The next major Tesla software update for cars is about to be released, and Elon Musk has already made it clear that the new version will bring a lot of news. Without going into great detail, we continue to try to find out exactly what will make this update so interesting.
After several hypotheses have emerged over the past few weeks, the renowned leaker @greentheonly revealed that one of the great news will be related to “Sentry Mode”.
Over the years, Tesla has continuously developed new ways to maximize the usefulness of the various cameras equipped on the outside of its cars. In a first phase, they were used with dashcams, later evolving into what we know today as “Sentry Mode”, an advanced security system that has already helped to identify dozens of vandals.
Tesla will turn its cars into mobile surveillance cameras
In an initial phase, the images captured by the Tesla cameras and, saved on the respective external disk, could be seen only on a computer. At the beginning of the year, one of the updates implemented a new feature on the on-board computer that allowed gaining access to these images.
Now, it seems that with the new software update, Elon Musk will finally let his users access live streams from Tesla cameras from his mobile application.
Green, confirmed that the remote control of the cameras is guaranteed to be in development, being proven by several lines of code in the current Tesla software. However, it has not yet been able to give assurances that it will be present in the next update.
For now, there is still no clear idea of the practical uses of this new feature, but certainly when it is officially presented, Tesla will give some ideas on how it can help its users.
