Experimental Station at Colorado Springs where the first wireless transmission experiments were preformed The coil creates millions of volts of electricity with a frequency rate of , alterations per second. One of the original Tesla Electric Motors from which is today the main power of for industry and household appliances.

Tesla's Electric Motor is one of the ten greatest inventions of all times. Tesla is the father of high frequency high voltage electricity which is used today in radio and other communication devices. Here is a photo from Colorado Springs, Colorado in , illustrating the capacity of the oscillator to create electricity of millions of volts and a frequency of , alternations per second. Nikola Tesla holding a gas-filled phosphor-coated light bulb which was illuminated without wires by an electromagnetic field from the "Tesla Coil".

Nikola Tesla was the genius who lit the world, whose discoveries in the field of alternating polyphase current electricity advanced the United States and the rest of the world into the modern industrial era.

Nikola Tesla had patents in the US and Europe. Tesla's discoveries include the Tesla Coil, fluorescent light, wireless transmission of electrical energy, radio, remote control, discovery of cosmic radio waves and use of ionosphere for scientific purposes. Tesla's impact on our civilization is tremendous, and his memory should be kept alive.

In , Tesla was awarded the Edison Medal , the most coveted electrical prize in the United States. The award has been given annually since The award is furnished by Siemens Westinghouse Power Corporation. Tesla is known as the inventor of the polyphase alternating current. The Nikola Tesla Corner Sign located at the intersection of 40th Street and 6th Avenue in Manhattan, is a constant reminder to all New Yorkers of the greatness of this genius. Many of the new technologies in the world today, are based on Tesla's ideas.

Tesla spent 50 years of his life to find a way for interplanetary communications, especially with Mars. He is the first scientist in the world to use the Ionosphere for scientific purposes The Ionosphere is the upper part the atmosphere under constant bombardment of solar energy, which breaks down molecules into ions causing an ionized shield of our atmosphere, very important for radio communications.

Nikola Tesla is a unifying force for the people of the Balkans, and the people of the previous Austro-Hungary Empire an area of Europe devoted to science and progress. Every child in the Balkans knows about Tesla.

This day will signify a day of science, cosmos explorations, and brotherhood among nations and religions around the world. We are asking all Tesla admirers and all governments around the world to support the idea of "Nikola Tesla Day". This was the first great victory of Tesla's Alternating Current Electricity. Tesla and George Westinghouse started the electrification of the globe.

This film was produced in association with Columbia University Physics Department. This is one of the rare documentary films about Michael Pupin, the history of Columbia University and the history of American Immigration. Participants of the film are: WU - Pupin Medalist. Nikola Tesla's name has been honored with the international unit of magnetic flux density called "Tesla". MRI machines work on the principle of a homogeneous magnet field. According to Tesla, these features are redundant because of the advanced thermal management system and an intumescent chemical in the battery to prevent fires.

The batteries are placed under the vehicle floor. This saves interior and trunk space but increases risk of battery damage by debris or impact. The Model S has 0. He also prefers recycling over re-use for grid once they reach the end of their useful life for vehicles. Tesla makes two kinds of electric motors. A three-phase four-pole AC induction motor with a copper rotor [] by which the Tesla logo is inspired is used in the Model S and Model X, and permanent magnet motors are used in the Model 3 and Semi.

Tesla Autopilot provides semi-autonomous driver assist beginning in September Tesla replaced its sensors and software in Hardware version 2, or "HW2".

As of , Autopilot included adaptive cruise control , lane departure warning , emergency braking, Autosteer semi-automated steering , Autopark parallel and perpendicular parking and Summon recalling the vehicle from a parking place. At the end of , Tesla expected to demonstrate full autonomy by the end of In November , the company announced the Tesla glass technology group. The group produced the roof glass for the Tesla Model 3 and for use in SolarCity roof tiles announced in October The firm's first vehicle, the first-generation Tesla Roadster is no longer sold.

