The Future Of Self-Driving Vehicles is Tesla
From here on out, Tesla says that every car it makes will have the hardware it needs for full self-driving, where from now on out Musk says: "All you need to do is improve the software". Full self-driving cars with in-house Tesla-designed chips? Alrighty then. Musk explained: "Any part of this could fail, and the car will keep driving. The probability of this computer failing is substantially lower than someone losing consciousness - at least an order of magnitude".
Musk has also teased that the next-generation chip development has already begun, with Musk touting that the design on the current Full Self Driving Chip was finished "maybe one and half, two years ago" and are around halfway into the development of its next-gen in-house self-driving processor. The next-gen chip will be 3x better than the current one, and is around two years away.
Tesla explained during the announcement: "Tesla is making significant progress in the development of its autonomous driving software and hardware, including our FSD computer, which is currently in production and which will enable full-self driving via future over-the-air software updates".
Pete Bannon, VP of Autopilot Engineering with Tesla explained the new chip for its Autopilot software was designed with the brains of multiple teams across Tesla's entire business. Bannon explained: "I really love it when a solution is boiled down to its base elements. You have video, computing, and power. It's straightforward and simple".
Musk added that the core of all of this is safety, adding: "Any part of this could fail and the car will keep driving. The probability of this computer failing is substantially lower than someone losing consciousness".
