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.

The first Dacia hybrid.  "The cheapest hybrid family on the market"

BUT Dacia revealed this Monday that the hybrid engine has been available since March on the Jogger, the Romanian brand’s model known to be available with a seven-seat variant.

The Jogger Hybrid 140, Dacia’s first hybrid, will hit dealerships in March, but customers can expect and order it as early as January.

Equipped with a 1.6 liter four-cylinder petrol engine with 90 hp, the Jogger is also powered by two electric motors (a 50 hp engine and a high-voltage starter-generator). The total power is 140 horsepower. The electric transmission is automatic, four-speed, connected to an internal combustion engine, and two speeds are connected to an electric motor. This combined technology was possible, according to Dacia, only due to the lack of clutch.
