    I hate to start a new thread just for this but have we heard or seen anything from TM regarding what's being targeted for 7.2? We're in prime 7.2 beta testing time right now, seems strange everything has been so silent on this regard...

    My guess is that they have one overriding priority right now: Model 3 launch on Thursday.

    That's a PR event and should have nothing to do with the ongoing FW development of the operating fleet.

    Perhaps true if they're not demoing a real car. Otherwise, if past launch stories are any indications, there's likely to be software work right up to the deadline.

    +1. I guess we'll know soon. It would be nice to each the event and be given some good news for once.

    I believe that 7.2 will include updates to autopilot for red lights and stop signs. That's the word on the street that I've heard......

    I think these will be safety features more than autopilot features. For Stop signs, it will 'sense' a distance, and if you're about to blow through it, it'll chirp -- same for red lights. I don't think autopilot will be capable of navigating these intersections on its own.

    There's no reason why Autopilot couldn't automatically stop for stop signs and red lights, in addition to audible warnings when it detects you're going to blow through them.

    I don't think the user experience would be very good with current hardware, because it has a viewing angle limited to about 50 degrees. Imagine driving with blinders on. It might warn you if it sees one — but it couldn't warn you about the ones it doesn't see, and it could miss quite a few. The next generation should be more capable.

    Isn't the Mobileye camera not monochromatic only?

    Indeed, most computer vision systems and driver assistance cameras are monochrome. However, they can still recognize a stop sign and know which light is red by position. I'm sure it will be big marketing thing when someone puts color driver assistance cameras in a car, whether or not it is a technical improvement.

    Let's not assume it's in 7.2. "Coming soon", in Elon terms, can mean v7.2, v7.3, v7.5, or v8.

    Regardless, I think we're overdue for a nice software update here...

    And then after that maybe they could consider actually making the satnav system work properly?
