Tesla CEO Elon Musk will announce details of the company's new full-self-driving technology at today's Autonomy Investor Day seminar, which is now underway.

In other words, this promises to be an extremely important event in the history of the high-profile carmaker.

Already on April 3, Tesla announced that the Autonomy Investor Day will take place on Friday, April 19, but the appointment was postponed to Monday, April 22, via investor feedback. "
According to Tesla's first press release, the company" … is making significant progress in the development of its autonomous driving software and hardware, including our FSD computer, which is currently in production and will allow full self-propulsion through future over-runs -the-air software updates. "On April 15, Musk increased the number by tweeting :" Buying a car in 2019 that does not fully self-drive is like buying a horse instead of a car in 1919. " Tesla It plans to take investor participation in test drives to witness the latest version of the autopilot, including a demonstration of features and features that are constantly evolving.
Tesla – and especially Elon Musk – came under fire for promising full autonomous propulsion technology as other automakers and suppliers seemingly stepped back from ambitious schedules and extended their production horizons to meet growing technological challenges.
Tesla's self-titled full-self-driving hardware does not seem to include core technologies that virtually every other driverless vehicle company requires for safe and reliable operation.
The Tesla Full Self-Driving Suite is expected to rely on a network of cameras and forward-looking radar and ultrasound sensors to monitor the immediate surroundings of a vehicle. All other major players in this growing space, including automakers such asand tech companies such as and are developing prototypes that ] (laser radar) and hyper-detailed three-dimensional image. Tesla did not show such technologies, and Musk has in the past rejected Lidar technology. Instead, Tesla plans to take a big step forward with a new AI chipset developed specifically for FSD technology.
Tesla's Navigate On autopilot hardware, which is currently available in their vehicles, is already able to automatically change lanes and find its way from motorway junctions. The system was not without critics, and there were a number of high profile accidents, some of which are due to blind spots in the design of the technology. Despite these incidents, there is no denying that autopilot offers more functionality in more environments than competing systems currently available from other automakers (many of whom have been more conservative in providing new functionality for security reasons).
During the Autonomy Investor Day Event As we focus on self-propelled technology, we would not be surprised if Elon Musk or other Tesla officials details about future products such as theor too. Updates to autonomous driving-hail network plans could also be included in the process.
Whether you are Tesla bull, bear, believer or cynic, the Autonomy Investor Day promises to be a must-attend event.
