Musk: “Tesla Autopilot – Like Google Among Search Engines”

May 5, 2020 0 By autotimesnews

At a meeting with investors, the head of Tesla said that the AI ​​Autopilot, which is developed by his company, is far ahead of the competition. And Tesla electric cars will be able to ride without driver assistance before the end of this year.

Analysts and investors who gathered to hear from the head of Tesla the financial report for the first quarter of 2020, learned that, compared to autopilots of other manufacturers, Autopilot AI technology is like Google compared to other search engines.

The Tesla autopilot partially takes over the steering, speed control and, in some cases, braking, but requires the driver to keep his hands on the steering wheel and not be distracted from the road, writes BI. Since the beginning of the year, the company talks about significant changes that have already been made to the technology by the development team and which Tesla electric car owners have not yet received. For example, recently cars have learned to stop independently in front of a prohibiting traffic signal.

    “I believe we have an advantage that no one else has, and we are literally several orders of magnitude better than all the others combined,” – Musk said without false modesty. “I think it’s hard to fully realize.”

He explained that Tesla machines now collect monthly data from a million intersections, but when quarantine introduced due to a pandemic is removed, these values ​​will increase to a billion. And before the end of this year, Autopilot will show that it is able to deliver the owner from home to office without human intervention. “We are almost there,” Musk added.

The superiority of Tesla software over other manufacturers is recognized even by competitors. So, the head of VW Herbert Diss agreed that his company can not compete with Mask, since the 500 thousand machines already sold by Tesla, acting as a single neural network, literally every day increase the separation of the company from competitors in the field of automotive AI.
