Tesla is increasingly trying to expand its market space and profile itself as an automaker offering advanced technology; It was no coincidence that the company could produce 7,000 electric cars in just 1 week. Now Elon Musk, the CEO, said that the automaker should start releasing the source code for Tesla's car security software, allowing any automaker to put it on its own machines.
The announcement was made in an audience of about 100 people at DEF CON 2018 – annual conference on hackers taking place in Las Vegas – where Musk revealed that he intends to open the code to autonomous to protect hacking capabilities, causing other manufacturers
The initiative aims to promote the safety of future self-driving cars, as argued by the CEO of Tesla and SpaceX. According to Musk, such a step is intended to show that Tesla places security problems above those relating to the protection of intellectual property.
And if other manufacturers would follow the same approach, it would be possible to have one for the safety of connected cars, bearing in mind that there are few common structures – – about the protection of network vehicles.
Elon Musk & # 39; s decision was confirmed by a publication on his Twitter account and reminded of what happened during the private conference of the event. "Good question & answer @defcon last night Thank you for helping to make Tesla & SpaceX safer! Planning for open source Tesla vehicle security software for free use by other car manufacturers – very important for a safe and autonomous future for everyone," he wrote.
