Elon Musk Clarifies About The Camera Within Model 3

Elon Musk (Tesla CEO) has verified that a camera situated above the rear-view mirror of Model 3 is present when the vehicle will ultimately be capable of working as a self-directed taxi. “It is there for when we begin vying with Lyft or Uber,” the CEO claimed to the media when somebody lifted privacy worries about the camera. “In case somebody messes up your vehicle, you can verify the video.” It might also increase the vehicle’s Sentry Mode to track thieves and pets.

Musk first stated about his plan for Tesla vehicles to become a self-directed ride-sharing service earlier in 2016 when he launched the firm’s “Master Plan, Part Deux.” Musk claimed that he aims to let Tesla users to make additional cash from their vehicles by renting them out as self-directed ride-sharing cars. The outcome, he expects, is to “dramatically” reduce the vehicle’s price of ownership “to the extent where almost anybody can have a Tesla.”

In a follow-up response, Musk verified that the hardware to let a car to be given out for rent is already available in vehicles that the firm is making now and that it’s “only a matter of concluding the software & going via regulatory acceptance.” In May 2018, the CEO assumed that the feature, which will be a mix of “AirBnB, Uber, and Lyft,” will be ready by the end of this year.

On a related note, in a Manhattan courtroom earlier, Musk sat stoically with hands clutched in front of him, as a federal judge mulled over whether to hold him in violation of court. The proximate reason was a post that Musk published in February this year that the SEC argues breached the terms of their agreement. And when the judge eventually punted on the verdict, ordering the SEC and his lawyers to work out their arguments and come back in 2 Weeks with a solution, he appeared to be relieved.
