    Watch a new self-driving car using a similar camera-based approach as Tesla

    Tesla has so far been mostly alone in the autonomous driving world trying to achieve fully self-driving capability using a camera-based system. That’s because almost all other company developing self-driving technology are focusing on lidar sensors.

    It’s about to change. A new startup in the field is now trying a similar albeit even more radical approach to self-driving with a camera-only system. more…

    I am all for more systems that cost less, but hope it's marketed as only as good as the visibility is. The great thing about the radar/sonar/lidar sensor systems is the ability to see what the driver and cameras) can't.

    I drive in this half the year (if I were being honest with myself, it's really more like ¾ of the year, but, eh...) and like that the sensors can see what your eye can not in poor conditions.

    Tesla is a camera, radar and ultrasonic based system. Not just a camera based system. The headline is very misleading. Although the article does clarify this point.

    Basing an autopilot on just cameras is a recipe for disaster.

    I don't think Electrek's strong suit is headline writing.
