It is known that Elon Musk often talks about what is happening in his soul, but always leaves half-truths unspoken. However, if there is a moment when everyone was uncompromising in these years, it was in using their camera system to assist in autonomous driving. In fact, he recently even instructed his engineers to take radars out of the equation. However, the Tesla Model Y was spotted in the US for testing the LIDAR system … which Elon has always criticized!

The picture shows a Tesla tram with a powerful set of LIDARs on the roads of Palm Beach.

In an effort to achieve fully autonomous driving, without the need for maps, digital routes, LIDAR, sensors and other needs of competing companies, Elon Musk announced a new beta version of FS9 (Total Autonomous Driving System) a few days ago.

This version is for groups only beta tester Exclusively USA USA.

According to what Elon himself said, the tram brand wants to have its own machine vision technology, and the results show that there is indeed evolution as the system can measure distances safely and behave satisfactorily.

We had to focus on removing the radar and confirming safety. This release goes into production in the US next week. Then it will be released in a week or two to finalize the FSD and beta v9 pure vision. The difference between v8 and v9 is huge.

Tesla Model Y caught testing LIDAR system

Yesterday, some of the photos posted in a tweet by Grayson Brült went viral. They show a Tesla Model Y with a roof rack, on which, judging by the tweet, there are LIDAR sensors from Luminar.

Model Y, photographed in Florida, carried "manufacturer" plates with Luminar sensors, which show that Palo Alto, despite resistance, can evaluate the technology's capabilities.

The Informant, Grayson Brulte, is the founder of the autonomous driving technology consulting company founded in 2009, making him a trusted source of information on autonomous driving and related technologies.

Extrapolating from reality that has not been made official, we can assume that in fact Elon wants to prove that his system is better than any other, including LIDAR. Tesla's CEO has criticized other manufacturers in the past for using the LIDAR system.

Of course, you don't want to be seen as having the worst system, lacking the protection of one of the most authoritative systems around autonomous driving.

The user will be able to compare LIDAR image capture to the capabilities of Tesla's new software and its eight-camera vision system.

Indices on the other side of the Atlantic once again fluctuated between profit and loss, trading in positive territory as the rise in sovereign debt rates stabilized.

The sun was short-lived, however, and late in the session, the sell-off movement seen in recent days became more visible again, especially in the technology sector, which has grown strongly over the past two years due to low interest rates. and that he now fears the consequences of a Fed rate hike that could start as early as March.

This drop in technology is not a promising sign ahead of the final quarter 2021 financial report, Bloomberg highlights. It will be Netflix’s turn today as soon as Wall Street ends its regular timeslot.

It has been a very volatile month for US stocks. Nevertheless, CNN notes, the first year of Joe Biden’s presidential term has a positive balance in the stock markets.

Bitbase’s big bet in Portugal will be on the franchise, a model that is widely adopted in Spain and forms a prominent part of the spaces that represent the brand. After Portugal, the company wants to enter the markets of Great Britain and Colombia.

The Spaniards are in direct competition with the Portuguese “cryptomas”

The new Bitbase store will be the second store of its kind to be opened in the country, as Criptoloja, one of the “children of crypto” licensed by Banco de Portugal last year and in the meantime acquired by the Brazilian giant 2TM, already has a face-to-face service faces on Avenida da Liberdade in Lisbon.
