    NXP demo its bluebox solution for level 4 autonomy driving, I believe tesla current autopilot is only level 2.5
    in press releases, it mention that some customer take only few month to integrate bluebox into real car.

    it seems NXP is way ahead of anyone else

    There is no level 2.5.

    Tesla is level 2.

    Google was "way ahead" of Tesla six years ago.

    Strange how Tesla is the only automaker with anything remotely close to this superior level of autonomy on the roads!

    Nothing to see here folks:

    NXP said four of the top five largest carmakers are already working on the BlueBox platform. Most of these cars will be released around the 2020 timeframe.

    I think you are looking at things wrong. Tesla is the only car that has decent type of autonomy on the road (way better than adaptive cruise control and lane departure). All these other cars that are waiting till 2020 to release are still working on autonomy. Think about what tesla is probably working on that we are completely unaware of. I am pretty sure they have fully autonomous teslas just not available to the public for legal issues.
    Eloder is 100% correct if everyone is doing so good with autonomy why don't they have at least tesla level autonomy on the roads. Personally I love my ap it works great for my commute I am happy I didn't wait till "2020"

    lol. This reminds of a gentleman I worked with many years ago. He was fond of saying "I've made love to one thousand women... and that was ten years ago!". (Sorry for being so off-topic)

    He just didn't want to show you a grainy SD quality video on your new high end 4k display.

    Don't worry he'll re-record and in 10 years.... nevermind.

    well, Tesla doesn't make chip nor sensor for autonomy driving. Tesla depend on other supply that.
    there are only three company working on autonomy system: mobieye, Nvidia and NXP. (google using a big spin radar, no practical).
    I believe Tesla is using Mobieye system today.

    remember Elon talks: high way driving is easy, city is difficulty, actually very difficult. so level 2(tesla today) is easy, Level 4 is Difficult

    Tesla is not the first to release autonomy driving, Mercedes S Class roll it out 2014 already, about one year ahead of tesla.

    Mercedes system is not up gradable over the air, nor they allow hand free more than 15 second. but that is purely a decision of Mercedes.

    I believe Mercedes using NXP solution, NXP provide level 1,2 system for over 30 million car around the world. today, Mercedes system is better than tesla in some area Today, like prdestrain recognition

    certainly no one stop here, everyone will race to the level 4 or 5. obviously, most of the car makers using one of three.Mobileye, Nvidia, NXP solution,

    and today, NXP is the best of the three:

    they are the one has the complete system, including sensor, chip, software, and it is open plateform.
    their system is the most cost effective and low power. Nvidia driverX burn 250W, while NXP 40w which is fanless. low power mean reliable.
    they are the provider of Advance Driver system to auto industry for the passing year, that tells a lot

    the question is if NXP want to support tesla since their volume is so low. they only made 50,000 while other made million

    Apple Supplier NXP May Beat Tesla Partner Nvidia To Autonomous Car

    There is no level 5.

    Some places use 4a and 4b, where 4a is full autonomous and 4b is fully autonomous plus car2car communication.
