Tesla Self driving

I heard Tesla released a new self driving car demo. Is Tesla actually leading the self driving evolution? and Is the quality of software engineers at Tesla better / equivalent or lower as compared to other companies like Google, Uber, Lyft?

    It's vaporware. Elon Musk doesn't believe in lidar.

      And you are surprised because Lewondowski has a spotless reputation? Two con-men patting each other's backs if you ask me.

      What do u have to say abt recent explosion of test module. I wish u guys well but to me looks like SpaceX is again short of cash. Musk went out to raise another $500M not sure if it got filled. What’s ur sense inside

    If you actually watched Tesla's presentation yesterday, you should have seen that it's all very real and it is frankly incredible.

      Didn't notice the Cruise guy comment.

      We share a parent company, but I won't pretend to understand how far behind Cruise is at this point...since Cruise is GM's best-kept secret.

    Google has more miles per disengagement than anyone else. Elon hates lidar because it’s ugly having it on the roof and expensive (my guess). Elon has also killed more people than google has with AV.

    I think we have a long way to go, and Elon won’t hit his dates per the usual.

      Google has maybe 100 cars and Autopilot running on ~400,000. You can’t compare death numbers here.

      Google/uber etc are still trying to make a product whereas Tesla already have a product live , in 1000’s of car which they are optimizing at an awesome rate, so they have a upper hand as of now...

      Tesla also has a ton of real world data to improve their system. My bet would be on Tesla pulling off the better system in the near term.

      Calling autopilot self driving is like referring to a ceiling fan as a jet engine. It's not remotely the same thing.

    Elon is always lying. This FSD promo is just to paint the news cycle bc Wednesday their numbers are going to be horrible. He can’t build a profitable car company so he wants to be valued on autonomous driving lol.

    Elon doesn’t care about this company. That’s why he embezzled from it to bailout his and his cousins insolvent solar city company. It about money. Elon has taken margin loans against his Tesla equity and cannot have the stock price go down too much, even if that’d be good for the company.

      How is that lying? “Can drive itself” isn’t the same as “Fully Self-Driving”

      He talked about coast to coast with no input autonomy.

      Driving a pre-determined highway route with scout/spotter vehicles for around it is a step.

      It’s still different from turning it lose on your daily commute dealing with neighborhoods, school zones, busses loading/unloading. Other cars with texting drivers, etc.

    Demo was the real drive, that shows the technology is already here and lidar is definitely better but cost and size is just absurd

      Demos show your best results, you are very optimistic.

      All the investors were asked to test drive it, I don’t think they will do it until they have a 100% working product , it’s not an iphone which they can switch over if it’s not working, people may die if the car software makes one wrong move ... so little optimistic , just this time 🙂

    But still, it’s a step forward, if he can do it everyone wins except the traditional car companies, oil lobbyist etc etc
