    Looking at the Model 3 fog lamps shown here, a question comes to mind.

    Elon says 'passive optical' is enough at a TED talk. That means active is on the table... Are those fog lights looking for a heat signature from an ICE car, and sending a signature for other cars to see?

    Both lamps have other things going on, maybe directional columns that feed sensors directionally specific information with no ground bounce, etc?
