Elon Musk, chief executive of Tesla, took a big step in that direction when he announced that the maker of high-end electric cars would introduce autonomous technology by this summer. The technology would allow drivers to have their cars take control on what he called “major roads” like highways.
"It's already getting smarter and smarter even with the current hardware," he said, speaking to Tesla's ability to update its vehicles with over-the-air updates. "We can make huge progress in autonomy already. ... Autonomy is about what level of reliability and safety do you want." Musk is also working on making its cars difficult to hack, with several layers of security. So a hacker might get access to the infotainment system, say, but it'll be much harder to gain control of core functions like the steering.
Tesla had been testing its autopilot on a route from San Francisco to Seattle, with company drivers letting the car navigate the West Coast largely unassisted.
After the software update this summer, the cars can also be summoned by the driver via smartphone and can park themselves in a garage or elsewhere, he said. That feature, though, will be allowed only on private property for now, he said.
Biggest concern beside security is Satellite capability. Solar flares disrupt satellite signals even now so it will take more time to get that figured out. OK for cars but for airplanes you need to always have control.
Like I said your replacing dog crap with cat crap, and I understand it cause we have no cap space
But please don't start trying to hype these guys up like they are something special, don't tell me to be excited about signings two guys who have played crap the last two seasons.
Thing is if your going to talk crap about the signings you should be give a alternative. Guess Gettleman should have traded picks for a All Pro left tackle. That would be the only way he could gotten a starting left tackle.