Production was rescheduled several times, from to late , [] to the second quarter of , [] to the third quarter of Deliveries of the Model X Signature series began on September 29, Model X sales totaled 2, units during the first quarter of , rising to 4, in the second quarter of Global deliveries totaled 25, units in , [] and 46, in In September , the Model X ranked as the top selling plug-in electric car in Norway.

On March 31, , Tesla unveiled the car. In August , the Model 3 surpassed the Nissan Leaf as world's best selling plug-in car during , with a record of about 17, units delivered, a monthly sales record for plug-in cars previously held by the BAIC EC-Series. Through a surprise reveal at the end of the event that introduced the Semi on November 16, , Tesla unveiled the Roadster. The vehicle will have three electric motors allowing for all-wheel drive , and torque vectoring during cornering.

Those who made a reservation at the event were allowed a test drive with a driver in the prototype. The Tesla Semi is an all-electric Class 8 semi-trailer truck first mentioned in the Tesla Master plan. The vehicle's official announcement was at a November 16, press conference where two prototypes were shown.

A minute charge would provide miles of range. In February , Tesla announced that they would unveil Model Y production plans within the next 3—6 months [] and posted open positions for Model Y production and design.

The job description on the Tesla website states: In , Musk indicated he hoped to one day produce a car cheaper than the Model 3: There will be future cars that will be even more affordable down the road. With fourth generation and smaller cars and what not, we'll ultimately be in a position where everyone can afford the car.

On July 20, , Musk detailed his new master plan for Tesla. It includes more affordable cars produced in higher volume, solar-power roofs, mid-size vehicles, SUVs and pickup trucks, as well as the refinement of autonomous vehicles and the creation of a sharing economy , in which cars can be active while the owner is not using them.

At the company's annual shareholder meeting in June , Musk revealed Tesla's intention to enter a new market segment, offering a compact hatchback in "less than five years". The company announced larger-scale configurations for industrial users in units of kWh. The company planned to open source its patents for the entire range.

Initial cells were made by Panasonic. In February , Musk announced plans to build three additional Gigafactories to increase its battery manufacturing. After Puerto Rico faced a hurricane, Elon Musk offered to work with Puerto Rico's government in rebuilding its solar energy grid.

In , Tesla began building a network of volt fast-charging Supercharger stations. All Tesla cars come standard with Supercharging hardware. Model S and X cars ordered after January 15, get kWh of free Supercharging credits, which provides a range of roughly 1, kilometres or 1, miles per year. Cars purchased before that date get free supercharging. In December , after a complaint sent to Musk via Twitter about abuse, Tesla announced that it will start charging an "idle" fee for vehicles that continue to occupy charging stations after they are fully charged.

In , Tesla discreetly launched the "Destination Charging Location" Network by providing chargers to hotels, restaurants, shopping centers, resorts and other full service stations to provide on-site vehicle charging at twice the power of a typical charging location.

All installed chargers appear in the in-car navigation system. In addition to its corporate headquarters, the company operates multiple large factories for making vehicles and their components. The company operates [] showrooms and galleries around the world. Tesla was founded in San Carlos, California. Tesla occupies a second factory in Fremont.

The location is next to a SolarCity facility, a few miles from the original Fremont plant. Gigafactory 1 is located outside Reno, Nevada. As of January [update] , it occupied 1. It produces Powerwalls and Powerpacks [] [] as well as battery cells [] in partnership with Panasonic.

It also produces Model 3 battery packs and drivetrains. The factory received substantial subsidies from local and state government. In August , Tesla had a whistleblower problem. Karl Hansen was a former member of the company's security team. He filed a tip with the Securities and Exchange Commission. In the tip, he alleged that Tesla suppressed an internal investigation into various criminal activities at the Nevada Gigafactory.

Hansen said that the company refused to tell the DEA about several employees who were allegedly moving cocaine and crystal methamphetamine on behalf of a Mexican drug cartel. Additionally, he said the company fired an employee who reported the theft for the reason that the employee was "not a Tesla team player. It is operated by Tesla's SolarCity unit. Tesla partnered with Panasonic to assemble photovoltaic panel modules. Tesla received incentives to locate the factory in Buffalo through the Buffalo Billion program.

