Elon Musk Back to talk about it Fully self-driving It offers new promise. For Tesla number one, given where the company is at the moment, fully self-driving (Level 4 and 5) is achievable. before the end of the year.
Given where Tesla is at this point, I think we’re very close to achieving full self-driving without human supervision. This is just a prediction, but I think we will achieve full autonomous driving, Level 4 and Level 5, by the end of the year.
This is what Musk said during a video link to the opening ceremony of the Artificial Intelligence Conference in Shanghai. Obviously, everything must be taken with due caution. Anyone who knows the history of Tesla knows very well Elon Musk has repeatedly promised in recent years the imminent arrival of fully autonomous driving on his cars. Promises that were not followed up on. However, this time Tesla’s number one admitted he was wrong in the past even though he maintained that the finish line was very close.
I feel like we’re closer than we’ve ever been.
Will it really be like this? Looking back, one can only be skeptical. We know that the full self-driving development program is moving forward and Tesla announced this recently With version 12 we will be out of beta. However, the company has not provided exact timelines.
Now, however, this new statement comes from Elon Musk. All that remains is to wait and see if these predictions will turn out to be wrong this time too. In any case, even thinking that Tesla has really managed to develop true self-driving by the end of the year, the company will then have to facing legislative problems Given that the regulatory framework to be able to offer this feature widely in America is not yet ready. We also remember that fully autonomous driving has also ended up under surveillance by the US authorities several times.
