Elon Musk: Tesla 'very close' to Level 5 autonomous cars 2020-07-17


Elon Musk says Tesla is "very close" to developing a completely autonomous driving system, the basics of which he is confident will be completed before the end of the year.



During a video played at an AI Conference in Shanghai, Musk said the company had solved most of the problems associated with so-called Level 5 (L5) autonomous driving - when no human interaction is needed.


"I'm confident that we will have the basic functionality of L5 autonomous driving this year," the Tesla CEO said, adding: "There are no fundamental challenges."


There are considered to be six levels of autonomous driving, starting at zero. Tesla's current autopilot feature is what is known as Level 2 - partial automation.


When driving in autopilot, a Tesla is able to steer as well as control acceleration - but a human is needed to sit behind the steering wheel to take control at any time.


There have been a number of car crashes associated with drivers using Tesla's autopilot feature when not paying attention to the road - two of which are being investigated by the National Transportation Safety Board in the US.


In one incident, an Apple engineer died when his Tesla Model X on autopilot hit a concrete barrier - something he had previously complained to his wife about the autopilot feature veering him towards.
