What's the difference between Tesla Autopilot 1.0 and 2.0?
Tesla Autopilot 1.0
Autopilot 2.0 works with a suite of eight cameras, twelve ultrasonic sensors, and a forward-facing radar. Additionally, the components are controlled via a chip, which processes and analyzes what they "see".
Last October, Tesla announced that every new vehicle would come with this hardware suite, which is necessary for eventual Full Self-Driving capability. This same group of equipment makes the new Enhanced Autopilot features available in Tesla Autopilot 2.0. The automaker has been incrementally updating the system over-the-air in order to bring it to parity with Autopilot 1.0 (original Mobileye version).
We've seen and shared multiple videos with Tesla owners' impressions of the ins and out of Autopilot 2.0. This new video, created by Black Tesla and shared by Teslarati, takes it a step further. Now, you can see Tesla Autopilot 1.0 and 2.0 in action at the same time, on the same road, under the same conditions.

Hopefully, as new updates come out, Black Tesla will create more videos. While the video does the best job we've seen so far in comparing the two systems, there are still many unanswered questions.
