While recent Tesla news has focused on Model 3 production and deliveries, the company continues to press ahead with the development of its ambitious and aggressive autonomous driving technology. In February, Elon Musk talked to Tasha Keeney and Cathie Wood of ARK Invest about this.

“I think we will be feature complete — full self-driving — this year,” Musk said in the podcast interview. “Meaning the car will be able to find you in a parking lot, pick you up, and take you all the way to your destination without an intervention, this year. I would say I am certain of that. That is not a question mark. However, people sometimes will extrapolate that to mean now it works with 100 percent certainty, requires no observation, perfectly. This is not the case.”

Tesla Autopilot

On April 19, Tesla will host an in-depth look at its autonomous driving capabilities for investors at its headquarters in Palo Alto, California. In a blog post, it wrote:

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. With a number of very exciting developments coming in the weeks and months ahead, Tesla will host investors on the morning of April 19th at our headquarters in Palo Alto to provide a deep dive into our self-driving technology and road map.

Investors will be able to take test-drives to experience our Autopilot software first-hand, including features and functionality that are under active development. Investors will also hear directly from Elon Musk, as well as VP of Engineering, Stuart Bowers, VP of Hardware Engineering, Pete Bannon, and Sr. Director of AI, Andrej Karpathy.

The event will be webcast. Additional details forthcoming.

The over-the-air (OTA) updates are a critical part of the Tesla approach to self driving. Very few other manufacturers have followed Tesla’s lead in this area as of yet, but Volkswagen claims its ID-badged electric cars will also have over-the-air update capability.

OTA updates allow Tesla to do things like add stop light recognition to all of its cars with Autopilot, as it did late last month. The extra dimension that OTA capability allows cannot be overstated. CleanTechnica will bring you more information about this event and include live reports from the scene as they happen.

CleanTechnica Director Zach Shahan also recently interviewed Tasha Keeney at length for a Cleantech Talk podcast episode. Stay tuned for that.
