🚀 Unprecedented FSD implications

Plus: Huge Megapack order, BYD's new JV, Xpeng expands and more

Hey S3XY 🧤, Elon recently shared some updates on FSD development on ‘X’. He announced that v12.4 is poised for release, allowing drivers to go hands free completely from the steering wheel, with Tesla already conducting tests on v12.5 and v12.6. These versions are geared towards addressing rare case scenarios, handling unexpected events, and enhancing communication within the ecosystem, drawing inspiration from real-time traffic data systems.

Another significant aspect is the growing evidence that adopting vision-based technology is not only the most cost-effective but also the most practical approach to achieving self-driving capabilities, failure of many startups employing alternative technologies proves the point.

Now coming on to macro side of things, recognition of autonomy by think tank like Warren Buffett and it’s implications on insurance industry strongly signals that it’s getting out of concept stage for wider set of audience and looking so ready from the perspective of relatively ‘unaware‘ set of people who know little about FSD’s rate of progress.

From a regulatory standpoint, China has already begun establishing infrastructure to support autonomous driving. Elon’s recent productive visit and rumors surrounding the launch of Robotaxi services further reinforce China's potential to lead in widespread adoption of self-driving tech, prompting other countries, including the USA, to avoid falling behind.

And some other highlights from today’s letter 📨:

  • Uber CEO on Elon.

  • Understand Degree of Freedom.

  • Unreal rusted CyberTruck.

  • Mercedes reverse gear.
