Tesla has announced the update of one of the most characteristic elements of the mark, and that has not been without controversy. We have the Autopilot 8.0, the latest version of the driving system autonomous. This novelty will be able to benefit from the Tesla Model S and Model X manufactured from October 2014. These models are equipped with a radar in the front, which will be the main factor in the upgrade.
As mentioned, the radar previously occupied a secondary place and now will gain importance. Will be in charge of detecting all kinds of objects that might surround us and has some advantages compared to conventional cameras. The radar would not be affected by the poor visibility and it works the same in cases of fog, rain, or other inclement weather conditions. However, also will have a disadvantage that will be key.
objects of metal, wood or plastic painted pose a problem for the radar, which would detect partially. Elon Musk used the example of a soda can on the asphalt, although there is a danger the vehicle could slow down anyway. This would be regarded as a “false positive” and the brand is trying to avoid them at all costs. To do this we will count with the help of digital images of higher resolution.
Another of the novelties will be learning system that will benefit the entire fleet of vehicles thanks to a database that was created between all. In the Autopilot 8.0 does not matter that have a car right in front, the radar is able to detect what happens even later. These developments add up to a total of 200 elements that enhance the use of this software Tesla. It will be available in their vehicles in a couple of weeks.
