Panasonic sees Tesla as deeper partner for self-driving cars too: CEO
While Musk is known worldwide as a business magnate, he is probably most well known for his ventures with Tesla Motors, the American automaker arguably responsible for the recent move towards electric cars. Tesla will raise the speed limit on Autopilot, now 45 miles per hour, "as we get more data", said Musk, also revealing that the autonomous capabilities on Hardware 2 will improve every two to six weeks via over-the-air updates.
Tesla had said in the past that drivers must acknowledge that Autopilot is an "assist feature" that requires both hands on the wheel at all times, and they must be prepared to take over at any time. Similarly, the company is trying to calibrate sensors with the launch of the Enhanced Autopilot's first phase in shadow mode, in which the features run in the background without taking the vehicle control.
But manufacturers must also design their technology "with the inattentive driver in mind", looking at how drivers actually behave when using the technology, rather than just how they should behave, Thomas explained. The company is validating its software "from the ground up", and this past weekend, Teslarolled out a speed-restricted version of its Autopilot driver assist software for Tesla cars equipped with HW2.
