 Remote access to Tesla’s in-vehicle camera? Find new features from code analysis

The Tesla car has a drive recorder function that allows you to take a 360-degree picture of the surroundings, as well as a sentry mode that uses it to prevent theft and mischief. In addition to that, it may be equipped with a new feature that allows you to check the camera image remotely even if you are not near the car.

Electrek, a tech site familiar with automotive news, reports that code hacker Green has found evidence of a new feature that allows Tesla software to watch live-streamed in-vehicle camera footage.

The details of this function are unknown at this time, but according to Mr. Green, the communication capacity will be about 30MB per minute. If you use it to check the video with a mobile app when you need it instead of watching it 24 hours a day, it seems that it will not be a problem even in a mobile communication environment.

It can be used, for example, to check the video remotely when there is a noise in the garage, or to check who is not hiding behind the car at night before returning to the car alone.

It’s unclear when it will be available, but Elon Musk has hinted at a holiday update, and it’s likely that it will be available at the same time.
