Elon Musk talks Autopilot (amongst other things) with Lex Fridman

Another (3rd) interview of Elon by Alex Fridman. The interview covers a lot of ground, Tesla and non-Tesla related. Here are some interesting bits that are Tesla related:

  • There is a major effort to reduce end-to-end latency and variability in latency from image sensor inputs to control outputs.
  • In the future, the system will consume raw outputs from the image sensors.
  • Some parts of the systems are still operating on single cameras, those are in the process of being replaced by cameras of all cameras.
  • Tesla is working on improving ’the memory’ of the system, aka what the car saw just a few seconds ago.
