Tesla’s CEO sees the technology on Google’s self-driving Toyota Prius models, which is based on sensors, as being too expensive. He explains that an optical system relying on cameras and software would be a more cost-effective alternative.
And while Google is making efforts to bring self-driving vehicles to the market quicker, Tesla has other priorities. The company is keen to establish a customer base first.
Thus, it seems likely that Tesla will develop its own “auto-pilot”, as Musk describes it, but the EV producer could join forces with Google for the development process.
