Tesla announced today that Autopilot Hardware 3.0, the next-generation computer to power the automaker’s full self-driving system, is in production. Additionally, the company plans to host a demo event later this month.
“Tesla is making significant progress in the development of its autonomous driving software and hardware, including our FSD computer, which is currently in production and which will enable full-self driving via future over-the-air software updates,” the company said in a release. “With a number of very exciting developments coming in the weeks and months ahead, Tesla will host investors on the morning of April 19th at our headquarters in Palo Alto to provide a deep dive into our self-driving technology and road map.
Tesla says investors will be able to take test-drives to experience the Autopilot software first-hand, including features and functionality that are under active development. Chief Executive Elon Musk, VP of Engineering Stuart Bowers, VP of Hardware Engineering Pete Bannon, and Sr. Director of AI Andrej Karpathy are scheduled to speak. The event will be webcast.
Tesla started last month rolling out a new version of Navigate on Autopilot, which advances the company’s mission of a full-self-driving vehicle. Navigate on Autopilot enables the car to guide itself from a highway’s on-ramp to off-ramp, including suggesting and making lane changes, navigating highway interchanges, and taking exits.
Tesla owners who bought the Full Self-Driving software package will receive the new hardware for free.
Tesla says there are “additional details forthcoming.”
