    Nice, think you might be one of the first people to get it!

    EDIT: Just woke my car up and no update notification :(

    I hadn’t heard of a stop light issue. Is this purely an FSD problem?

    Stopping at traffic lights are a new feature, only available in US, CAN, AUS, NZ currently. Some were hopeful we would get it in this version.

    Will probably coincide with a map update too.

    Potentially the last version before FSD (needed for traffic light stopping) price increase on 1 July. However we had meant to have one late last year but it never happened and only the US got it - will we get it? will we get a double catch-up whammy? If anyone on select (Model S and X) cars do not currently have autopilot in any shape or form (but I assume have the hardware), looks like some short term deals on autopilot and FSD.

    Am I the only one who doesn't like stop lights?

    Sorry I was being super lazy typing on my phone with the list above.

    Essentially if you read this (presumably american ) article we get everything APART from the "Stop light improvments"

    What’s in Tesla’s software update 2020.24.6

    It's so we can watch you on the Dark Web ... probably picking your nose if you're like the rest of us...

    Was hoping it was for eye / face tracking (ala SuperCruise) to reduce or eliminate the amount of contact required mags with the steering wheel. Boo. Darn.

    Nope. There’s a set of lights near me where if your first in the queue, the lights appear on screen with the appropriate colour as you draw near. But at the line, they’re too high for the camera to see them so all colours are grey and changes aren’t seen.
    Had a similar thing yesterday. Big junction, loads of lights, all seen but nearest set went grey when I got to the line.

    Same with me. In the US the lights are always over the junction hanging on wires, I don't remember seeing any on poles alongside the stop line.
    The design of the cameras is a real problem for the way traffic lights are positioned in virtually every country apart from the US and its clones.

    So it picks up and triggers off one set of lights, but can't switch to the set of lights you switch to when you're at the line?

    Might be a bit confusing for the poor thing when you have multiple sets of traffic lights alongside each other when used for right turn lanes.

    I may be cynical but it appears that the camera activation in the event of an accident is only to cover Tesla's back if someone crashes on autopilot/FSD. So they can prove that you were busy watching youtube on your phone while putting makeup on and trying to retrieve the bacon sandwich you just dropped down the side of the seat, rather than paying attention.
    If they said they were capturing data to enable a hands-off-wheel awareness system, I'd be turning it on as quick as I could.

    In my local setting, it’s just a two way street with the normal set of lights on either side of the road. A car length from the line it sees both sets properly. At the line it knows that they are there, but (I presume) can’t see the actual lights.

    Yep

    All too easy to be fooled into thinking what you see on dashcam is it.

    Thanks to @verygreen, we know Its not.

    Currently, we only see the bottom 3 views plus rear. The top 3 add lots of extra field of view. I believe that most of the time, AP is only using main (bottom middle). As pillar cameras are behind the driver, theoretically if a driver can see something, position wise, pillar camera will have a chance of seeing it too. I don't know what their field of view are, but probably better than a human eye. They just cant swivel their head.