Tesla opened its first European store in June in London. In late , Tesla acquired German engineering firm Grohmann Engineering in Prüm as a new division dedicated to helping Tesla increase the automation and effectiveness of its manufacturing process. As of February , Tesla is building a small research and development office in Athens, Greece. In July , it was reported that Tesla was exploring building its first major European factory in Germany or the Netherlands.

Tesla opened its first Japanese showroom in Aoyama , Japan, in October Showrooms and service centers operate in Hong Kong, [] Beijing and Shanghai. It also opened two showrooms in March [] and a service center in South Korea in late In July , Tesla has signed an agreement with Chinese authorities to build a factory in Shanghai, China and will be Tesla's first Gigafactory outside of the United States. Tesla opened a showroom in Sydney in In July , Tesla won a contract to install the world's biggest grid-scale battery in South Australia by promising installation within days.

Unlike many traditional manufacturers, Tesla operates as an original equipment manufacturer OEM , manufacturing powertrain components for other automakers. Tesla has confirmed partnerships with Daimler and Toyota. It also works with Panasonic as a partner in battery and solar panel research and development. The company supplies battery packs for Freightliner Trucks ' Custom Chassis electric van.

Starting in late , Daimler AG and Tesla began working together. Aabar is an Abu Dhabi government investment vehicle. On June 5, , Toyota announced that it had sold all of its shares in Tesla and halted co-operation, as Toyota created their own electric car division.

Toyota built 35 of these converted RAV4s Phase Zero vehicles for a demonstration and evaluation program that ran through The lithium metal-oxide battery and other powertrain components were supplied by Tesla. On January 7, , Tesla and battery cell maker Panasonic announced that they would together develop nickel-based lithium-ion battery cells for electric vehicles.

In July , Panasonic reached a basic agreement with Tesla to participate in Gigafactory 1. Tesla and Panasonic also collaborate on the manufacturing and production of photovoltaic PV cells and modules in Buffalo, New York. In August , Tesla partnered with Airbnb to provide destination chargers at certain host houses, initially in California. Tesla partnered with Liberty Mutual Insurance Company to offer an auto-insurance plan designed specifically for its electric cars.

The plan was made available to US customers In October On April 14, , Tesla sued Fisker Automotive , alleging that Henrik Fisker "stole design ideas and confidential information related to the design of hybrid and electric cars" and was using that information to develop the Fisker Karma. Tesla had hired Fisker Coachbuild to design the WhiteStar sedan, but rejected the design that Musk considered "substandard".

The company founding was the subject of a lawsuit that was later dropped after an out-of-court settlement. One public provision said that the parties will consider Eberhard, Musk, Straubel, Tarpenning and Wright to be the five co-founders. Eberhard issued a statement about Musk's foundational role in the company: In early , Tesla reportedly tried to break the exclusivity agreement their charging partner in the UK had for locations along the UK's highways and tried to "blacken Ecotricity's name with politicians and the media".

Tesla filed a lawsuit against the BBC for libel and malicious falsehood, claiming that two cars were provided and that at any point, at least one was ready to drive.

In early , Tesla approached the New York Times to publish a story "Focused on future advancements in our Supercharger technology". The author describes fundamental flaws in the Model S sedan, primarily that the range was severely lowered in the below-freezing temperatures of the American Northeast. At one point the vehicle died completely and needed to be towed to a charging station.

He called it a "salacious story" and provided data, annotated screenshots and maps obtained from recording equipment installed in the press vehicle as evidence that the New York Times had fabricated much of the story. When the Model S valiantly refused to die, he eventually plugged it in. In a statement, the Times stood by the accuracy of the story, calling it "completely factual". I was not trying to drain the battery.

It was already on reserve power. As soon as I found the Supercharger, I plugged the car in. During further investigation by the media, Musk said "the Model S battery never ran out of energy at any time, including when Broder called the flatbed truck. Their records showed that "the car's battery pack was completely drained. The car did not have enough power to move, or even enough to release the electrically operated parking brake.

