Recently, TESLARATI reported that the well-known Tesla hacker @greentheonly discovered in Autopilot’s code that the number of Semitruck cameras may only be 10. He also pointed out that the tenth additional camera is called “Right Repeater 2” and said that only one right camera is not enough because of the layout of the car’s central driving position. However, he also revealed that the new 10-camera layout will be based on the future HW 3.2.
Tesla has not announced how many cameras this Class 8 semi-trailer has. But according to Model 3 owner Erik J. Martin during a test ride in Semitruck, he found at least 26 cameras.
In this way, the final production version has more than half fewer cameras than the original test version!
