The Tesla Model 3 and Model Y electric cars from the factory are equipped with a special camera in the cabin, which is installed just above the rearview mirror. This camera was turned off for a long time, the company only noted that it will be used in the future. Earlier this year, Elon Musk said that the camera will be used to prevent vandalism in cars when electric cars will operate in the autonomous taxi network.
After some time, Tesla also began collecting images and small video clips from cameras for research purposes with the permission of the drivers:
“You can help Tesla continue to develop safer vehicles by sharing camera data from your vehicle. This update will enable the integrated camera above the rearview mirror. If enabled, Tesla will automatically take pictures and short video clips just before collisions or dangerous situations to help engineers develop and improve safety features. As usual, you can configure your data usage settings in Controls> Safety & Security> Data Sharing> Camera Analytics. “
Hacker with nickname green, who often finds new features in Tesla’s software, found a list of events that the driver’s camera is trying to track:

Based on this information, it is possible that the camera will soon be able to analyze the driver’s behavior and warn him if it is found that he is distracted from the road a lot, especially when the autopilot is on. By the way, some other manufacturers (for example, General Motors and its Supercruise systems) use a cabin camera to ensure that the car is convinced that the driver is looking at the road.
