Tesla is Upgrading the Autopilot from 2.5D to 4D

Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla, has some brilliant news! The Autopilot will upgrade to 4D from 2.5D, which will significantly improve the self-driving performance and capabilities of Tesla vehicles.

Mr. Musk’s Twitter follower recently commented on improving the Summon feature, asking the CEO for better performance on surfaces steeper than 10%.

The clients’ wish is Tesla’s command, so the company will upgrade the dimension of the Autopilot.

The issue occurred when a Tesla owner was using the COME TO ME option on the Tesla App, where the car uses vector coordinates to find the location of the phone.

The dimensional upgrade of Tesla Autopilot, however, will allow overcoming the obstacles that occur when changing from street to a driveway.

Even in regular transitions from a road to a driveway, Tesla Autopilot can present some issues because of the lack of information their Neural Network has to navigate through these terrains.

As you know, Elon Musk doesn’t let anyone unsatisfied with the performance of his cars, so we can expect the new four-dimensional Autopilot rather sooner than later.

The upgraded Autopilot will comprehend the surroundings of the vehicle and improve the navigation on terrains with obstacles and slopes.

According to Tesla fans and followers, adding dimensions to the autopilot could improve the accuracy of the navigation.

Others say that 4D Autopilot would mean that the Neuronal Network could learn the past behaviors of objects and movements of other vehicles and react accordingly.

Tesla keeps working on the 4D development that will increase the quality of the soon-coming Level 5 Autonomy Autopilot.

The various patents that the company is inventing are keeping Tesla in the leading position among EV manufacturers.

The most recent patent by Tesla is “Enhanced Object Detection for Autonomous Vehicles Based on Field View.”

The feature will crop images and increase their resolution, so the Autopilot can recognize objects and vehicles and memorize their movement and behavior.

“Driving on City Streets” is the newest feature that we can expect from Tesla. With this feature, the FSD suite will be complete, and by the end of this year, Tesla will provide the car owners with Level 5 Autonomy.
