Elon Musk told reporters in Brazil that next year Tesla will have cars without the need for drivers to drive at all or at about this time next year.

This is Mask’s latest chronicle of Tesla’s full efforts at self-government, but in the past he was wrong.

Tesla’s CEO was in Brazil on Friday.

The trip was prompted by a partnership with the local government to launch a program to connect the Amazon region to the SpaceX Starlink satellite, but he also reportedly spoke about Tesla to local reporters.

Musk said that Tesla will have cars without the need for people to drive in about a year – so in about May 2023.

Obviously, this is not the first time Musk has done this.

He claimed that by the end of the year from 2020 Tesla will have 1 million robots on the road.

We recently reported that this year Musk is a coincidence Tesla’s 1 million robots target 1 million in FSD Beta by year’s end. There is a huge difference between the two.

The term “robot taxi” means that a vehicle can provide taxi services without a driver behind the wheel.

On the other hand, the beta version of Tesla Full Self-Driving (FSD) has all the features of a self-driving system, but they often fail, so the driver needs to be constantly attentive and ready to take control.

The driver is also responsible for driving.

The idea is that Tesla continues to improve the system by testing through its FSD beta park and collecting data for neural network training. With enough improvements, Tesla hopes that its FSD system will eventually become safe enough to use without driver control, but there were doubts that this will happen after a few missed deadlines.

Electric take

As I said before, I really appreciate Tesla’s efforts to develop a self-management system. This is an extremely complex matter, and I think the company’s approach to developing a system based on computer vision and artificial intelligence makes a lot of sense.

However, I think there are a lot of problems in how Tesla promoted the system, using deadlines that Musk spun every chance he could get, even if he made several mistakes in them.

At least recently he has acknowledged the difficulty of predicting a solution to self-government and that he may be wrong again, but obviously that doesn’t stop him from making a new prediction.

At this point I will believe when I see.
