First look at Tesla’s Self-Driving Technology

When Tesla’s Elon Musk announced a few days ago the hardware kit for autonomous driving it seemed far away. But now the well-known blog Electrec published first pictures of a Tesla fully equipped with the hardware kit.

Eight cameras in total are integrated into the car structure without the roof or side-mounts that are known from other manufacturers. The cameras are also equipped with heating elements to prevent freezing during snow and ice weather. This vehicle appears to be one of the production vehicles, when Musk mentioned that the cars will be equipped with the kit ‘immediately.’

Now that the hardware kit is installed, the focus will be on the software to really make the cars self-driving. A first update of the Autopilot-software is to be expected in December.
