Tesla Adds 2 2.0 Cameras

The Tesla Model 3 has been one of the most anticipated electric cars since the past year. CEO of Tesla, Elon Musk has promised us that we will see the first production vehicles coming out in early July with full scale in September. Just recently, he posted the first video of the Model 3 being the first release candidate to be produced from its factory in Fremont. With over 400,000 reservations, the vehicle is supposed to bring a huge boost to Tesla’s revenue and is supposed to take the automotive industry to the next level

The current Tesla fleet, Model S and X are most widely known for their autopilot or self-driving capabilities. In October 2016, Elon Musk took these capabilities to the next level by introducing Autopilot 2.0 which brings a total of  8 cameras to the vehicle opposed to the current 2. Although the hardware has been added to the vehicle, the software is slowly making its way throughout the current year. With the Model 3 coming out soon, it has been guaranteed that theses features will be present in the vehicle. But no images have been released of the “new” Model 3 ever since it’s unveiling last month by Elon Musk until yesterday. People driving around Tesla HQ yesterday spotted a black Model 3 speeding along the road. After following them, the Model 3 was found parked on the side of the road and the passenger managed to snap some quick photos while passing by. Immediately we see some changes. The ultrasonic sensors have been added, a slight configuration in front bumper angle and the addition of the Autopilot 2.0 cameras. But the most significant is the addition of another 2 cameras for the autopilot that are not present in the Model S or Model X. The 2 new cameras are located on the C Pillar of the vehicles which is above the door handles for the rear occupants. This new addition may not come completely as a surprise.

 

Last month, Elon Musk said that the Model 3 would be designed in the style to support a fully autonomous vehicle as also seen with no Heads-Up-Display in the vehicle which is where the driver sees all the essential information of the vehicle while driving such as fuel or battery level, speed and directions to a destination. Without this, the driver simply has a speedometer which is displayed in the upper left corner of the center console. With two additional camera’s to cover the vehicle, the car would have an extra set of eyes covering it which gives us more reliability in the vehicle when we do not have control.
