    An interesting tweet just came thru from Elon that could have a much cheaper option to work with than lidar

    Working on using existing Tesla radar by itself (decoupled from camera) w temporal smoothing to create a coarse point cloud, like lidar

    I like how they're thinking "outside the box" with their existing hardware implementation to keep improving the system until version 2 or whatever is ready for production.
