Sent in a message in the Shanghai World Artificial Intelligence Conference (WAIC) the founder of Tesla, Elon musk, claimed to be on the verge of developing fully autonomous cars, starting with this level 5 of full autonomy.
The company has been offering autonomous driving services for years. However, drivers still need to be vigilant if they need to take control at all times because the autonomy levels in their vehicles are 2 and 3.

Level 5 self-propelled means that vehicles no longer need human intervention to function. Although his vision is contrary to some of his competitors Waymo, a Google company that is committed to self-driving and realizes that it still depends on human drivers to continue working for a few years.
For many, this idea is still a very distant reality due to the legal framework for autonomous cars. Because of this, there have been problems in developing Level 3 technology, not only in Elon Musk’s company, but also by and large automotive companies Audi.
