Tesla Vision expands to Australia and New Zealand for camera-based Autopilot

Tesla has extended its camera-based Autopilot strategy, known as Tesla Vision, to two new territories, Australia and New Zealand.

In May 2021, Tesla began shipping Model 3 and Model Y vehicles equipped with Tesla Vision, the company’s camera-based autopilot feature. Tesla’s Autopilot and Full Self-Driving suites, which feature several active safety measures, are powered entirely by cameras and neural network computing. Tesla has always planned to, as Elon Musk said during the Q1 2021 earnings call:

“When your vision works, it works better than the best human because it’s like having eight cameras, it’s like having eyes in the back of your head, beside your head, and having three eyes apart. different focal lengths looking forward. That’s – and processing it at superhuman speed. There’s no doubt in my mind that with a pure vision solution, we can create a car that’s considerably safer than the person mean.

Tesla has revealed that it has now transitioned from Model 3 and Model Y vehicles which are being built from June 2022 for the Australian and New Zealand markets to its camera-based Tesla Vision.

“We are continuing to transition to Tesla Vision, our camera-based autopilot system. Model 3 and Model Y vehicles built from June 2022 for the Australian market now use our camera-based Tesla Vision, which leverages Tesla’s advanced camera suite and neural network processing to provide Autopilot and associated features,” the company said in a post, which was first captured by members of the r/TeslaMotors subreddit.

Tesla said it would initially limit one feature. Autoguiding speed will be limited to a maximum of 140 km/h, and the following distance will be slightly longer than normal. Tesla regularly introduced new features in a limited way to ensure maximum security. Tesla pledged to take the same precautions when rolling out Pure Vision in the United States, Mexico and Canada last year, and when rolling out to European and Middle Eastern markets earlier this year.

Tesla added the Model S and Model X to the Pure Vision lineup in February, but only in North America.
