Offer rear traffic alert warning of cross-traffic approaching when backing up.
The system used by other car makers requires two radars mounted in the sides of the rear bumper. When backing up, if it detects traffic closing in quickly, it alerts the driver. Parking sensors do not have enough range to implement this feature. Available on select Lexus models as a $500 option.
It’s possible Tesla’s side and rear cameras may provide enough information to offer a similar feature.
