Don’t get your hopes up, Tesla probably isn’t working on LiDAR for Autopilot

Tesla, or rather the company’s CEO Elon Musk, isn’t really a fan of LiDAR sensors when it comes to autonomous vehicles. So why has a Model S test mule recently been spotted with a LiDAR-based sensor arrangement? Yesterday, Electrek reader Matt Crowley shared some snaps with the EV magazine of a Tesla Model S, that had a roof-mounted rig with a bunch of non-standard Tesla sensors on it — including what looks like LiDAR.

The online retailer is exploring chips exclusive to Blink that could lower production costs and lengthen the battery life of other gadg...
