Why the Tesla Model 3 isn’t branded as a Model 3

Look at the back of your car or the next car passing by. Unless it’s an ultraluxury Lamborghini or something similar, you likely just saw which car company made the car (maybe a Honda) as well as which model it is (probably a Civic). 
Now look at the backside of a Tesla Model 3, the electric car company’s newest sedan.
It’s almost entirely bare, save for the Tesla logo above the license plate. (The dual motor version is badged and says “Dual Motor,” so there are exceptions.) Its predecessors, Models X and S, out in 2015 and 2012, respectively, didn’t get this same…

Tesla’s new ‘dog mode’ tells people that your pet is OK in the car

Tesla owners can feel less bad about leaving their pooch in their car.
On Wednesday, the carmaker rolled out “dog mode” through a software update, a feature which keeps the air-conditioning running and tells passersby that your pet is OK through the centre screen.
SEE ALSO: Tesla’s fart mode is a real gem
When in “dog mode,” the car’s centre screen will display the cabin temperature, as well as a message informing people that “my owner will be back soon.”
The idea comes from a Twitter user last year, who asked Elon Musk if he could implement the feature in future cars. It’s pretty neat,…

Elon Musk says ominous music, ‘Rick and Morty’ will soon keep Teslas safe

Nothing keeps out thieves and ne’er-do-wells more effectively than a D Minor musical composition.
That’s the latest idea Tesla CEO Elon Musk proposed for his 360-camera theft prevention “Sentry Mode” that he plans to bring to electric Tesla cars with Enhanced Autopilot. He says a “rough” beta will be released sometime in February.
The latest details of the car monitoring system — that sound like a joke, but knowing Musk are possibly real(??) — were introduced on his Twitter page Saturday night. Musk claims the watchful cameras will play Bach’s Toccata and Fugue composition. He also said thieves might hear the metal versions…

Tesla is facing ‘hard times ahead’ as it cuts 7% of its workforce

Tesla is reducing its full-employee headcount by 7%, Elon Musk announced in an email sent to employees on Friday. 
The layoffs are necessary if the company plans to keep turning profit as it starts delivering cheaper variants of the Model 3, Musk wrote. The company will also retain only the “most critical” temps and contractors.

“Tesla will need to make these cuts while increasing the Model 3 production rate and making many manufacturing engineering improvements in the coming months. Higher volume and manufacturing design improvements are crucial for Tesla to achieve the economies…

Startup Brings AI-Powered Image Analysis to Heart, Liver and Lungs

Analysis of medical images is a time sink for radiologists, but crucial for diagnosing all sorts of ailments. When screening for lung cancer, radiologists spend up to three minutes analyzing a normal image and as long as 10 minutes analyzing one with an abnormality. Moreover, the varied levels of skill and expertise of radiologists can Read article >

Tesla без лишнего шума убрала опцию полноценного автопилота

Летом на Хабре публиковалась информация о том, что Tesla Inc планирует довести свою технологию Autopilot до совершенства. Электромобили компании Илона Маска с интегрированной технологией автопилотирования такого класса стали бы, по сути, электрическими робомобилями. Ранее Autopilot позиционировался Tesla Inc только лишь в качестве помощника водителя.

Речь идет о пакете опций Full Self-Driving Capability, за который клиентам полагается платить, причем достаточно много — около трех тысяч долларов США. Опция была добавлена на сайт, где покупатели электромобилей могли ее выбрать в качестве приложения к своему электромобилю. Но на днях функцию убрали из пакета доступных предложений.
