Elon Musk has revealed that Tesla Cars will guess where you want to go in the future
Elon Musk, the CEO and founder of Tesla Motors has said that we are very close to predictive driving, where you car will figure out where you want to go before you even tell it.
Imagine having a Knight Rider-style car, which automatically takes you to the destination of your choice the moment you sit in it.
If we can believe what Elon Musk just revealed about Tesla's plans, this futuristic predictive technology for your car is soon going to be a reality.
In a response to a post on Twitter, the billionaire CEO of Tesla revealed how the self-driving car's artificial intelligence system will be able to determine where the driver wants to go.
In a Twitter conversation with user James Harvey, Elon Musk suggested that in the future, his autonomous cars will be able to predict the destination without the driver having to say a word.
Another Twitter user suggested that if you are going to your car at the same time you go to work every day, the car's intelligence system would inculcate the schedule within its system.
"Yeah, don't exactly need to be Sherlock Holmes," Musk simply chimed in.
All Tesla cars are installed with intelligent tech necessary to complete self-driving capabilities, inclusive of eight cameras and a computer that sees and hears in all directions.
The car will be able to listen to and respond to directional commands and will also have access to your schedule calendar. This, in turn, will feed the car with information about where you want to go. We are looking at complete journey automation here.
At this moment though, true autonomy is not yet available as Tesla's distribution of the requisite software is currently pending regulatory approval.
Tesla has confirmed that updated autopilot hardware with new software is being planned soon and is expected to hit the markets before the end of this year.
This will equip Tesla with the required upgrades to attain Level 5 autonomy, and could quite possibly allow your car to predict your destination the moment we sit down.
