Tesla planning to add an animal recognition feature in the future?
A man from Texas asked Elon Musk on Twitter if Tesla software could better recognise horses in the drive-through at the Whataburger.
Elon Musk responded, ” The car knows that something is there, just doesn’t know that they’re horses yet, but it will. Dogs, cats and many other animals will also be recognized.”

Tesla’s vehicles can recognize and respond to traffic lights and stop signs thanks to a software update. The feature, called Traffic Light and Stop Sign Control, is designed to allow the vehicles to slow down at intersections.
Tesla’s Autosteer feature slows vehicles to a stop when using “traffic-aware cruise control” or “Autosteer”. The vehicle will slow for all detected traffic lights, including green, blinking yellow and off-white lights. As the vehicle approaches an intersection, a notification will indicate the intention to slow down.
