Elon Musk was interviewed by CNNMoney, and he had some pretty interesting things to say:
Autonomous cars will definitely be a reality. A Tesla car next year will probably be 90 percent capable of autopilot. Like, so 90 percent of your miles can be on auto. For sure highway travel.
On how it will work:
With a combination of various sensors. You combine cameras with image recognition with radar and long-range ultrasonics, that'll do it. Other car companies will follow.
On whether Tesla will be the leader in the autonomous car space:
Of course. I mean, Tesla's a Silicon Valley company. If we're not the leader, shame on us.
Tesla really is doing some amazing things, and Musk is just so cool. Tesla is definitely in my top two favourite companies. I love what they're doing.
