The global leading EVs manufacturer, Tesla, is planning to expand its business in the food and agriculture sector. Since 2016, farming has been at the last place in terms of incorporating digital technologies at field and farm level. However, recently, investors are taking a huge interest in integrating digital technologies to improve farming efficiently in the coming years. In 2018, owing to huge investment—43% up from the previous year’s investment, the capital of AgTech firms reached $16.9 Billion. Even the globally known personalities such as Bill Gates and Kimbal Musk (Elon’s brother) are investing in AgTech and other agriculture-based companies.
Tesla stated that while several progressive farmers, investors, and big producers are looking to follow the path to revolutionize agriculture, the company is seeing itself quite ahead in developing complicated technologies such as robotics, computer vision, AI, and data science. These emerging technologies can play a crucial role in designing robots that can efficiently manage the manual work in farms and fields.
In this era of drastic climate change and a growing global population, the farming sector needs to adopt digital trends and technologies to remain sustainable.
On a similar note, Tesla is even focusing its core business of designing and improving EVs. Even though, several entertaining features, particularly games, are featured in Tesla dashboards, Tesla owners prefer playing Easter Eggs, which has been available on the platform for the years. Apart from gaming, the drivers have even used Sketchpad for drawing on the dashboard. According to the information, the drivers have been using featured dashboard for limited purposes.
Now, the EV manufacturer said that it would soon introduce additional features to the tool in the coming software update. However, it didn’t reveal what would exactly be coming along with the update scheduled to be released next month.
According to Elon Musk, there would be some creative features soon available on Tesla Sketchpad, such as a music tool.
