Continue to advance our self-driving ambitions! Reuters to develop FSD Musk plans to build data center on land

\”Reuters\” quoted the latest report from people familiar with the matter on Friday (17th) that the U.S. electric vehicle manufacturer Tesla (TSLA-US) is planning to use Tesla electric vehicle data from China to promote Tesla\’s Global development efforts for fully automated assisted driving (FSD).

\”Reuters\” reported on Friday (17th), citing people familiar with the matter, that the U.S. electric vehicle manufacturer Tesla (TSLA-US) is planning to use Tesla electric vehicle data from China to promote Tesla\’s fully autonomous Global development efforts for Assisted Driving (FSD).
Two people familiar with the matter, who asked not to be named, revealed that Tesla has been formulating plans to establish a data center in China to train the algorithms required for FSD. They and another person familiar with the matter also pointed out that Tesla is still working hard to win over China in the near future. Regulators approved the transfer of data generated by its electric vehicles in China abroad for use in fully autonomous driving (FSD) systems.
It is unclear whether Tesla will choose to build a data center locally and send Chinese data abroad or treat it as a parallel plan.
Tesla\’s actions highlight Tesla\’s bet that breakthroughs in AI technology will accelerate as demand for electric vehicles slows and competition intensifies.
Tesla is working to make fuller use of data from Chinese cars to develop self-driving technology as Washington attempts to curb U.S. companies from transferring AI technology to China.
Expanding FSD\’s business in the Chinese market in the face of competition from Chinese rivals such as BYD (002594-CN) will boost Tesla\’s revenue and profits.
Two people familiar with the matter pointed out that establishing a data center for FSD development in China must cooperate with Chinese partners and may also face challenges in hardware procurement. Tesla has discussed purchasing GPU chips for the Chinese data center with Huida, but Huida and its partners are unable to sell their most advanced chips in China under U.S. sanctions.
Two people familiar with the matter also said that during a whirlwind visit to Beijing last month to meet with Chinese Prime Minister Li Qiang, Musk tried to obtain a license for Tesla\’s data transmission, so the possibility of Tesla investing in a data center in China increased.
A person familiar with the matter also noted that Musk has also discussed the possibility of Tesla licensing its own FSD system to Chinese electric car manufacturers.
In April this year, Musk said Tesla was negotiating with another \”major\” car manufacturer for FSD authorization but did not disclose the name of the company.
