Tesla is less than two years away from full self-driving, CEO
Elon Musk said in an interview with
MIT researcher Lex Fridman published on Friday. And he said Tesla
was far ahead of other companies working on self-driving
technology.

“To me right now this seems game, set, and match.” Musk said. “I
could be wrong but it appears to be the case that Tesla is vastly
ahead of everyone.”

Musk told Fridman that Tesla customers would need to keep their
hands on the wheel for “for at least six months or something like
that.” But he predicted that soon—”maybe even toward the end of
this year, I’d be shocked if it’s not next year at the
latest”—Tesla’s self-driving technology will become so good that
“having a human intervene will decrease safety.”
