A few days ago, Tesla CEO Elon Musk tweeted a preview of the ‘holiday update’ (2019.40.50) featuring a sneak preview of Full Self Driving, and today it has begun to push it to various car models as promised. One of the most interesting new features is the so-called ‘Camp Mode.’
The feature allows Tesla’s vehicles to maintain air circulation, control the temperature and internal lights to meet the needs of camping. In addition, during use, users can naturally play music, or use the car’s own battery to power electronics devices for 48 hours or more while parked.
As for the most eye-catching “Full Self-Driving” preview in Musk’s previous tweets, the final result is quite limited. Tesla originally only improved sign reading capabilities. Under this feature, Tesla writes, “The driving visualization can now display additional objects which include stoplights, stop signs and select road marking.”
At the same time, they now also provide the option to display text messages in card form or let the system read them out by voice. In addition, the driver can also reply by voice. In fact, the entire voice command scheme is now easier.
The automaker wrote about “Camp Mode” in the release notes: “Your car can now maintain airflow, temperature, interior lighting, as well as play music, and power devices when Camp Mode is enabled. To enable Camp Mode, tap the fan icon at the bottom of the touchscreen and set ‘Keep Climate On’ to ‘CAMP’ while your car is in PARK.”
If such features arrive in the production version of the all-electric Cybertruck, they will add to the versatility and adaptability of the vehicle as Tesla promised when it was unveiled. It can also extend the attractiveness of the Cybertruck and attract the market in search of vehicles they can use for adventure and enjoy the outdoors lifestyle.
