Tesla held a presentation for investors, dubbed Autonomy Day, Monday, April 22.
The company dropped a lot of information at the event, including its dual redundant full self-driving (FSD) computer, a custom chip that will run the self-diving car software.
Elon Musk said at the event, “How could it be that Tesla, who has never designed a chip before, would design the best chip in the world? But that is objectively what has occurred. Not best by a small margin, best by a huge margin.”
“It’s in the cars right now. All Tesla’s being produced right now have this computer…All [Tesla] cars being produced have all the hardware necessary, compute and otherwise, for full self-driving,” Musk added.
A live-stream video of Autonomy Day’s is available here.
On the same day, Tesla released a video showcasing the autonomous abilities of the Model 3. According to reports, the compressed 2-minute video was actually an 18-minute, 12-mi journey starting and stopping at Tesla’s Palo Alto headquarters. Check it out below.
