Elon Musk reportedly demanded cameras over radar in self-driving cars because human eyes don’t rely on radar

I think his purpose in doing this is to prioritize full self driving over partial self driving features.

“Humans drive with eyes and biological neural nets,” Musk said in October. “So [it] makes sense that cameras and silicon neural nets are [the] only way to achieve generalized solution to self-driving.”

Moreover, he’s reportedly implementing that philosophy at Tesla.

Musk has repeatedly instructed the company’s Autopilot team, which works on self-driving car tech, to ditch radar and use only cameras instead, the New York Times reported on Monday.
