Tesla boss Elon Musk said self-driving cars are closer to reality than you might think. In a recent interview with CNN Money, Musk declared that a Tesla car capable of 90 percent autopilot is just months away from retail. Whether you'll be able to legally use this feature is a whole different question though.
Autonomous cars will definitely be a reality. A Tesla car next year will probably be 90 percent capable of autopilot. Like, so 90 percent of your miles can be on auto. For sure highway travel.
How's that going to happen?
With a combination of various sensors. You combine cameras with image recognition with radar and long-range ultrasonics, that'll do it. Other car companies will follow.
But you guys are going to be the leader?
Of course. I mean, Tesla's a Silicon Valley company. If we're not the leader, shame on us.
