Elon Musk did not mince words about his thoughts on Lidar sensor technology, which many companies rely on to give their self-driving cars an understanding of the road and what's on it.
Some of those companies are aiming to have their fully autonomous cars begin carrying passengers in small geographic areas as early as this year, but many experts don't believe they'll be in widespread use for a decade or more.
Tesla did not confirm the auto model, but social media users identified it as a Model-S.
While Nvidia might say that this doesn't compare to its billions of simulated hours, Musk says that simulated testing can not replicate real-world dilemmas.
October 19 - Musk says he expects that by the end of 2017 a Tesla would be able to drive in full autonomous mode from Los Angeles to NY "without the need for a single touch" on the wheel.
'You'll be able to add or subtract your vehicle to the fleet from your phone, ' Musk said.
While many other self-driving tech developers are putting a huge amount of investment into using LiDAR technology, Musk says the light-sensing version of radar technology is a "fool's errand".
The competition between Tesla and other autonomous auto companies, like Waymo, had already been heating up before Musk's jabs on Monday, given Telsa's recent hints about entering the robo-taxi market.

Tesla and Panasonic have been joined at the hip since the Gigafactory agreement was first announced in July 2014, even if on paper they're a bit of an odd couple.
Global vehicle makers, large technology companies and an array of startups are developing self-driving - including Alphabet Inc's Waymo and Uber Technologies Inc - but experts say it will be years before the systems are ready for prime time. Teslas still require human intervention and are not considered fully self-driving, according to industry standards.
"Probably two years from now we'll make a vehicle with no steering wheels or pedals", Musk predicted, while acknowledging he is often late to meet aggressive targets.
Musk and his engineers outlined an ambitious plan for custom computers that could plan, drive, and learn from the roads. The company instructs drivers to keep their hands on the wheel when those systems are engaged, sparking some criticism of the term.
Musk theorizes that a ride-hailing service similar to Uber and Lyft will boost Tesla's revenue and make it easier for the company to sell its cars to consumers who could effectively lower the cost of ownership by making money on the side.
Tesla also intends to convert all the electric cars under leasing contracts to be turned into robotaxis upon their return.
Waymo rolled out a ride-hailing service using self-driving vehicles late a year ago in the Phoenix area, but it only available to a small pool of passengers who were previously enrolled in a test program.
