Speed Assist and Lane Departure Warning

The manual that is now displayed in my car with 6.0 had some surprises that I have not seen announced. I'm a bit behind on the forums (life's been busy) so they may have already been posted about. In case not...

Whoa - nice find! Shows you how often people look at the instruction manual :) Seems like these features just require some kind of camera mounted behind the rear view mirror. I wonder how hard it would be to retrofit that into older cars. Doesn't sound as invasive as a parking sensor retrofit.

Sorry about the bad contrast in the middle of picture 2. The white glow IRL is a rendering of a 65mph speed limit sign.

Maybe we'll finally see a hardware upgrade?!? You know, that thing that we all payed for in our service plans, but Tesla never delivered on?

Um, I think a vibrating steering wheel might be pretty invasive!

Interesting. Let the speculation begin!
Sounds like the basic sensor hardware is MobileEye (some have done installs in the MS) *but* the data is displayed on the driver display. Wow, this is a nice step toward driver assist. Fingers cross that this COULD actually be a reasonably priced upgrade to existing cars.

Hmmm, if this was included in the 6.0 manual then maybe we'll hear something from Tesla soon. #fingerscrossed

Knowing Tesla, it's more likely to be an extraordinarily unreasonably-priced upgrade. See parking sensors.

The parking sensor upgrade is expensive because it requires replacing the front and rear bumpers which is expensive. In this case the most you might have to replace is the rear view mirror if it's really just a camera assuming it uses the existing wiring. Lots of assumptions, but it's within the realm of possibility that this could be a reasonably priced upgrade.

Based on what i have seen on other cars, I think this would require a windshield replacement. On the Hyundai genesis, the windshield has the mounts for the camera and a clear area the camera mounts in.
