    Waymo

    It was but they did a year of testing and validation before actually launching public rides. And the 5th gen I-Pace is available in downtown Phoenix and SF. AFAIL, Waymo is not using the 5th Gen I-Pace in Chandler.

    Waymo

    Yes. That is solved.

    Waymo

    Yes you are speculating and 100% wrong. Waymo does not need to remap for 5th gen. Why do you keep spreading this nonsense FUD? If you don't know, don't speculate.

    Waymo

    Everything you said was wrong. 5th Gen has already solved all the problems in Chandler. In fact, Waymo has already solved more difficult driving than Chandler on the 5th Gen.

    Waymo

    That article has a big mistake in it. The I-Pace does not use up storage space for the computer. The Waymo product manager in the road to autonomy podcast says that the entire trunk is available for storage. The article is also based on a couple rides on the obsolete 4th Gen Pacifica. It is not...

    Autonomous Car Progress

    It works like the Lyft or Uber app. You enter your intended destination and pay via the app. The app knows your current location. The software automatically tells the closest available car to pick you up. You get in, hit the "start ride" button and the car takes you to the destination you put...

    Elon: FSD Beta tweets

    I feel like Tesla should add parking cameras like other cars have. Parking cameras would help with those near objects close to the bumper since they won't have ultrasonics to do that anymore.

    Speculation: HW4 at Tesla AI Day 2 and already being installed

    I believe many of the camera based driver monitoring systems can detect drowsiness or signs of sleepiness. So they can detect when our head tilts down because we are tired or when we shake our head to try to stay awake. So if @DanCar showed any signs of tiredness, a good camera based driver...

    Speculation: HW4 at Tesla AI Day 2 and already being installed

    No, we are definitely not. But I am simply stating what a driverless robotaxi should have to be super safe and reliable.

    Speculation: HW4 at Tesla AI Day 2 and already being installed

    That's never stopped Tesla in the past. And why would they be ok with rolling out the bot in its infancy, but not be ok with rolling out a robotaxi prototype that is still in its infancy? First, Tesla needs to be clear about their goal. The sensors and hardware will depend on whether the...

    Speculation: HW4 at Tesla AI Day 2 and already being installed

    That does not bode well for Tesla's robotaxi efforts.

    Speculation: HW4 at Tesla AI Day 2 and already being installed

    Dave Lee was completely wrong. There was nothing on HW4 at AI Day 2.
