Autopilot is a technique that allows an aircraft to be controlled with no constant ‘hands-on’. However, the most advanced autopilots are set to be released onto the roads. The advancement of autopilots in the automotive industry is rapidly growing. The majority of automobile companies are battling for the title of driverless vehicle. Tesla is close to hitting the target with Google’s Waymo being a close second on its final stretch, so we should be looking at updates in order to determine who will win the race.
Tesla’s desire for a full and final length autopilots that enhance security measures is currently on its way to bringing the most recent features that are up-to-date. Tesla has partnered with several businesses to create a secure autopilot. Forbye models X and S, Model 3 possesses an upgraded autopilot that is designed by Tesla and has absolute security. Model 3.0 comes with an exclusive Tesla-designed processor that connects to application-specific integrated circuits (ASIC) chips. Tesla claims that the new system would process 220 frames per second, 10 times more reliable than the hardware 2.5. The company called it an “neural network accelerator”. It was tested in a crash, and it was awarded five stars at every level by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
Recently, an over-air update to Florida’s Tesla users saved the life of a by helping remove the Hurricane Irma affected area. The update boosted the battery’s capacity by 5kw, allowing users to travel further than usual.

Waymo is a program that was initiated through Google’s parent firm Alphabet. It began in 2009 to improve the technology to create a self-driving vehicle or driverless vehicle. Google has been conducting tests on its prototype automobile on US roads. It’s still for testing in the UK and also shared a few details regarding how its self-driving vehicles operate. It comes with a rotating rooftop LiDAR camera that makes use of LEDs of either 32 or 64 that estimate the distance from the object and create a 3D map with a distance of 200m, which allows the vehicle to identify dangers. There is also the standard camera, which looks through the windshield. It also identifies nearby dangers like cyclists, pedestrians as well as other motorists, and also to see road signs and traffic signals.
Google’s auto-driving car is able to quickly recognize a bicycle and determine that if a cyclist raises an arm, they are planning to move. It then knows to slow down and allow the bike enough room to be able to function safely. The mission of Waymo is to make it safer and easy for both people and objects to move and strive to provide fully autonomous driving technology to the entire world.
