Tesla May Start Using a New Camera with FSD HW 4.0 Starting with Cybertruck.

Tesla currently uses three separate forward-facing cameras in a housing at the top of the windshield. This unit contains wide-angle, standard, and narrow view lenses with three separate CMOS sensors. Each sensor has a resolution of 1280x960 or about 1.2 megapixels.

However, according to a statement by Chris Zheng/Twitter, Tesla is planning to use the new Sony IMX490 automotive image sensor in its upcoming 4.0 hardware version, which has a number of advantages over the current ones.

The new sensors support a much higher resolution of 2896x1876, which is 5.4 megapixels. New sensors with more than four times the resolution of existing sensors, allow the system to more accurately detect objects around the vehicle. It will also provide a more detailed image, which improves accuracy in a wide variety of situations. The new sensor could allow Tesla to reduce the number of forward-facing cameras to two or even one.

Here are the new camera specs, according to Sony:
