Musk announced via Twitter that he is still hopeful for Robotaxi in 2020, with legal permits the biggest puzzler.
Tesla, one of the most important names in the automobile industry, has been working on fully autonomous vehicles with electric motors for a long time. While the company has managed to gain the appreciation of consumers with the tools it has launched to date, it seems that it will continue to be at the forefront in the future by doing remarkable work.
Tesla has been working for years to develop its vehicles ' autonomous driving systems. Last year, as part of its work on autonomous vehicles, the company announced a project called Robotaxi. This project included the creation of Tesla-branded yellow taxis without drivers.
Elon Musk could implement robotaxi later this year if legal permits are granted
Elon Musk announced last year that the Robotaxi project covers 1 million vehicles. Moreover, according to Musk, 1 million vehicles of the project would have been implemented by this year, the end of 2020. Elon Musk, who has now released a new statement on Robotaxi, said he still believes the project could come to life by the end of the year.
According to Musk, the Robotaxi project has a very important problem to implement. This problem is legal permits. Musk said on Twitter that the legal permits needed to be taken for Robotaxi were still a big unknown. So, if the U.S. government grants the proper permits for Robotaxi, Tesla will speed up the work for this project.
Robotaxi will be a revolutionary innovation for consumers. People will be able to call themselves Tesla-branded taxis as soon as possible with the mobile app they will install on their smartphones. The vehicle receiving the call will go to the passenger involved with the help of the autonomous driving system. Tesla will be able to take the passenger where he wants via the autonomous driving system, thus providing a fully autonomous taxi service.
The driverless Tesla included in the Robotaxi project is not likely to be stolen by a customer. However, customers who ride the vehicle may damage the vehicle in the opinion that they are not being watched. To avoid this problem, Tesla is equipping the inside of its Model 3s with cameras. Musk added to his remarks yesterday that these camera enhancements are Robotaxi-related.
