    Passenger side, a little offset from the license plate of memory serves, if you have a 2016+ model, maybe a little older than that as well.

    So have we figured out the radar parts in HW3?

    Xpeng for example uses Fifth gen radars.

    Pre-FL dead center, there's a small indent. Facelift about ⅓ off the driver side.

    Does this mean that when my AP1 pre-facelift car got a radar replacement and the invoice states Front Radar, No heater (1057551-00-B) that this is the wrong one, even though the service rep checked and stated that "no, this is correct for a Gen 1 car" ? Should I complain?

    Thought this was an interesting paper/video:


    Doing pure radar based localization could be a pretty efficient option(kB/km) but I assume that Tesla intends to, at some point the future, use all sensors for their maps. If not to use for vision/control, at least to improve navigation and visualization. But at least the method is likely similar to how Tesla would train their localization algorithm.

    Hey guys
    want to know about pin configuration about Autopilot hardware 2.5 (Continental) part number:1108647-00-E.
    it has 7 pins.
    Does anyone have information about that?
    What does each pin do?
    i attach an image of it.

    I am currently working on a Toyota that uses the same ARS410 radar. Do you know how to interpret the CAN signals from the radar?

    To give you a better picture of what I'm trying to achieve, I am trying to use the radar in the car to check for obstacles in front of the car before performing a lane-change manoeuvre. So I need to be able to decipher what each part of the signal means (doppler velocity, range??).
