Since Tesla cars are uniquely able to self-improve thanks to OTA updates, the company's customers sometimes request new features that they'd find helpful. It seems that the long sought-after vector-space bird's eye view will soon be coming to the company's cars.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk has confirmed that a new "vector-space bird's-eye view" is soon on its way to Tesla cars. According to Musk, this function will be included in the FSD package.
Vector-space bird’s eye view coming with FSD— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) October 3, 2020
Bird's-eye view is a popular feature in premium vehicles. Cameras placed around the vehicle transmit the image, which is ultimately combined into a single image. This image shows an overhead view of the car, which is why it is called bird's-eye view. This feature can be very useful to help you navigate in tight spaces such as while parking.
All Tesla vehicles are equipped with eight cameras that provide an excellent 360-degree view. However, the presence of bird's-eye view can help train neural networks to make FSD even more advanced.
