The owner of Tesla Model 3 could establish Ubuntu in the system of the electric vehicle


Modern cars - in particular electric vehicles - are anyway completed with the producers different useful technologies, and more often full-fledged on-board computers. However not all producers seek to update them eventually. However, for the Tesla company, apparently, there came such time when it is necessary to think of significantly to update the system of the on-board computer, especially in Model 3. Today it became known that one of owners of this model could "hack" and rummage technically it in its program contents - and then, having studied architecture, to roll the full version of the Ubuntu operating system.

Sounds it really unusually, however if to consider what productive capacity of Tesla established in the model of the electric vehicle, it becomes clear that it only the beginning of such modernization. However, the company did not share with buyers details and data at all concerning what it after all pushed in the electric vehicles - this user hacker laid out results of the works on the Reddit Tesla portal.

From them is known that in the computer system of the electric vehicle there is an Intel processor Atom with a frequency of 1.6 GHz, 4 GB of random access memory, the store eMMC with a capacity of 64 GB and also the Freescale/NXP chip for control of the autopilot. Can seem that as a weak link the processor acts here, however actually the Atom family from the Intel company is even slightly superfluous for the systems of electric vehicles what gives rise to a natural question of that and whether it is possible to make in general program and hardware upgrade of this system?

Most likely is possible as the user no stop levers were revealed - on the other hand, this aspect is obviously protected by the license and the policy of the Tesla company which, by the way, did not make any attempts it yet to prevent or to comment at least. The user even managed to leave in YouTube by means of the Ubuntu system in Model 3 that is impossible without additional manipulations. On materials: www.fainaidea.com
