The serial entrepreneur is one step closer to his ambition to turn Tesla cars into living rooms on four wheels where passengers can be entertained by watching films and TV shows in streaming, even playing their favorite video games or simply doing something other than driving once they have activated the autonomous driving system.
We are still a long way from seeing Tesla vehicles drive themselves even though the manufacturer of premium and luxury electric vehicles has already made great progress with Full Self-Driving (FSD) Beta, the very advanced version of its driver assistance system Autopilot. The system is also the subject of numerous investigations by regulators and in particular by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
But that doesn’t stop Tesla from moving forward. Musk’s group continues to build its edifice. Little by little the company adds pieces to make sure that when the last piece, the autonomy, is available, it will just be enough to put it down so that everything lights up.
