May 27, 2021—Telsa announced this week it would be moving from radar to using a camera-based system to operate its Autopilot features in its Model 3 and Model Y vehicles in the U.S. and Canada.

According to CNBC, Tesla had previously said it expected that “a vision-only system is ultimately all that is needed for full autonomy." Tesla CEO Elon Musk previewed the move in a March 12 tweet.

The change is effective this month. Tesla's Autopilot features include traffic-adjusted cruise control and automatic lane-keeping.
