Elon Musk’s big Tesla announcement was delayed for the two days because the automaker was throwing together the video showing what its new self-driving hardware and the software could do.
In the announcement, Musk promised the self-driving car with level 5 autonomy. This is the highest rating the self-driving car can have, it’s defined as the vehicle controlling every aspect except starting itself and inserting a target destination.
Elon Musk promised that the demo video would show a Tesla navigating the complex urban environment. Well, that was a bit of the lie. The video takes place in the San Francisco Bay Area’s suburbs and on its freeways, and not in the urban jungle.
With that being said the footage is simply incredible. This driver behind the wheel, who is only there for legal reasons, doesn’t have to lift the finger or foot. Well, the Model X he’s in stops at all stop signs, is able to change lanes on a freeway and exit it without any driver assistance.
When we drove the Tesla Model S the few months ago the Autopilot system couldn’t recognize stop signs and freaked out at a very same freeway exit featured in the video below.
