Tesla is expected to release a new Autopilot/Full Self-Driving (FSD) hardware suite soon, and more details have recently leaked. According to regulatory documents from China, the new hardware, known as Autopilot HW 4.0, will include:
The new hardware, referred to as Autopilot HW 4.0, is expected to feature several updates, including:
- The front-facing camera hub will be updated with two higher-resolution cameras instead of 3 lower-resolution ones
- A new fan or heating system will be added to help keep the camera clear
- A camera will be added to the B pillars
- The Autopilot HW 4.0 front camera will be reduced to two Cz of the significant increase in both pixel density and field of view
There is no mention of any camera being added to the sensor suite, throwing some cold water on the prospect of adding headlight/bumper cameras seen on the Model 3 prototype.
Regulatory documents coming out of China, where Tesla often implements production changes first, reveal these details. However, it's important to note that these are still rumors and the company has not officially confirmed the updates.
