Tesla CEO Elon Musk said in a social media post that the company is planning to turn Tesla’s Autopilot into an autonomous driving system that will be able to detect road pits and create mini maps to remember them,media reported. To that end, Tesla is using a customer force equipped with autopilot hardware to capture the data and teach its neural networks to process it.
It will also include a more in-depth labeling system.
Musk added on the Thrid Row Podcast: “The 3D mark is the next big event – the car can be routed in real time through a scene with eight cameras and then displayed in 3D.” This could be an increase in markup efficiency and accuracy of 2 to 3 orders of magnitude. “
Asked if Tesla could use the new 3D tag to create pothole maps, Musk’s answer was yes:
This means that Tesla cars can map the road pits to help other Tesla cars avoid them.
Musk did not say when the update would be made, but said the rewrite of autopilot was almost complete.
