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.

      Only you can protect your family or yourself from defective or noncompliant vehicles or equipment that could pose a threat to your safety.
      Hundreds of injuries have been reported, and 16 people have been killed in the U.S. by defective air bags that are part of the largest and most complex vehicle recalls in U.S. history—affecting tens of millions of vehicles from 19 automakers. Getting these unsafe vehicles repaired is integral to improving safety and saving lives. The U.S. Department of Transportation, National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is urging vehicle owners to take a few simple steps to protect themselves and others from this urgent threat to safety. Learning how to check for recalls is the first important step, and the next is knowing how to get your recall fixed for FREE.
      What is a vehicle recall?
      A vehicle safety recall is just that—bringing an unsafe vehicle to a dealership to resolve a safety problem when a manufacturer or NHTSA determines that a vehicle or piece of equipment has a safety-related defect or does not comply with federal standards. Manufacturers are required to fix the problem by repairing it, replacing it, offering a refund, or in rare cases, repurchasing the vehicle. In 2019 alone, there were over 38 million vehicles recalled.
      Check for recalls
      If your vehicle is currently under recall, you should receive a notice in the mail from your vehicle’s manufacturer. If you’re worried about missing a notice, you can also stay up to date on recalls by signing up for notification emails.
      You don’t need to wait for a notification to find out if your vehicle is under recall. Visit https://www.NHTSA.gov/recalls and enter your VIN to see if your vehicle is under recall. You can also use NHTSA’s website to check on vehicle-related products, such as car seats, tires or equipment.
      Not sure where your VIN is? Look on the lower left of your vehicle’s windshield. It is 17 characters long. Your VIN is also located on your vehicle registration card, and may be shown on your insurance card too.
      Get the repair (for FREE!)
      If your vehicle is under recall, follow any interim safety guidance provided by the manufacturer and contact your local dealership to get the FREE recall repair.
      Report problems for investigation
      If you think your vehicle or equipment could have a safety defect, reporting it to NHTSA is important. If the agency receives similar reports from a number of people about the same product, this could indicate that a safety-related defect exists that would warrant an investigation. You can report any suspected safety defects to NHTSA one of two easy ways: by visiting www.NHTSA.gov/recalls, or by calling NHTSA’s vehicle safety hotline (888-327-4236 or 800-424-9393 toll-free from anywhere in the United States, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands).
      Vehicle owner reports fuel NHTSA’s work, and that’s why we’re committed to sharing more information with you about how to report recalls. NHTSA recommends checking your VIN twice a year to see if your vehicle is under any safety recall: when you set your clocks forward in the spring and when you set them back in the fall. Stay in touch with NHTSA and keep an eye on your mailbox for direct alerts. And if your vehicle is under recall, get it repaired for FREE immediately. With safer drivers and safer cars, we’ll have safer roads—and your efforts can help save lives.
