Tesla electric cars will soon be able to get a new feature that will enable their communication with pedestrians.
All the details about the new technology are kept in secret. By using this function, the driver will be able to talk to pedestrians without having to open the window. For example, it can be useful for warning an inattentive pedestrian about the approaching car.
The Tesla CEO shared a short video of a Model 3 driving past while saying, "Well, don't just stand there staring, hop in." In his Tweet, Musk says, "Teslas will soon talk to people if you want. This is real."
It has become possible due to new requirements for electric cars, under which they must make artificial noise. Particularly, it is necessary for the safety of pedestrians. To enforce the law, Tesla has already begun installing external speakers into the cars.
