    Since the new model S (2015) have autopilot HW and that include a front cam. I belive Tesla should implement the following.

    1. automatic recording of the video streem to a USB storage in the car
    2. make the video feed viewable on the infotainment screen.

    watch this video
    Mercedess autonomous driving on highway - YouTube

    where you at 1:39 see the video feed detecting difrent sorts of objects. (I belive this is also mobileye) - could be fun to see what the cam catches.
    also you may notice at 2:07 that the video feed are actually displayed on the mercedes infotainment screen.

    most importent is the recording though.

    Indications are that it is behind the rear view mirror at the top centre of the windshield. pictures seem to indicate that, and it is also the best possible location for it.

    Makes sense if Tesla is using the MobileEye technology, as that's where the MobileEye camera is located.
