Tesla has become a household name as a leader and pioneer in the electric vehicle market, but it also manufactures and sells advanced battery and solar panel technology.


Elon Musk promises 'major update' to Autopilot software will be available within weeks

Daily Mail - Science & tech

Elon Musk has revealed the firm is about to release a'major update' to the firm's autopilot software. He says the new system will radically improve the system's use of radar detectors. 'Major improvements to Autopilot coming with V8.0 and 8.1 software (std OTA update) primarily through advanced processing of radar signals,' he tweeted. The software update is set to be made available'within weeks', Musk said on Twitter, claiming it dramatically improves the use of radar data. The upgrade will enable the Model S P100D Ludicrous to accelerate from zero to 60 miles per hour in just 2.5 seconds, making it the world's third fastest production car, behind the LaFerrari and the Porsche 918 Spyder.


Tesla reveals new 'ludicrous mode' that can go from 0-60mph in just 2.5 seconds

The Tesla Model S and Model X have been upgraded with larger batteries - and an even faster'ludicrous mode'. Elon Musk confirmed the arrival of new 100kWh battery packs, an improvement on the 90kWh batteries currently available. The new Model S P100D with Ludicrous mode will be the third fastest accelerating production car ever produced, with a 0-60 mph time of 2.5 seconds. Elon Musk confirmed the arrival of new 100kWh battery packs, an improvement on the 90kWh batteries currently available - and said the firm's ludicrous mode was now even quicker. The upgrade will enable the Model S P100D Ludicrous to accelerate from zero to 60 miles per hour in just 2.5 seconds, making it the world's third fastest production car, behind the LaFerrari and the Porsche 918 Spyder.


Tesla promises full self-driving cars by year end, but regulators are wary.

Once the update arrives, Tesla vehicles will be able to drive themselves in a city the way they can perform highway cruising now, the company said. That means interpreting stop signs and traffic lights, making sharp turns, and navigating stop-and-go urban traffic and other obstacles -- a far more difficult task than navigating long, relatively straight stretches of highways. Although Tesla's website has promised features as soon as this year including the ability to recognize and react to traffic lights and stop signs, and what it calls "Automatic driving on city streets," the suite would still require a human driver behind the wheel. As soon as next year, Tesla has said, the cars will be able to operate reliably on their own, even allowing the driver to fall asleep. This tiered approach is different from companies such as Waymo, whose sole aim is to launch autonomous vehicles that do not need a driver behind the wheel.


Tesla's Autopilot will get more radar and new sensors

Daily Mail - Science & tech

Tesla is working on the next generation of its Autopilot system, which could ultimately lead to a driverless car. Reports this week claim new hardware will significantly boost the cars' existing Autopilot features. They include assisted steering and parking with improvements to radar sensors and cameras to detect hazards. Cars with the next generation hardware would also receive regular software updates, which could lead to level 4 autonomous driving – one step away from fully autonomous vehicles. New hardware will significantly boost Tesla's Autopilot features, including assisted steering and parking, with improvements to radar sensors and cameras to detect hazards.
