Tesla is changing the game for what an automobile can do, and can be. Not only are Tesla cars electric, but their data streams can function across a network with unprecedented interactivity. Add increasing autonomous driving capabilities, and the automotive equation changes massively.
My guest today is Rahul Sonnad, the CEO and co-founder of Tesloop. Tesloop is in operation today, and scaling to make a city-to-city network of Tesla cars available as a fast, affordable, comfortable alternative to plane travel or self driving.
The Tesloop vision extends to putting unused time from any Tesla owner’s vehicle into the system, having it earn money for the owner when not using it personally. Tesloop will base part of these capabilities on the Carma blockchain that creates an efficient market for cars, drivers, passengers and all aspects of repair and maintenance.
All of this is possible for the first time because of a Tesla’s data stream and connectivity. We’ll explore with Rahul how he’s bringing all of this to life.
