    Depends on how he intends on doing it. Imagine if they unveil a uber style robo taxi service but with 1000 humans watching the vehicles to see if it gets stuck or not. Thats would be interesting.

    I think they need 1-2 more breakthrough atleast to get it started. Current FSD is bit dodgy in some scenarios but could theoretically be supervized or even geofenced like waymo to test it out.

          Waymo has hundreds of vehicles and the only thing stopping them from having more is regulatory hurdles.

    Sales of established and in part aged Tesla models are slumping, the Semi and Clowntruck were dead at birth, development of new models isn't moving along quickly enough (Roadster announced in 2017 for 2020, still nowhere near production). He's grasping for any opportunity to get more of his crapmobiles on the road.

    Is he going to significantly refresh the Model 3, Y and S? I think people are just tired of the same egg look and what seems like the same four paint colors offered.

    Taxis were always the logical conclusion for automated driving. It's the ultimate evolution of public transit.

    People vastly underestimate how much money a company would make that operates a worldwide fleet of robotaxis. It would make profits from selling cars look like chump change.

        an uber driver driving say 40 hours a week will likely make something like $50-70k. a robot would cost 0. you could put 2 more robo taxis on the road for the cost of paying one pajeet

          The sensors would cost as much or more than an uber driver

            Teslas with FSD don't use sensors, only cameras.

        Lmao
        A Uber drive is at 20-40x the actual cost point needed to make money of the service.

        Nope. Its just ground truth verification unit. They verify what their cameras see and match what the lidar sees

    Do people ride taxis/uber that much? I live in a city too but since I own a car I have no clue how really popular they are.

    Hopefully not. His business model is based on government handouts and he gets high off of his own farts. But that's also why he'll probably succeed as long as the fed keeps printing infinite money.

    He still hasn't even made normal EVs affordable and worth it for most people without huge government incentives.
    Chinks are more likely to get automated taxis at this rate.

    If he sees a path for robo-taxis with the current FSD progress then sure.

    No. The minute he stopped catering to woketards, he lost his immunity to bad news stories and government meddling. He bent a lot of rules and got away with a lot of shit, that he won't be able to, anymore.

    lol, if he wants this to succeed he will have to geofence and service limited areas which he will be attacked as racist over
    only reason companies like uber, lyft, and doordash actually make any money is from screwing over their workers letting them take the hit on deprecation, self employment taxes, along with having to maintain and purchase the vehicles themselves.
