Would you enjoy knowing the red light is there before you reach it, the time it will change and the perfect speed to arrive as it turns green? We all would, and for some American & European drivers it’s already a reality. Meet networked traffic lights.
Tesla’s Autonomy Day was last week, and between all the talk of computer chips and robotaxis and lease agreements it can be difficult to see the big picture. Thankfully, JET Charge is here to help. We’ve swept the web for news and commentary to try and piece together what Tesla are promising for the future of autonomous driving and car ownership — and whether they can deliver.
Electric vehicle technology is rapidly advancing, but big batteries and falling prices aren’t the only things bringing people onboard. Self-driving technology has already made its way into a number of today’s EVs. So what exactly can they do? And what are the 5 ‘levels’ of autonomous vehicles we keep reading about?
Since last year Tesla have been recording and publishing the safety statistics from their global user fleet. 2019 1st quarter results are excellent across the board, but particularly impressive is the low accident rate for Teslas running their self-driving Autopilot system. We take a look at the data to see how it stacks up — and what it means for the future of self-driving EVs in Australia.
