Tesla’s Model 3 May Already Be Set Up for Autonomous Driving

Driver-Facing Cameras

On August 1, Jason Hughes, Twitter user @wk057 and , asked the internet if anyone else noticed that Model 3s appear to be equipped with driver-facing cameras. He then confirmed with sources that it’s a camera.

Later in the day, Electrek reported on the camera, after confirming with Tesla that the camera is there but inactive, and will only go active after future software updates. They also reported that the camera is not only focused on the driver but on the cabin as a whole. They speculate that this feature could become useful for Tesla’s future (hopeful) ride-sharing network. It could also prove to be a valuable safety feature, depending on how it is implemented. But, of course, there still exists the privacy issue of having cameras connected to a larger network situated inside of your private property staring right at you.
