The head of Tesla, Elon Musk, announced on Twitter about the company’s plans to teach its electric cars to “talk” with pedestrians.
Tesla CEO Ilon Musk announced on Twitter Tesla’s intention to allow its electric vehicles to communicate with pedestrians using external speakers (perhaps the speakers that electric cars need to produce sounds that alert pedestrians about their presence (for example, the law on the need for electric cars to produce sounds was recently adopted in Europe)). Musk shared the video on which the Tesla Model 3 rides, playing a voice recording.
At the moment, it is not clear what exactly this function will be, how and in what cases it will be used. At the same time, however, when asked by a Twitter user about whether they will use it in the Sentry Mode, recently added to Tesla electric vehicles (it includes recording from the car’s cameras when detecting movement near it), Musk answered in the affirmative.
