    How is the computer architecture in the Tesla laid out? I know there are computers for most subsystems as well as the internment cluster computer + 17" touchscreen computer. What kind of interaction do the main 2 computers have with the individual subsystem computers?

    The two display interact with the ECUs via the gateway running RTOS.

    so they are not controlling anything directly, but more reading data to the display when necessary, and act as a link to the ecu for system updates.
