Tesla wants to dissuade the thieves with the music of 'Rick and Morty'
Tesla is putting special attention on security after the latest thefts and hacks their cars have suffered. Elon Musk himself promised a free 'sentinel mode' so that his clients were calm. However, the former CEO wants to go further with a new 'easter egg' that will be added to this system. This is the tune of the television series 'Rick and Morty' , with which they will try to dissuade the alleged thieves from committing a crime.
Last year, Tesla already introduced a monitoring function to some of its models. A software capable of using the autopilot camera to retransmit live what happens in front of it, if the car is the subject of a robbery. However, this system has many limitations at the moment. For example, he is only able to see what's in front of the car, since the only camera he can use is the front one.
Shortly after, Musk announced that they were working so that this system could use the rest of the cameras of the autopilot and the reverse gear. Thanks to this the future 'Sentinel Mode' will be able to cover the 360 ° around the car, so that the thieves have nowhere to hide.
"Keep Summer safe ... "
In his latest statements about this technology, Musk said that when Tesla cars detect an attempted robbery, they will reproduce the famous piece of organ 'Toccata y la Fuga' by Bach. A melody chosen to make the thieves nervous, for being associated with horror movies. Soon after, the former CEO added that their models can use the "Keep Summer safe" mode. A clear reference to the animated series 'Rick and Morty' , where the Artificial Intelligence of a ship is taken very seriously to protect its passenger, while its owner is absent:
