Hi guys, i'm not a Tesla owner, but very enthusiastic about the companies future from an environmental standpoint and from a technological standpoint. I had an idea and I'm not sure if any forum has talked about it so if you've heard it then please just refer my to that post. As you may have read from the subject line it involves road trips and maximizing the efficiency of every Tesla vehicle.
So, if you're like me and have done some Tesla research, you inevitably come across an article about someone who has gone from LA to Vegas on one charge. My thinking is, "If one Tesla can do it, then every Tesla can do it". Within reason of course. So, my idea is for a function in the app or vehicle that captures the driving style that got that person from LA to Vegas on one charge. This information is then uploaded to a database. Every Tesla could then have access to that "drive style" and can program their Tesla to mimic that style if they are making the same trip. Anyone can create a "drive style" to upload to the database of any route they deem valuable. After a while we could have a database full of "drive styles" that can get you from point A to point B at a known efficiency rating. Even more ambitious would be to create an algorithm to sift through all the "drive styles" to create the best combination for the most efficient "style".
Things to consider: traffic conditions and passenger loads when creating you "drive style".
So what do you think Tesla community, has this, is this, should this be done? I'm sure the community talking about it would get it started if it's not already underway. Or maybe it's just a bad idea, what do you think?
