Tesla (TSLA) Stock: What’s Elon Musk Up to?

  • Tesla Roadster ‘SpaceX' package to get rocket thrusters

In the final second before the crash, the vehicle, which was under control of the autopilot, accelerated from 62 to 70.8 miles per hour, while no evidence of pre-crash braking or evasive steering movement was detected.

It's not clear which features will arrive first, but Tesla says its full self-driving will allow the vehicle to figure out routes, navigate streets without lane markings, manage intersections with traffic lights, stop signs, and roundabouts, and handle highways. "With V9, we will begin to enable full self-driving features", Musk tweeted here on Sunday, replying to a Twitter user. Despite its name, Tesla's existing Autopilot technology is not true self-driving capability, but a set of advanced safety features that have also helped Tesla gather data for training its self-driving software. Instead, Tesla's new auto will be a halo product, with performance to beat even the fastest petrol production cars ever made.

Rather than the standard single camera, cars with the Enhanced Autopilot box ticked use four cameras for greater better all-round vision and accuracy.

The latest software update, which started to roll out last week, features a new feature that will increase the number of warnings it gives drivers to take control of the vehicle.

The first bezel-less smartphone has arrived - and it looks stunning
Vivo will also evolve from a manufacturer to an innovative technology company that delivers hardware, software and services. The one slight disappointment is that the 6.59-inch Super AMOLED screen only has an FHD+ resolution, most likely 2160×1080.


Abductees' relatives pinning their hopes on Trump-Kim summit
The two men are expected to meet on their own for the better part of an hour, with only a pair of interpreters in the room. That decision has raised concerns about the risk of holding such a monumental meeting with barely anyone to bear witness.


As impressive as those specs are, Elon Musk over the weekend hinted that the next-gen Roadster may have a few more tricks up its sleeve.

It's worth bearing in mind, the official Tesla website still says "Enhanced Autopilot should still be considered a driver's assistance feature with the driver responsible for remaining in control of the auto at all times". Tesla owners also need to add an additional $3,000 package called Full Self-Driving Capability. There's still no clear deadline for when a Tesla will be able to fulfill the company's promise that the cars will take trips "with no action required by the person in the driver's seat".

All of this functionality is "dependent upon extensive software validation and regulatory approval, which may vary widely by jurisdiction".
