Transportation Around the world

It appears that transportation would soon look different after Tesla revealed its intention to enable full self-driving features in August. The move is part of the company’s long-term plans to make autonomous vehicles an essential part of the transport network. This, it believes will increase safety and reduce automotive fatalities, as the human element is eliminated.

Tesla chief executive, Elon Musk disclosed that the company would enable full self-driving features on all-electric cars to help the system understand lane merging and travel even further. Mr. Musk said that the latest update would be rolled out as part of the long-awaited Tesla Version Nine.

Enlarging the Coast

Until now, Tesla’s software releases were entirely focused on maximizing efficiency by conveying people or items to their destinations in the safest way possible. The new software is quite a change from that order, as it prioritizes full-driving features.

Musk confirmed this saying, “To date, autopilot resources have rightly focused entirely on safety. With V9, we will begin to enable full self-driving features.”

Tesla maintains that the full self-driving functionality will help ensure “substantially greater” safety than a human driver. That is because unlike human drivers, computers won’t get distracted, fatigued, or drunk. An article on the website of The Center for Internet and Society at Stanford Law School revealed that human error is a significant contributor to around 94 percent of motor vehicle crashes.

In line with this, Tesla hopes that the yet-to-be-released software will help to overcome these challenges. Should the update roll out as planned, it will significantly boost the company’s efforts to make self-driving vehicles a reality.

Operation and Performance

Tesla’s self-driving system can conduct both short and long distance trips without the input of the individual in the driver’s seat. All the person in the driver’s seat has to do is give the vehicle an address and off they go. If the driver doesn’t instruct the car on where to go, the car will look at their calendar and convey them there. In instances where there is nothing on the schedule, the car will assume home as the default destination and take them there.

The impact of Tesla’s innovation will extend beyond self-driving features and safety, as tweets from Mr. Musk indicate that the Tesla Roadster – the organization’s most expensive electric vehicle yet – would be fitted with an improved top speed that should see it eclipse gas cars regarding performance. The company’s CEO hinted that the Roadster could go from 0 to 60 mph in just 1.9 seconds, which should see it become the quickest production car in the world.

 

Elon Musk, it seems, never misses an opportunity to do something beautiful.
