Tesla has called for “hardcore” cost-cutting across every facet of the company, despite its massive capital infusion just a few weeks ago. According to Elon Musk, at present burn rates, the company has less than a year of cash reserves.
Several Tesla crashes have resulted in fatalities, and another deadly crash occurred in March. According to a newly released report, the driver in that accident had Autopilot activated at the time.
Tesla wants to make your drive safer by implementing some of Autopilot’s features while the self-driving system is disabled.
Drivers can have their cars remain in their lane, brake as needed, and even change lanes at the press of a button. However, this isn’t a fully autonomous driving system. According to researchers from Keen Security Lab, all it takes to make a Tesla drive into oncoming traffic is a few small stickers.
Performance driving isn’t just for race cars. If autonomous vehicles are going to be truly safe, they’ll need to be able to perform at the safe maneuvering limits under a variety of conditions. A team of Stanford researchers has just brought us one step closer.
Intel has unloaded on Nvidia with a remarkable blog post, accusing the company of repeatedly copying its work and pretending otherwise.
Researchers developed a model to predict what would happen as self-driving cars were attacked. They found you’d only have to take out a fraction of vehicles in a city to bring traffic to a complete halt.
Musk updates analysts on Tesla’s sales and revenues. Where Steve Jobs used to say, “One more thing,” and whip out a new iPad, Musk’s one more thing was: Our CFO’s leaving. For the second time.
With Level 5 Autonomy further away, Nvidia has taken the practical step of targeting a version of its DRIVE hardware and software at the rapidly-growing market for driver assistance systems.
There may come a day when cars can truly drive themselves and you can take a nap during your commute, but we’re not there yet.
