I have watch the video so many times. It is so cool. But I have a question for you all to weight in on.
First AP2 has 8 cameras. This video is only utilizes 3. And it is not only 3 cameras that I am curious about. It is the 3 specific camera that I have question on. There are 3 cameras on the back of the rear view mirror, it only uses the medium range came, why not the other 2 too? makes sense, right? Then why use the 2 right and left rearward cameras? Wouldn't it make sense to use the 2 forward cameras (on the B-pillars) instead of the rearward facing cameras (on the Tesla badges)? Keep in mind that through out the video, the car is only driving forward. Parallel parking toward the end is using mostly ultrasonic sensors.
or maybe it does use all 8 cameras but this video only shows us 3 views? Of course, I limit the discussion on cameras only, not talking about radar and sonic sensors.
