Tesla Autopilot 1.0 Compared To 2.0 – Video

What’s the difference between Tesla Autopilot 1.0 and 2.0?

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.

Quite a decent comparison! Maybe Bjorn could also do a similar one?

However – no points on this video showing where AP drops out, comparing what it does, the exit warning when the system relinquished control to the driver, or the Exit AP lead time duration. For example, from start of warning until you are on your own: how long on each version, under a sampling group of differing situations?

Probably needs more twisting roads to push this factor a bit more! These shown seem to have smooth and gradual curves!

Also not observed, when cars don’t see your Tesla, and converge on your blind spot, moving into your lane, as to what the Avoidance control that AP 1 vs 2 do?

Obviously, more study needed!

I recently was able to compare both on the same route, and can confirm that AP1 is still a lot better. There is no doubt that AP2.0/2.5 will eventually catch up and advance, but right now I would not trust it the same way I trust our AP1!

What an unfortunate naming for EAP – nothing “enhanced” about it in the year since it was released.

Woah AP1 is better than AP2? Thats not what Tesla was promising..

FWIW, they all do a good job in stop & go. We have two AP1 cars. Last week, I confirmed the “updated” car now speed limits down to 30mph, where some side roads have that limit. Speed of traffic is often 40, so I wouldn’t any longer use AP in that car. Back to my own (ver 14.23), and I have flexibility again. So, I reject Tesla’s “update” every day.

Enhanced Autopilot uses 4 cameras. Only full self driving uses all 8 cameras. But based on this review, it is doubtful EAP even uses the 4 cameras as it should then be able to see traffic all around. AP2 is improving all the time, but the progress is much slower than originally indicated. Still, I can’t think of any other car that is continually improving.

Thanks for this video, but I question your analysis of the relative perception of the two systems.
Is it possible that AP2 is actually “seeing” all of the cars in adjacent lanes, but that Tesla made a UI decision to simplify the display and and only represent the one or two cars in the center lane? I believe that is the case because I’ve seen another video where somebody hacked into the bus and showed a much more richly detailed version that included many cars in adjacent lanes.
