Tesla: All new cars to have self-driving hardware

Share

The hardware, when combined with Tesla's autonomous driving software will enable cars to completely drive themselves without any input form a driver, though in the U.S. the law now states that a person must be behind the wheel.

Current Tesla owners won't be able to upgrade to self-driving systems, and the new cars will lack some features of current Tesla models while the company calibrates its system with "millions of miles of real-world driving".

Self-driving vehicles will play a crucial role in improving.safety and accelerating the world's transition to a sustainable future.

The company speaks of adding additional hardware to its vehicles including a complete 360-degree vision powered by eight cameras over the auto reach having a range of 250 meters. Twelve ultrasonic sensors augment this and can detect both hard and soft objects at twice the distance possible of previous versions. In addition, the cars will come with a new forward-facing radar to help see through dust, fog and rain. Tesla is just one of a number of motor and technology firms, including Google, Ford and Volvo, which have all indicated they are looking at the production of self-driving cars by the year 2021. The company is planning to give its consumer a full demonstration of the "self-driving car" by next year.

-40x more powerful computer for analyzing data, which uses updated radar, vision, and sonar software.

The rollout of self-driving features will be slow at first. The full Autopilot functionality adds $8,000 to the cost of a Tesla Model S.

According to R&T, Musk said in a press call that "it'll take us some time" before Tesla can offer such advanced software to the public, but that this hardware lays the groundwork that will allow the company to do this. Musk: "Will post video of a Tesla navigating a complex urban environment shortly". Eventually, you'll be able to "summon" your Tesla vehicle to wherever you are in the country, the company claims. Make that 2018, by the pace of things.
