Does tesla use arduino in their car at all? what controllers do they use?
If not, will arduino's revenue fall in the near future?

BJHenry

No, they almost certainly don't. Why would that have anything to do with Arduino's revenue?

per inserire (lo sketch) il programma, dall'IDE clicca modifica, clicca copia per il forum poi vieni qui e incolla nel tuo post (ctrl+v) ;)

No, tesla uses nvidia chips, supplanted by their own in house fsd computer. I think the Nissan Leaf uses a mega to control all its systems tho.

And from an OP with 93 posts under his belt as I write this.

I suspect it was just an effort to reach the magic 100 posts.

Two or three hours spent thinking and reading documentation solves most programming problems.

sorry, It was an honest question. No need to alpha my 93 posts, I dont have time to post 25 times per day lol

An average modern car might contain 25 to 50 microcontrollers of various sizes and types.  Probably more than that on a Tesla.  None of them is an "arduino", but I wouldn't be surprised to find an AVR doing something like managing the touch screen of the entertainment system.

Very interesting isn't it? Electrification is huge in the automotive realm and it is strange to me how arduino still wants to deal with novice;s like me! why arent they shooting for the stars?

I suppose, when you think about it ... no.

Physically, an Arduino is just a common, non-automotive grade microcontroller on a board, with some non-automotive grade support chips.
As is, it wouldn't be appropriate to use Arduino products in commercial automotive applications.
With the addition of add-ons to make it appropriate, it wouldn't be attractive to the hobbyist.

Would it be inappropriate to ask what subject you're studying for a masters in?

Novices are less discerning, and more fun.


In general, auto manufacturers don't deal with "middlemen" like the Arduino.  They either deal direction with the chip manufacturers (in quantities large enough that they can get exactly the features they want), or complete product-like modules (radios, "oil temp sending module.")


The more interesting "marketing" question is how Arduino managed to lose to the micro:bit people in the British educational market...

I'm going to get my JD and hopefully become a patent lawyer. my undergrad was mechanical engineering.

Good points, would like to see some better grade devices from arduino's side.

They'll be expensive; you're in a minority.

maybe I am, but doesnt arduino have a majority?
