Ustart electric carmaker, Tesla Motors, recently announced that all its upcoming cars under production will now have “autonomous driving” hardware. The new announcement showcases the commitment company has in putting humans out of their customary roles. The company statement further solidifies this approach, “As of today, all Tesla vehicles produced in our factory – including Model 3 – will have the hardware needed for full self-driving capability at a safety level substantially greater than that of a human driver.”
For achieving this level of autonomous character, all Tesla cars are to be blessed with a suite of eight 360 degrees cameras surrounding the car, 12 ultra sensitive sensors with enhanced sensitivity to detect soft and hard objects on road along with a forward facing radar that keeps on adding additional data in the system under all conditions be it blinding fog, snow, or rain. Though the driverless sensor suite of Tesla cars presents a highly impressive hardware array, a common bottom line is drawn by a neural net processing system created by the company team.
According to Tesla, all its new cars will come installed with a computer system that is approximately 40 times more powerful than the usual models. These new systems will help the car owners get rid of need to drive and help them step in a world that cannot be accessed by a driver alone. They will be able to keep a view in every direction at the same time and have vision of places that are far off from human vision. The only question that remains to be answered is that will Tesla be able to utilize its full capacity to put self-driving into action? Tesla engineers are yet to give a timeline for complete autopilot feature productions, but they ensure that in near future they will keep on calibrating revised version of this hardware in the cars.
