Tesla’s CEO Elon Musk has said that ‘a massive effort’ is required for its driverless cars to get to ‘99.999’ safety.  

In a recent tweet, Elon Musk said that intersections with lots of traffic lights and shopping centre car parks are among the technology’s biggest challenges.

Business Insider reports that Tesla’s CEO has admitted that the company has got a lot of hard work to get through if it’s going to launch a robot taxi network in 2020.

It’s been reported that Musk had set out plans to have over one million robo-taxi’s on the road by 2020 and in his recent tweets had been more specific that it would be ‘by the end of’ next year.

Business Insider said that Tesla will want to finesse the technology after its Autopilot feature’s controversy. Around four people have been killed by using the Autopilot feature, which has raised questions over the technology’s safety.