She concludes "In the matter of the Tesla Model S and its now infamous test drive, there is still plenty to argue about and few conclusions that are unassailable. Later that month, the Land Transport Authority released a statement stating that they and the VICOM Emission Test Laboratory will be working with Tesla engineers to review the test, [] and a Tesla statement indicated that the discussions were "positive" and that they were confident of a quick resolution.

In September and October , seven Delaware lawsuits were filed by Tesla stockholders seeking to block the proposed SolarCity acquisition. In October , the Court consolidated the actions and appointed a lead plaintiff.

The plaintiffs alleged, among other things, that the Tesla board of directors breached their fiduciary duties in approving the acquisition and that certain individuals would be unjustly enriched by the acquisition. On April 19, , Tesla owners filed a class-action lawsuit due to Tesla exaggerating the capabilities of its Autopilot 2 to consumers. On April 19, , Tesla factory workers filed unfair labor practice charges with the National Labor Relations Board , alleging that Tesla uses "illegal surveillance, coercion, intimidation and prevention of worker communications [ The literature pointed to working conditions, the company's confidentiality agreement and employee rights under the National Labor Relations Act.

The UAW's charges allege that Tesla illegally told employees that they could not pass out any literature unless it was approved by the company.

Tesla responded that other car makers don't offer such stock options to union workers. Employees describe working at Tesla as stressful and meaningful. Former and current Tesla employees publicly expressed concerns about worker treatment. Between and , ambulances went to Tesla's Fremont, California factory over times to provide emergency services to workers exhibiting symptoms including fainting, dizziness, abnormal breathing and chest pains resulting from the physically demanding tasks associated with their positions.

At the end of that period, Tesla Factory employed over 10, workers. Working conditions are in part a result of the company's ambitious production figures. Musk strongly defended Tesla's safety record and argued that the company had made significant improvement. Tesla's policies for dealing with injured employees were also criticized. In , workers alleged that Tesla's policies got in the way of workers reporting injuries. At Tesla, workers who reported injuries were moved to lighter work and given access to supplemental insurance benefits.

To protect their incomes, many workers choose to work during their recovery from injury, in some cases inciting further damage and pain.

In , Tesla added extra shifts and safety teams to improve conditions. According to the company, "the average amount of hours worked by production team members has dropped to about 42 hours per week, and the level of overtime decreased by more than 60 percent" after improvements were made. Our goal is to have as close to zero injuries as humanly possible and to become the safest factory in the auto industry. In April , CIR's Reveal published an investigation concluding that Tesla under-counted worker injuries to make its safety record appear better.

It included findings such as the factory floor not having have clearly marked pedestrian lanes and instead having lanes painted different shades of gray because Elon Musk does not like the color yellow. In addition, other safety signals such as signs and warning beeps were lowered in order to please Musk's esthetic preferences. The Mercury News in investigated the use of foreign construction workers to build Tesla's paint shop at Tesla Factory. A whistleblower federal lawsuit was filed, which was unsealed in the summer of The suit alleged that Tesla and other major automakers such as Mercedes-Benz , BMW and Volkswagen illegally used foreign construction workers to build their U.

Court documents and the journalistic investigation showed that at least foreign workers worked on the factory expansion, some of whom had questionable work visas, for as little as five dollars per hour. Certain Tesla vehicles equipped with its Ludicrous performance mode had limited power output, as discovered by some Tesla owners in The power limits were connected to how frequently the drivers used Launch Mode; if a driver used it too much, the car's power output was restricted to prevent excessive wear and tear on components.

Customers complained and the company removed the limiter. In May , it was reported that Tesla had for five [] or six [] years been using other people's copyrighted software unlawfully, specifically engaging in GPL violations.

