This is old news. We have seen the same Model Y in 5 months ago.

They've been supposedly ground-truthing vision with LIDAR since last year. I've mostly passed MS and here's a MX from a few weeks ago..

Tesla has actually used lidar to obtain ground truth data since at least 2016:


Another potential use for test vehicles with lidar is sensor-supervised learning. This is something Karpathy has discussed. The lidar automatically labels a bunch of camera-derived data with the correct depths. That labelled data then becomes training data for NNs that use only camera input to estimate depth.
