Elon Musk announced that Tesla owners who purchased the Driving Fully Autonomous (Full Self Driving) package and have Autopilot 2.0 will need to update their cameras to access the beta version.
For several weeks now, public testing has begun for Tesla's fully autonomous driving system, also known as Full Self Driving (FSD). Elon Musk stressed that access to FSD beta versions will be guaranteed for the brand's electric vehicles produced after 2016, thanks to simple software updates. However, the automaker has refurbished these vehicles several times since this announcement, including a new $ 2,500 on-board computer released in 2018.
Elon Musk just announced on Twitter that drivers who meet the two conditions mentioned above will also have to "upgrade their cameras." He adds that "the first production cars will require camera upgrades as well as an FSD computer (all included in the price)." Despite this statement, there are questions that still remain unanswered. Indeed, the Tesla CEO did not specify which cameras will be affected by this update or the date of the latter. Elon Musk also did not specify whether he meant a software update or whether car owners will have to replace cameras with new ones.
