Tesla Owners Could Turn EVs into Robotaxis
This conversation has been uploaded by Tesla Hype on Twitter. It captures Musk explaining his ambitions with this project. He calls it a perfect combination of something like the Uber and Airbnb model. Essentially, when the Tesla EV owners are not using their cars, they car list them in the Tesla network. From there, the electric cars could be used as robotoxis as per the need on the Tesla app. The users will be able to summon the EV and ask them to drop them to their destinations. All this will be done without a human driver in the car.

What We Think
Elon Musk is always cooking something ground-breaking. He is intensely involved in Tesla and Twitter. He is an avid believer in technology. That is why he keeps coming up with methods to leverage technology to make human lives better and more convenient. The fully autonomous driving is certainly a part of that ambition. Interestingly, Tesla looks quite near to the path-breaking achievement. However, we must take care of the safety aspects with such technology. There are already numerous cases of crashes while people misuse these features in their cars. Appropriate policies will need to arrive to ensure that the safety of the passengers is not at stake.
