I think this is Tesla's plan for FSD adoption. Taking the steering away a little at a time.
Full wheel => Yoke => Joystick => Phone app

The one caveat I would have is off-road driving... Maybe FSD will be good enough for something like rock crawling someday but it would take the sense of accomplishment out of the activity and turn it into a amusement park ride.

Off roading on the sand dunes requires steering wheel. Otherwise it will be a very slow ride, but can't be slow otherwise you will get stuck in the sand.

It could be like this:

Full wheel => Yoke => Joystick => Phone app => Neuralink => FSD

I would be curious if the system will be fast enough to disconnect Neuralink and kick into FSD in special situations when you are driving by a nude beach or rehashing a conversation you just had with your boss in a bad meeting.

I agree on off-road. Even for on-road, I know how psyched everyone is about FSD but I can't see using it much. A smart cruise for occasional super long travel is sufficient for me. The only time I can see paying $10K for it is when I am too old to drive and they are going to take my license away.

The Yoke, I definitely like (I have never tried it on a car before though).

Dylan‘s “The Times they Are a-Changin’ ” has never more apropos.

You’ve just tripped into the next level automotive which Apple Contacts targets and Neuralink portends. Augmented AR is coming to seriously muck with Automotive Industry mindsets.

Neuralink perfectly addresses Safety asleep-at-the-wheel, distracted operation (DUI)and medical emergency which Tiger has already signed-on, surely.

Apple Contacts disrupt HUD and DM messaging revolutionizing in-car notification, warning and extra-vehicular AI computational assist by disrupting wetware directly. Whether driving or riding Apple Contacts can’t be ignored. They could put serious distance between traditional automakers and the computer-bound set.

DOJO is Tesla’s off-platform solution to lift all Tesla’s out of the automotive age into computational age. NeuralLink is the “other” shoe drop that sets it, Tesla and SpaceX apart from all comer’s save an Apple.

Oh, yeah. Apple Contacts has that “nude beach” scenario covered by pupil-reading. NeuraLink the bad meeting dissonance. Elon might have the sense of humor to Easter Egg NeuraLink with AutoPilot vision awareness for “nude” and drop easter eggs for you. LOL

I seriously doubt joysticks will ever be a think for cars. The input is too sloppy compared to the maneuvers you'll want to do. Plotting a course on a touch screen would be far better integration to the AI.

SAAB took a stab at it. It didn't take off.

I'm pretty sure they'd say that about any car, too. They wouldn't want to state any of them as being compliant when they'd had yet to be built, let alone submitted.

When I hear things like this coming from the outside I come to the understand that they mayhave stocks in oil and ICE autos. Reason I say this is from a work related incident where I was talking to someone about the cyber. It truck. When they found out I was talking about electric, you would have thought I had just shot his dog in front of him. He kept ranting and raving about how stupid I was to the point I had to ask him to politely leave my office. I learned then not everyone likes electric vehicles.They have their own reason and I have mine as I look forward to what the Cybertruck offers.

Well, those comments are usually motivated, so we encounter them alot more. Even though they have little in the way of weight.
