Tesla beefing up its self-driving car software

Tesla Motors CEO Elon Musk seems to be too excited about self-driving cars. On Thursday, he announced that they are strengthening up its self-driving software. The announcement can be an indication that Tesla is working on to launch a self-driving mobility service similar to the one being held by Uber, $51 billion ride-hailing service.

For now, Tesla has not publicized on hiring process and future plans. A Tesla spokeswoman said that they will prefer the tweets speak for themselves. Last month, the company came up with its Autopilot feature.

The software allows self-driving functions on highways. It also allow the car to steer themselves on private property. As soon as it was launched, it became viral making the company's chief executive to make a request that drivers should always remain attentive on road and be ready to take the control.

It would not be wrong to say that Tesla is working to be with the auto industry zeitgeist. For now, there is a competition in the auto and tech industries to come up with a perfect self-driving vehicle. Out of all, it is Google, which has grabbed maximum attention for its autonomous car program.

However, for Tesla, the main competitor will remain Uber when it comes to self-driving car concept. Many assumptions have been made about Tesla’ self driving car concept, but Musk has always remain tightlipped on it when it comes to sharing details on the concept.
