Model S and X could join its fleet of autonomous robot taxis

According to the hacker greentheonly, Tesla is preparing to add a camera in the interior rearview mirror of the Model S and Model X, like the Model 3 and Model Y.

This hardware upgrade could therefore unify the four main vehicles of the brand that would make up the said fleet: thanks to this camera, the automobile will thus be able to monitor passengers, calculates Teslascope. The Model X and Model Y would then obviously be part of the small papers of the group.

Other features pending

Other less spooky uses should also point the tip of their nose. Video conferencing, for example, was mentioned by Elon Musk himself. The sensor could also be used to monitor the driver’s attention: if the system notices a decrease in vigilance, an alert could appear to prevent it.
