Autonomous guide – Elon Musk: “we will Reach level 5 by the end of the year”

The Tesla would be close to introduce on their own cars in the technologies of autonomous guide of level 5 of the scale Sae. It is the number one of the House in california, Elon Musk, spoke at the opening of the WAIC (World Artificial Intelligence Conference) in Shanghai: “I Believe that we will complete the basic functionality within this year,” he said in a video message.

Others are holding back, and instead, Elon… The declaration is even more of a stir at a time when the industry is facing a period of crisis for some time-in fact, the Houses seem to have dampened the pressures optimistic on the subject of driving without a driver. Although investment in related technologies are always quite high, especially in view of the provide about the standard cars and driving assistance and active safety more and more high, the insiders predicting a long time for the introduction on the street, if not in contexts are extremely simplified, of autonomous vehicles: in addition to developing systems at a height in the operation, in fact, have to overcome the stumbling block of confidence on the part of users.

What do you mean. The level 5 represents, on a scale of Sae, the highest step of the guide automated: it is well to remember, in order to fully understand the scope of what is promised by Musk, the implications of the question. With such a standard, at the moment entirely hypothetical given that the car trade arrive at a maximum of level 2, the on-board system (for the Tesla Autopilot) manages all phases of driving. We are talking about a situation where, in fact, the driver becomes a passenger, is not steering the steering wheel nor pedals. It would, in short, a car capable of facing up to any environmental condition, exactly as it would a human. A car that many have come to regard utopia, but not the visionary Elon Musk.
