Tesla Next Batch Algorithm

//If you are reading this, I suggest you skip it. You have been warned. At some point, Tesla will face the decision: [which car to make next?] Hardware specifics that exist tangibly including paint colour, # motors, performance, battery size, r/l hand drive etc. need to be built in batches. Tesla will want to minimize […]


Starlink could bridge Tesla Camera + AR/VR to Make Driving 30 cars from home a Reality

Tesla has made and kept many promises. Some they have not kept may be because puzzle pieces were missing. With the addition of Starlink satellites, high bandwidth becomes very achievable especially when they have no load on the system. You have a brand new high capacity network with no user traffic. If Starlink is going […]


Can Tesla make the best insurance program?

I expect I paid at least $100/month to be insured since I was 16 and that ends up totalling $27,600. I gave $27,600 in exchange for some pink slips mailed to me each year. I expect that cost ended up being about $30. No other company has charged me so much and given me so […]


What makes a better battery?

More juice Faster charging and discharging Longer lasting/more cycles Cheaper to produce/minimal human labour Faster to achieve high volume production Produceable in surplus Resources involved more abundant/cheaper/ more environmentally friendly/sustainable Less friction to achieve high volume production More stable/less likely to explode or catch fire More cold weather endurable/minimal cold soak Self healing if possible […]


Minimising Points of Failure

When it is right, it is right. Code behaves as intended when implemented correctly. One of the best courses to get closest to right as fast as possible is to minimise the points of failure. By focusing on reducing the number of things that can go wrong, you will inherently reduce how much testing is […]


Infinity website UX

So, I received this Infinity Facebook ad It immediately hit me up for my postal code. It doesn’t need to do that. The best a postal code can give you is a neighbourhood. And maybe because of me entering my old postal code from back when I lived in Mississauga, they will start to get […]


Tesla could save $200M from one car part.

Last week Tesla revealed their Full Self Driving computer to shareholders. In that speech, they talked about the cost savings vs. their old computer. They stated that the cost of the new unit would be 80% of the cost of their old unit from NVIDIA. According to NVIDIA Jetson AGX Xavier Developer Kit the cost […]


Insure My Tesla

I wondered many of times… will Tesla leverage their knowledge of vehicle safety to start their own insurance program? Why not give Tesla the premiums? They can provide rangers parts immediately upon claims. When Tesla does something, they remove all the friction they can to ensure users have the best experience possible. Shopping around for […]


Tesla saving money by switching to FSD.

Even if you watched the almost full 4 hours of video for Tesla Autonomy Day, you may have missed the 10 second slide that explains one very important thing. [Edit April 24] As it turns out, there are several mentions of this in the video. I timed the slide, wrote the sentence and now I […]
