Tesla (TSLA) Stock: What’s Elon Musk Up to?

Tesla (TSLA) Stock: What’s Elon Musk Up to?

Tesla's version 9 software should arrive in August, CEO Elon Musk said over the weekend.

Musk tweeted and said that the flame spitting engines and the burning rocket fuel are not legal.

When Tesla released the original version of Autopilot, some owners appeared to operate their vehicles as if they were fully autonomous. Previous updates to Autopilot were "rightly focused entirely on safety", he said.

Tesla's Autopilot driver assistance system has had its share of controversy, but the latest Autopilot controversy stems from a third-party accessory.

Tesla also has an additional $3,000 (roughly Rs. 2,02,000) package to enable "Full Self-Driving Capability", notes Electrek, and this is what will finally receive features with the Version 9.0 update.

In the case of the March crash that killed 38-year-old Walter Huang, the NTSB determined that "for the last 6 seconds prior to the crash, the vehicle did not detect the driver's hands on the steering wheel".

Justify will attempt to join previous Triple Crown winners later this evening when he runs in the 2018 Belmont Stakes . They didn't do it today. "He was able to go ahead and get a comfortable lead and let him get in that rhythm of his".

Tesla's cars will in August suddenly activate "full self-driving features", the company's chief executive Elon Musk tweeted on Sunday, three days after federal investigators said a Tesla SUV driving semi-autonomously had accelerated over 70 miles per hour and smashed into a highway barrier.

Tesla's Autopilot and several similar systems use torque sensors to ensure the driver has a hand (or hands) on the steering wheel.

And it's not as if Tesla is just trying to make passenger cars either. "With V9, we will begin to enable full self-driving features", he said.

The Tesla made no attempt at braking or steering away from the collision, the NTSB said.

Tesla has received criticism for how it has promoted the feature. They cannot only enhance the acceleration but also change the nature of the high-performance vehicle. Speaking on Twitter, he confirmed that the rockets would actually be powered by SpaceX technology and would result in the Tesla Roadster's rear seats being removed to allow for the technology to fit.

Some think that competition from established auto giants like GM (GM), Nissan (NSANF) and Daimler (DDAIF), not to mention self-driving cars coming from Uber, Google (GOOGL) and other tech companies - will prove to be Tesla's undoing.
