Expert In Autonomous Flight Explains How It Compares To Tesla’s Full Self Driving — CleanTechnica Video Interview

November 10th, 2019 | by Chanan Bos

There are about 100 companies out there developing eVTOL (electric vertical take off and landing) vehicles, but there are only a handful of companies developing the AI that will power them and one day turn them into robotaxis, autonomous delivery drones, and any other airborne function that does not require a pilot. One of the leaders in this field is Daedalean, a company best in Switzerland


Tesla Full Self Driving — When in Rome …

October 28th, 2019 | by Maarten Vinkhuyzen

Tesla Full Self Driving (FSD) might be feature complete by the end of this year. That means a Tesla will be able to drive itself in normal traffic from one location to another, using highways when needed, but in a rudimentary way. As a human driver with a learner's permit, who is allowed to drive but only with an experienced driver beside him or her who can intervene when needed, these Tesla vehicles have to be monitored by a normal human driver


Tesla Smart Summon Is Deemed Safe Enough & Came Just In Time

October 17th, 2019 | by Maarten Vinkhuyzen

Some argue that Tesla Smart Summon should not be released because it is "beta" software. That is not a strong argument. According to Lifewire.com: Beta refers to the phase in software development between the alpha phase and the release candidate phase. Beta software is generally considered "complete" by the developer but still not ready for general use due to a lack of testing "in the wild."


Tesla Autopilot Improvements Are *Insane* — Technically Speaking

August 2nd, 2018 | by Paul Fosse

Editor's note: Paul Fosse is the kind gentleman who eagerly drove his brand new Tesla Model 3 from Tampa to Sarasota, Florida, to let me test drive it. I later found out he was a software engineer and today realized he could provide great context and insight into software and hardware matters related to Tesla, Waymo, and others. His debut article is below, covering the insane Tesla Autopilot news coming out of Tesla's quarterly conference call. Enjoy!


Tesla Director Of AI Discusses Programming A Neural Net For Autopilot (Video)

June 11th, 2018 | by Kyle Field

Tesla's Director of AI, Andrej Karpathy, took to the stage at TRAIN AI 2018 and then proceeded to unpack the company's approach to building its Autopilot computer vision solution. His talk was titled, "Building the Software 2.0 Stack." Andrej took on the task of delineating traditional rule-based programming methods from the programming methods used when a neural network — also known as machine learning or artificial intelligence — runs the show. In typical internet lingo, he dubs neural net programming software 2.0, with rule-based programming taking up the software 1.0 moniker
