Tesla has always been pretty careful when marketing its Autopilot feature, which they have insisted in the past does not turn their vehicles into self-driving cars, even though for the most part it does have certain autonomous capabilities. However, it has not stopped Tesla owners from treating it as such.
One of the features of Tesla’s cars is its Autopilot feature, which the company has insisted is not a self-driving feature. However, it does more or less function like a self-driving car, where it can detect obstacles, make turns, and also speed up or slow down. However, there have been some wondering about the latter feature.
Every year, we hear stories about kids who have been left in cars while it’s parked outside. Sometimes these kids are lucky where passersby see them and get help, but sometimes it’s tragic and the kids die as a result of being stuck in a hot car. There are many reasons for this happening in the first place.
While we do welcome the technology that makes our cars smarter and better than they ever were, it in turn creates a new set of problems, namely security issues where they can be hacked. However, if you own a Tesla car, you might be pleased to learn that the iOS version of the app is about to get a lot more secure.
While Tesla is known for their electric cars, the company does launch products every now and then that raises eyebrows. For instance, the company launched iPhone cases, surf boards, and power banks, and now it looks like Tesla could soon be expanding to smartwatches, or at least have some kind of involvement with it.
The majority of cars these days tend to be sold in somewhat plain and almost boring colors. Part of the reason is because these colors are more generally accepted and makes the car easier to be resold, but at the same time, the downside is that it lacks a bit of personality.
Ever wondered how fast a car could potentially go if it had rocket thrusters installed on them? We’re not sure how safe it would be, but thanks to @Pslavi on Twitter, he has put together a concept video that uses a bit of video editing to imagine how fast a Tesla Roadster could go (and what it looks like) if it had SpaceX thrusters fitted onto it.
Solar panel installations don’t necessarily come cheap, but the idea is that because they’re designed to potentially save you money on your electricity bills, it will eventually help offset the initial costs. For those who are looking to hop on board the solar bandwagon, then Tesla’s solar panels might be of interest to you.
Unlike gas-powered cars, electric cars rely heavily on its battery where it pulls multiple duties at keeping the lights on and also providing the range, the latter of which would have typically relied on gas for regular cars. This means that the battery in an EV is doubly as important and can be pretty expensive.
Video calls have been around for a long time, and with the coronavirus pandemic, they are becoming more important than ever, so much so that Elon Musk has claimed that video calls in Tesla vehicles will “definitely” be a future feature that will be implemented into the company’s cars.
Many companies around the world are doing their part in helping combat the coronavirus outbreak. Some companies are leveraging their manufacturing and production facilities to help create medical equipment used by hospitals, and it looks like Tesla is gearing up to join in the battle as well.
The world is currently facing a crisis with the coronavirus outbreak. This has put an unprecedented strain on healthcare systems around the world, and even countries known to have really good healthcare systems are struggling to keep up with the number of patients admitted on a daily basis.
A couple of years ago, there was a Tesla that was involved in a fatal crash. Now according to the NTSB, it seems that they are laying some of the blame on Apple for the crash. While the governing body did lay most of the blame on Tesla, it seems that they believe that Apple should shoulder some of the responsibility.
Cars these days are getting smarter where they come with a variety of sensors and cameras on board that can warn drivers of obstacles. All of this seems to be paving the way towards a future of self-driving cars, but it seems that there still needs to be some work done on them, especially when they can be tricked with a simple two-inch piece of tape.
