Well, the entrepreneur made the commitment as he declared an improved microchip for its driverless vehicles.

Moreover, the company revealed computer hardware will be full self-driving capabilities in the form of the new microchip.
However, there still are technical and legal hurdles ahead for driverless cars, which currently are not deemed as sophisticated or roadworthy as cars with drivers, nor guarded enough for public roads.
Mr. Musk further added saying:
This seems to the custom-designed chip which is best accessible giving a notable breakthrough in self-driving.
However, Tesla’s vehicles still aren’t at the par of autonomy required to build the self-driven.
Moreover, Level 4 autonomy is a vehicle which can drive itself with a human on standby. Further level 5 is built to meet the required standards before it can be called truly autonomous of human agency.
Expecting it to be a far fetching design when compared to any other Tesla car so far.
