Pittsburgh area testing of Tesla's newest Autopilot has the world watching.
The current Autopilot camera is in its normal place. Below it is a platform bracket of some kind though it's impossible to see if anything it on top of it. Clearly visible to the passenger's side, in front of the sun visor, is a silver camera lens. On the driver's side there is a suction cup mount with a dual-lens camera of some kind-- it looks like a pair of small binoculars. Slung under the bracket is a very large centered lens that looks a lot like a police car's dashcam. Finally, on the driver's side of the large lens is a smaller unit that looks like it's facing to the side of the road. None of those additional cameras are part of the current Autopilot sensor suite for either the S or the X.
So it could "just" be Autopilot 2.0, but who know when it would be in production, so do you decide to buy now? Or maybe "coming soon" is just a few months' wait from now?
Or it could be something much, much more... It could be "Part 2" of the Model 3 reveal.
We're deep in speculation already, so what do you think we're looking at?
