Can every Tesla have Full Self-Driving?

All Tesla cars have autopilot, Tesla can achieve autopilot, Tesla's autopilot technology is actually L2 level autopilot. Autopilot is the soul configuration of Tesla, but Tesla has not achieved full self-driving, and the autopilot system it is equipped with is precisely a driving assistance system.
The first press conference only showed the appearance of the Model 3 and did not reveal the interior information and related functions.
Tesla's new product launch originally scheduled for October 17 was postponed to the 19th. Model 3 fans thought they could see a more realistic Model 3, but they got a more dreamy promise - starting today, all models produced by Tesla will be equipped with hardware with full self-driving capabilities.
Don't care whether the hardware system is "hard or not", let's enjoy the video of Tesla's fully automatic driving test first.
For the classification of autonomous driving, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) have made detailed regulations.
From the several details shown in the video, it can be seen that Tesla can indeed achieve fully autonomous driving, and it is very intelligent.
The test road was selected on a completely open road, and the driver did not intervene during the whole process. When approaching the intersection, the vehicle can recognize the traffic lights, which is a function that does not exist in the current automatic assisted driving.
The driver, or more accurately, the passenger, gets off the vehicle directly after arriving at the destination, and then the car will automatically find a parking space.
And the vehicle is looking for a parking space that can actually be parked. It can be seen from the video that when the vehicle passes a parking space with a no-parking line drawn, the vehicle does not park, but looks for the next parking space.
The hardware equipment supporting such a cool fully automatic driving function is the focus of this conference. The system includes 8 cameras, covering a 360-degree visual range, and the monitoring distance of the surrounding environment can reach up to 250m. In addition, the vehicle is equipped with 12 ultrasonic sensors that complete the vision system, detecting and sensing hard and soft objects at nearly twice the distance of the previous generation system. The enhanced front-facing radar provides richer surrounding data through redundant wavelengths that can travel through heavy rain, fog, dust, and even the vehicle ahead. To make better use of this data, the vehicle is equipped with a processor that is 40 times faster than the previous generation.
