Elon Musk Talks About Bringing Autonomous Transport to Cities

Elon Musk, Tesla’s CEO, said that he is working on a self-driving vehicle that could replace buses and other public transport vehicles. Tesla Motors have already brought autonomous technologies to roads. Examples include the features of lane-changing and self-parking controls, which will be available on Model 3 of Tesla’s Model S and X. Musk also stressed the need to solve the high-density urban transport problem and even though he was not willing to provide more information, he stated that an idea exists for something that is not exactly a bus but would solve this problem.