The Software Freedom Conservancy reportedly alerted Tesla to the issue repeatedly, but only in did Tesla begin to remedy its non-compliance with the software's license terms. On June 20, , Tesla filed a civil lawsuit in Nevada against a former Tesla employee, who a few days before had been dismissed after allegedly confessing to hacking Tesla's Manufacturing Operating System and to transferring gigabytes of confidential, proprietary data to external, unknown entities.

In September , the U. Department of Justice began investigating Tesla based on a tweet sent out by Elon Musk. In the tweet, Musk stated that he was considering taking the company private, and that he had "funding secured" to complete the deal. DOJ investigators requested company documents in September related to Musk's announcement, and the company complied with the requests. Musk's announcement came as a surprise to shareholders, and consequently the company's stock price rose by almost 11 percent; 17 days later, Musk said the proposal was dead.

The volatile stock price movement resulted in multiple shareholder lawsuits. According to multiple sources, Musk will step down as chairman within 45 days and will be replaced by an independent chairman; he will remain the CEO of the company. On March 29, , Tesla issued a worldwide recall of , Model S cars built before April due to corrosion -susceptible power steering bolts that could fail and require the driver to use "increased force" to control the vehicle.

On October 1, , a Model S caught fire after the vehicle hit metal debris on a highway in Kent, Washington. Tesla confirmed the fire began in the battery pack and was caused by the "direct impact of a large metallic object to one of the 16 modules within the Model S battery pack. Tesla said that it would conduct its own investigation, [] and as a result of these incidents, announced its decision to extend its current vehicle warranty to cover fire damage.

On January 4, , a Tesla Model S in Norway caught fire while charging at one of Tesla's supercharger stations and was completely destroyed. No one was injured. On March 28, , NHTSA announced that it had closed the investigation into whether the Model S was prone to catch fire, after the automaker said it would provide more protection to its battery packs.

A Model S driver died in a collision with a tractor-trailer on May 7, , in Williston, Florida , while the vehicle was in autopilot mode. The driver is believed to be the first person to have died in a Tesla vehicle in autopilot mode. The cause has not been identified yet. Tesla said that the analysis is "severely flawed and not reflective of reality", however, Tesla failed to provide any contradictory numbers.

Tesla has been criticized for repeatedly overpromising and underdelivering. Delivery dates for new vehicles and new vehicle features slipped on the Roadster, the Model S and the Model X. Advanced technologies like the prospect of a large network of solar-powered supercharger stations first installed ; only two were solar-powered as of late also lagged projections. In early October , Musk had predicted that Model 3 production would be up to 5, units per week by December.

On September 24, , Musk revealed on Twitter that Tesla will be building its own car carriers as the company is facing challenges due to logistics. Tesla is running into an acute shortage of car carrier trailers leading to a delay in the delivery. In August , two researchers said they were able to take control of a Tesla Model S by hacking into the car's entertainment system.

They were able to compromise the automotive networking bus CAN bus when the vehicle's web browser was used while the vehicle was connected to a malicious Wi-Fi hotspot.

The vulnerability was disclosed to Tesla under their bug bounty program and patched within 10 days, before the exploit was made public. In January , security researchers informed Tesla that an Amazon Web Services account of theirs could be accessed directly from the Internet and that the account had been exploited for cryptocurrency mining.

Tesla reacted by securing the compromised system and by rewarding the security researchers financially via their bug bounty program and stated that the compromise did not violate customer privacy, nor vehicle safety or security. Tesla offers service at their service centers, or if a center is not available, mobile technicians can perform most inspections and repairs.

It is recommended to have any Tesla car inspected every 12, miles or once a year, whichever comes first. Tesla does not provide service manuals except in jurisdictions that required them to do so. At the June shareholder meeting, Elon Musk confirmed that Tesla will soon start to open its first body shops in the top ten U.

In June , Tesla made a "last-minute push near the end of the Albany legislative session to expand its sales force in New York. The dealers attacked the bill, arguing that it would hurt their business because Tesla does not sell through dealers. As of December [update] , the Tesla board of directors consists of: Musk that could put at risk their ability to exercise independent judgement. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
