    Could be inductive charging option. Wouldn't have to do specifically with being autonomous.

    I'm sure it will be available immediately after all our electricity is from fusion plants.

    I don't get it. If the SC stalls can't make use of it, how would next year's FSD, cross-country "summon" work? Or are they going back and modifying the stalls?

    I cant imagine a painted arrow would be used to help a robot find a charging port, it would all be based on something that can be seen after the bottom of the car becomes covered in dirt and road debris over time. There would have to be some sort of door that opens to reveal a clean port.

    Could also be for the robots that build the vehicle.
