Tesla has announced that all of its future cars would be equipped with the devices needed to drive themselves.
Now the company’s CEO, Elon Musk, has shared a remarkable video, revealing precisely what the self-driving cars will “see” as they drive along the roadway.
In the video, we see a passenger being in the driver’s seat – who is required to be there as per law – and the car browses its destination.
In addition to the view from inside the vehicle, we can see from video that the feeds from its left rear, medium range, and right rear cams.
The automobile has the ability to recognize lane lines on the road, along with “in path objects” such as road lights, items and roadsigns.
Other automobiles and possible risks are also recognized and highlighted using colour-coded boxes that chase them around.
“Eight surround video cameras provide 360 degree exposure around the car at approximately 250 meters of range,” Tesla discussed back in October.
“Twelve upgraded ultrasonic sensors complement this vision, permitting detection of both difficult and soft objects at almost twice the range of the previous system.”
Telsa’s brand-new self-driving innovation will be installed as basic in all new Model S and Model X vehicles. The upcoming Model 3 will also have everything essential to drive itself.
“This system offers a view of the world that a driver alone can not access, seeing in every direction simultaneously and on wavelengths that go far beyond the human senses,” Tesla stated.
By 2018, Tesla CEO Elon Musk desires the company to be selling 500,000 automobiles annually.
