    Hi All

    I stumbled on this video on Youtube... I don't think it has been posted here before.

    Obviously this is a modified Model S, but hopefully this is the way things are headed.

    I expect some of the hardware that was required for this functionality was already in the Tesla and then Bosch added extra sensors.

    This video may also be of interest, showing the install of the hardware they used but gives no specifics:

    Looked into this. It seems Bosch bought two Tesla's WITHOUT sensors. Just the older S85's. They did this to test their own autopilot hardware, since the Tesla has so much room for equipment. It doesn't seem much better hardware wise than what Tesla has implemented, nor does it seem ahead of what Tesla has in "Beta testing".
