Tesla Model S To Be Self-Driving Within Months: Is Elon Musk Kidding About …

Musk: Tesla Model 3 Must Have 200 Miles Or More “In Real World”.

In addition to the recently announced 6.2 upgrade for the Tesla Model S, Elon Musk also talked about an upcoming update which will include a very sought-after piece of technology; with the 7th edition of the operating system, the electric sedan will pretty much drive itself.

While analyzing the route, the car will keep temperature, wind speed and weather in record and the car will also keep steep terrain and mountains in calculation and all things which might affect the charge of the car. According to Tesla’s CEO, the autonomous driving system is good enough to steer the car from Los Angeles to San Francisco without requiring any driver input; the driver just needs to enter the destination into the GPS and guide the car to the freeway, the computer takes care of the rest. On Thursday, Musk in a conference call with reporters said, “You’ve got intelligent charging stations and intelligent cars communicating in a big network,” and he added, “That’s never existed before.” The update of the software is Tesla’s most recent effort to tackle the “range anxiety” which makes drivers doubtful about buying an electric car.

He has reshaped the future of electric and hybrid cars and transportation by creating the company Tesla Motors, which is basically forcing larger automotive manufacturers into researching and developing electric cars and more efficient hybrids. He’s already said that the $35,000 price tag must be achieved without tax credits, and now he’s saying that the 200 miles of driving range has to be attainable “in real world” driving conditions. Elon Musk stated, “Most cars don’t improve over time,” and he further added, “But the Model S, by virtue of its software updates, does actually get faster, smarter and better.” Elon Musk is such an inspiring person to me because his overall goal is not only to make a lot of money selling electric cars, but also to change the whole car market to cars that are more efficient.

So what’s he mean by “in the real world?” More than just an MTV reality show, the “real world” phrase is often tossed around in reference to the driving range of electric vehicles. Not only is it needed because of these recent additions, but there was also some mention that there might be some future changes in the way Model S drivers interact with their cars. When Musk says the Model 3 must be able to travel 200 miles in the real world, he is implying that more range might actually be built into the pack by the EPA’s standards. It was a huge adrenaline rush for me even just to be there, but I love it and it was a significant contributor in my preferred career choice and college major.

Louis, our team admittedly didn’t do well in the overall rank standings, but everyone stayed optimistic and we learned a lot and that will directly translate to (hopefully) our success with this year’s robot. A: Graduate from a good university with a mechanical engineering degree; work as an engineer for Tesla Motors, a company I am extremely passionate about in the automotive field, and contribute something meaningful to the company; and possibly go for a master’s degree in engineering or business.
