Will Tesla autopilot two hardware support V2V and V2I?
I understand that there will be hardware to support for WiFi but the question is will it support the 802.11p protocol. This protocol will allow Dedicated Short Range Communications ( DCRC )There has been much research on this technology over the past several years and the government has played a very big role in this research. I am not an autonomous vehicle engineer but I cannot see how full autonomy (level 5) can be achieved without this type of communication.
I have not seen any mention of v2v and v2i in any of Tesla’s documentation of autopilot 2 hardware capabilities. I'm sure Elon and his incredibly sharp engineering staff have contemplated this but it sure would be nice if someone from Tesla would come out and state whether or not they are going to have v2v and v2i support.
