In his recent guest appearance at ARK Invest’s weekly For Your Innovation podcast, Elon Musk stated that Tesla is open to the idea of sharing its Autopilot software with other automakers.

While conversing with ARK CIO Cathie Wood and analyst Tasha Keeney, Musk described Tesla’s terms for other carmakers who wish to use Autopilot software, as well as the company’s experiences with other automakers that have looked into adopting the driver-assist system in the past.

Musk maintained that while Tesla is willing to share its software with other companies, other automakers have not been easy to work with.
