By all accounts, Tesla's system uses cameras only which means it will never be capable of fully autonomous driving. Reminds me of the HD ready t.v. I bought in 1997. It is capable of dislaying an HD picture, but's pretty crappy and it lacks all the proper inputs necessary to work with today's set top boxes. The best input it has is S-video - state of the art in the late 90's. The only reason I haven't gotten rid of it is that it weighs a ton and I am too lazy to move it.
Eight surround cameras provide 360 degrees of visibility around the car at up to 250 meters of range. Twelve updated ultrasonic sensors complement this vision, allowing for detection of both hard and soft objects at nearly twice the distance of the prior system. A forward-facing radar with enhanced processing provides additional data about the world on a redundant wavelength that is able to see through heavy rain, fog, dust and even the car ahead.
