that would be utterly ludicrous if it had come from practically anyone else, Tesla CEO Elon Musk hinted Sunday that a "special upgrade" of the company's new Roadster supercar may be capable of briefly flying. The... [Lire la suite]

Why Tesla Wants a Piece of the Commercial Trucking Industry

Why Tesla Wants a Piece of the Commercial Trucking Industry As Adam “MCA” Yauch’s bass line fuzzed through the speakers, and the crowd—encouraged by Tesla Motors (TSLA, +1.49%) CEO Elon Musk to “jump over the barriers”—flooded the airplane hangar just outside Los Angeles, there was talk of an impending revolution. It certainly felt that way to onlookers. Excited energy crackled in the crisp California air. In truth, the revolution—or evolution, depending on who is talking—was already underway. But that didn’t stop Musk... [Lire la suite]

ACE – the partnership that changes mobility?

Vehicle technology trends usually happen very slowly and often include unpredictable innovation. To truly succeed, a variety of often seemingly unrelated inputs are required. Connecting the dots looking backwards is easy. As we look forwards, can we connect the connected, automated and electric vehicle technology dots to drive a new vehicle paradigm? The question for consideration is: are they becoming one and the same? Is connected and automated vehicle (CAV) technology reliant upon full electrification, and is full electrification...

Alphabet Vs Tesla: who will win the self-driving car race?

Alphabet Vs Tesla: who will win the self-driving car race? More and more companies are investing in self-driving technology and for a lot of people, this can be a great piece of news. The focus here is rather simple: people want to have fast and reliable driverless cars that will help them stay away from accidents. But as you know, right after Tesla added its self-driving update to its cars, some people already experienced accidents. So, the technology is still in its infancy. But since that day, things have evolved quite a bit.... [Lire la suite]

Tesla's new Autopilot is getting a big update this weekend — here's everything you need to know

Tesla's new Autopilot is getting a big update this weekend — here's everything you need to know Tesla is rolling out another Auopilot update this weekend as it inches closer to its most ambitious demonstration yet: an autonomous Tesla driving itself between Los Angeles and New York. Tesla has been rolling out updates to its second-generation Autopilot system, known as Enhance Autopilot, since January. The updates will eventually pave the way for Tesla cars to become fully autonomous later down the road. * Read more... [Lire la suite]

Semi-Autonomous Cars Compared! Tesla Model S vs. BMW 750i, Infiniti Q50S, and Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG

Semi-Autonomous Cars Compared! Tesla Model S vs. BMW 750i, Infiniti Q50S, and Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG Autonomous driving—what the high-minded call artificial intelligence and what we call real brainlessness—may not be as vile as we originally feared. One DeLorean DMC-12 directed by a Stanford University engineering crew can perform perfect opposite-lock, tire-cooking, hands-off donuts at will for as long as the rubber lasts. Lead professor Chris Gerdes explained the rationale underlying this class project, timed to coincide with the... [Lire la suite]

Would You Buy a Self-Driving Future From These Guys?

Crédit photo:Jan Buchczik   When the owner of an automated Tesla was killed in a crash last year, the carmaker’s founder, Elon Musk, urged journalists to peer into the future. “If, in writing some article that’s negative, you effectively dissuade people from using an autonomous vehicle,” Mr. Musk said, “you’re killing people.” Scary. But self-driving vehicle proponents like Mr. Musk envision a world where those cars would all but eliminate traffic accidents, unleash our productivity and allow the old and disabled to travel...

Pioneering CEO of Tesla, Elon Musk, is committed to the development of self-driving cars

Pioneering CEO of Tesla, Elon Musk, is committed to the development of self-driving cars In 2012, there were 33,561 deaths from motor vehicle accidents. Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla Motors, announced in 2015 that Tesla cars would handle 90 percent of driving within five years. This plan included all Tesla vehicles being equipped with an autopilot system. Musk compared Tesla's autopilot to the autopilot in airplanes, where people still manually control the vehicle in risky situations. Tesla vehicles will use optical equipment and... [Lire la suite]
