Tesla's Autopilot system has incorporated exciting new solutions. Here are the qualities of this technology. </p><div>
Tesla is one of the leading electric car manufacturers on the market. For years, its commitment to accelerate the ecological transition has only emphasized the spirit of a company that does not stop growing. Who was going to tell Elon Musk and his team that in just a decade he was going to get the numbers that are being handled today?
The Palo Alto-based company has been working in parallel for a while on another innovation that can change mobility forever. Can you imagine a world in which there were no drivers for the sake of improvement in terms of safety? Well, this is just what the firm could propose through its autonomous driving system called Autopilot.
Reaching level 5 of autonomy is one of Tesla’s goals
The truth is that you have to make an assessment. At the moment, we are dealing with a driving assistant, which is different from what was mentioned a little above. The goal, however, is to achieve create a Level 5 product of autonomy in driving, that is, one that allows eliminating any role of a person. When will it arrive? Tesla claims to have a differential team.
The Tesla Vision, a twist on the innovation developed by the electric car firm, is already capable of recognizing certain lights present in the rest of the cars with which it converts space. At the moment, the cameras that the firm’s models have they already offer this type of information. Still, this has only just begun, as there are more short-term goals.
Let us see what the next movements carried out by the company can be, to what extent we are facing a technology that can be a benchmark in the sector and, of course, why the absence of LiDAR does not have to suppose a problem for Tesla. Here are the keys to the latest advances that have occurred and may have an impact within the brand.
A commitment to the inclusion of lights and sounds in the Autopilot
Advances in the FSD version of Autopilot have been reported for some time. Tesla has been announcing for some time that it cannot undertake further improvements due to legal restrictions. Once this problem has been solved, we could very possibly already have a safer technology than that offered by the classic driver. Now, what can we be about to see?
As can be read in the specialized portal Electrek, Elon Musk has acknowledged that Tesla Vision’s next moves they are directly related to the detection and analysis of lights. In this way, keeping track of turns thanks to turn signals can be a reference soon in an upcoming update.
The Autopilot will be able to detect gestures made with the hands by vehicle users
However, what has attracted the most attention in the information released by the South African tycoon are directly related to the emergency alerts present on the road. Following this process, the car would be able to react to the lights of an emergency vehicle or simply with the sound of a siren.
In addition, in a very curious way, the control unit of the Tesla vehicle could be able to detect to what extent a hand of a driver of another car can make fuss with indication of, for example, a transfer of passage. It would therefore be a system capable of analyzing gestures with a capacity never before seen in the automotive industry.
An increasingly complete autonomous driving system
Tesla has been increasing the price of Autopilot in its most complete version. It is a bet that is directly inversely related to its standardization, but the truth is that it is a process that has a multi-million dollar investment behind. Now, the fruits of that leverage are beginning to be seen clearly. Tesla is already a benchmark in this busy sector.
Much of this success is directly related to the development of a world-class data infrastructure. In fact, every day it obtains information on the movements of thousands and thousands of vehicles that yield information, a figure that does not stop increasing due to success which is having the generation of vehicles that the company currently offers.
Where is the Tesla limit? Certainly, we are at the beginning of a revolutionary technology that will end with the provision of a complete and safe product. At the moment, there are still various limitations in terms of legal barriers, but as impurities are being smoothed out, there is a greater willingness to allow the commercialization of these technologies.
