Tesla will be equipped with Sentinel Mode to monitor vehicle surroundings at 360 degrees.

Recommended Posts

Tesla Chief Executive Elon Musk said Tesla was working to upgrade its Tesla Cam Driving Recorder, equipped with a "Sentinel Mode" to achieve 360 degree monitoring, and that the Driving Recorder would soon be on the market. Later last year, Tesla launched a traffic recorder with wireless update function, and the recorder used the camera of its automatic driving system Autopilot.

In the first edition of the driving recorder equipped with this function, Tesla owners need a USB flash drive with "as much available storage space as possible" and need to format it into FAT32 file system. The driver needs to manually create a folder called "TeslaCam" and insert it into one of the front-end USB ports. Once inserted, the vehicle will identify the status bar at the top of the car and the touch screen will display the tachograph function icon.

At this time, the recorder will automatically start recording, the owner can control the recorder by pressing the icon. When the function is in use, before the first recording video will cover the old one hour. If at the time of recording click on the tachograph icon, the driver can be archived for the last ten minutes of video, the video will be saved with time stamp, will not be covered.

But the traffic recorder still has limitations. The driver's vision is limited to Autopilot prior to the camera. Subsequently, CEO Mask said, the future version of the tachograph use more automatic driving camera, and increase the parking mode.

Now, Mask in order to realize the 360 degree monitoring of vehicles, the traffic recorder equipped with sentinel mode". But musk also pointed out that only with the "enhanced autopilot" suite will apply new vehicle driving recorder. The first edition of the TeslaCam release notes, Tesla said the new function is only applicable to 2.5 vehicles equipped with Autopilot hardware.

Recently, Tesla Motors suffered a series of breaking in the event, the new function may lead to potential spoilers and thieves know crime will be recorded, so as to reduce such incidents.
