Tesla-branded models will receive 5G modem and hotspot mode.

Tesla’s electric cars have always been different from the rest in that they allowed their owners to connect to the Internet. So, at first it was about 3G, and then the engineers equipped the on-board equipment with 4G LTE networks.

As a result, this made it possible not only to improve the comfort of the driver and passengers but also to significantly improve the feedback from the car. Recall that in 2017, the company launched a video collection program. According to the actualnews.org portal, it is known that the internal camera in the car, with the owner’s approval, filmed the car and people while observing their behavior.

All this allowed the developers to obtain important information, which later played a large role in the creation of the unmanned technology algorithm. Based on this data, the developers have been able to make significant progress in the development of the autonomous driving function. While recently researching a new update, a hacker was able to spot mention of possible 5G network support.

In addition, on the basis of Cypress CYW89359, a combined application of Wi-Fi 802.11ac and a new version of Bluetooth is implemented. Also, the hacker was able to find in the software update and part of the code, which indicates that not only a new modem will be installed in Tesla electric cars. So, in the future, the access point mode will appear, as evidenced by the mention of additional monitoring of bandwidth use.
