The head of the company, Elon Musk, spoke about the new functions of the Navigate on Autopilot system.

The head of Tesla, Elon Mask, spoke about new features that the semi-autonomous control system Navigate on Autopilot will receive in the near future. All of them will be implemented on the basis of the hardware complex Hardware 2, which has been installed on Tesla electric cars since October 2016.

We are talking about endowing the car with the ability to recognize and, accordingly, respond to traffic lights and signs “Movement without stopping is prohibited”, as well as independently passing roundabouts. In addition, Musk hinted at expanding the capabilities of the Summon car driver, who in the future will be able to deliver an electric car from a home garage to a parking lot near the office without driver participation.

All functions will be available for the current set of sensors and radars Hardware 2, running on the computing platform Nvidia Drive PX 2. A more advanced set – Hardware 3, with a neural network and its own Tesla processor, will allow you to implement a full-fledged autopilot of the fifth level of autonomy that does not require any driver intervention in the management process.

In its current form, the Autopilot “Tesla”, which in fact is an advanced cruise control, sometimes does not recognize fixed objects. Because of this, electric cars get into accidents: crash into parked police SUVs or fire trucks.
