stage 5 autopilot: musk talks about the new tesla electric powered automobile
Elon Musk said that by the end of the year the company will release a full-fledged Tesla drone, which does not require driver intervention
The statements of Elon Musk regarding the release of the new drone are justified. Last winter, the head of the company promised to introduce a full-fledged unmanned vehicle by the end of 2020. After that, Tesla began a black streak in the form of similar accidents, the culprit of which was the autopilot
All this made experts say not only about the unavailability of the 5th-level autopilot but the usual autopilot-assistant, which, according to many, is still being developed and developed. Musk himself did not forget about his promise and noted that in the near future we are able to assume the discharge of an automobile with the fifth stage of autonomy, with the intention to receive “simple features”. it remains a thriller what exactly he intended by way of these standard capabilities.
According to the existing classification of unmanned vehicles, the fifth-level autopilot does not require intervention from the driver and does everything himself.
According to the same SAE classification, before the current Tesla autopilot, there are two more levels – the fourth and third, respectively. The assistant-assistant of the manufacturer conditionally refers to the second level. The thing is that the car rides by itself, but requires the close attention of the driver, as well as his regular participation in driving. In other words, the head of Tesla decided to simply skip these two rather important levels. But that is not all. The fifth level of autonomy – the one mentioned by Elon Musk – cannot be used on public roads, since there is no corresponding legislative base.
It is possible that Tesla will show the promised fifth-level drone, but it will simply be impossible to ride it legally.
