Tesla had talks with other automakers for licensing Autopilot
Tesla is open to licensing its software, including its Autopilot highly-automated driving technology and the neural network training it has built to improve its autonomous driving technology. esla CEO Elon Musk revealed that the company has in fact already “had some preliminary discussions about licensing Autopilot to other OEMs.”
The company began rolling out its beta version of the so-called ‘full self-driving’ or FSD version of Autopilot late last year. The standard Autopilot features available in general release provide advanced driver assistance (ADAS) which provide essentially advanced cruise control capabilities designed primarily for use in highway commutes.
