I think the big point of this kind of cars and to bring out more features to the public (Car Distance control, Speed limit detection, Drive recording, driver sleep detection, laser interceptor, radar warning/interceptor system, lane stay system, precrash warning – automatic breaking systems, dvb-T TV ….) its very imported to bring out a SDK for new Apps and Hardware. Then you have the community on the business side too, the Android and iOS for a working community.
The Hardware itself should be a lot of connectors with a standard interface. For example 12Volt Power + CAN (or another) Bus. This connector must be a IP68 one.
After Tesla release this kind of connections there should be a rule, that every third party module must have input and output connectors otherwise it will not certified by Tesla.
The Apps and Hardware modules can be developed by 2nd part companies and sell directly or via Tesla AppStore in the Car. So the Installation can be very easy and you have after a short time a lot of new features. Every App must be verified by Tesla for work without problems.
If you see the Featurelist of German Cars, that’s endless and a small company like Tesla cannot develop every feature by itself.
What do you think?
