Elon Musk Wants Autopilot Systems in Tesla Cars

Tesla CEO Elon Musk recently announced that he has been in talks with Google on integrating autopilot technology into Tesla automobiles. Musk noted that he didn't want autonomous driving technology, which is what Google is mostly known for. He said that he felt like it autopilot style system would be more appropriate for vehicles in the future.

The idea is that the autopilot system will be able to take over for the driver in certain situations, such as heavy traffic. Many auto manufacturers are working on similar technology including GM and others.

Many people see this sort of assisted driving technology is the future and one of the best ways to help alleviate accidents, fatalities on the roads around the country, and traffic. Musk gave no indication of when the autopilot systems might make it into his automobiles.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
