Car features add more technical practicality and versatility to the vehicle that provides added performance, comfort, and driver ease.
Elon Musk brings exciting news to the electric vehicle's fans and possible future customers as he directly answers queries in a series of tweets that pose questions about additional updates and tweaks for Tesla's electric vehicle line-up.
The Tesla CEO is known to bring and voice his opinions and announcements to his 39.5 million followers on the social media platform. The eccentric billionaire and CEO does not shy away from user replies and answer them accordingly, and sometimes, even in a comedic form.
Tesla's Updates in Twitter Queries
Elon Musk (@elonmusk) posted a tweet that recruits software engineers or programmers for his "AI or computer chip teams" last August 15. He mentioned Tesla's new development of the "Dojo," a "NN" computer training platform.
Tesla's Autopilot FSD and Pothole Detection
Autopilot and Full Self Driving or FSD is one of the Twitter user's urgent concerns as Everyday Astronaut (@Erdayastronaut) tweets Musk a question about another "huge leap" breakthrough. The Twitter user made mention of a big public release for Tesla's innovation.
The electric automotive CEO also mentions possible job openings on Tesla's main engineering locations: Palo Alto, Austin, and Seattle. Musk also indicates that exceptional candidates will be allowed to work remotely, from their respective homes.
The FSD improvement will come as a quantum leap, because it’s a fundamental architectural rewrite, not an incremental tweak. I drive the bleeding edge alpha build in my car personally. Almost at zero interventions between home & work. Limited public release in 6 to 10 weeks. — Elon Musk (@elonmusk) August 14, 2020
Musk answered that FSD's improvement would be more significant than the "huge" leap by saying that it will take "quantum." He added that a "bleeding edge alpha build," the same as to what he uses, is soon to be seen in Tesla cars estimating from six to ten weeks. Tesla Owners Silicon Valley (@teslaownersSV) continued the thread that asked Musk about the vehicle FSD's capability to do roundabouts, to which he answered:
Not perfectly at first, but yes. Will take maybe a year or so to get really good at roundabouts worldwide. The world has a zillion weird corner cases. — Elon Musk (@elonmusk) August 14, 2020
With Tesla's development of the "Dojo," future innovations will lead to a "quantum" breakthrough in the Autopilot system of the vehicle. This combines with Musk's answered tweet back in February to make a "mini-map" for future reference to remember potholes and avoid them, as reported by Electrek. Musk also updates this on a new reply tweet that mentions "labelling" potholes for the car to take caution.
Yes! We’re labeling bumps & potholes, so the car can slow down or steer around them when safe to do so. — Elon Musk (@elonmusk) August 14, 2020
User K10 (@Kristennetten) asked Musk the legitimacy of a "goat horn" to whether it was only an Easter Egg from before, to which the CEO answered:
Also definitely coming haha. Will only be on relatively recent cars, as we didn’t have an outside speaker until about a year ago. Can change inside sound easily. — Elon Musk (@elonmusk) August 14, 2020
Recent Tesla vehicles would sport this new update, according to Musk, as those models have dedicated outside speakers. These speakers can be manipulated by the users to play whatever sounds they want, including goat-produced noise.
Two-Factor Authentication System
Two-Factor authentication systems are famously known for raising the bar for account protection in certain social media platforms. However, in April, Elon Musk said that this function would also come to Tesla soon for added security. Cybergrade (@vicentes) addressed this issue by asking whether "is it happening?"
Sorry, this is embarrassingly late. Two factor authentication via sms or authenticator app is going through final validation right now. — Elon Musk (@elonmusk) August 14, 2020
The Tesla CEO apologized and said that this issue is "embarrasingly late." The two-factor authentication for the vehicle is currently in its final phase of development and will soon come. However, no exact schedule is mentioned by Musk regarding this topic.
Tesla updates will soon come that will suit the electric vehicle owners and possible customers, having the upgraded version that was recently discussed on Twitter.
