Each Tesla Model 3 is equipped with, among other things, a mysterious camera located just above the rearview mirror and points to the car's interior. According to yesterday's tweet by Elon Musk, they are "intended for robot axes". Electrek says it is a clear reference to Musik's intention to create a fleet of self-driving cabins.
A famous visionary responded to a post by a user who suggested these cameras could record passengers' singing performances. The latest Tesla software update includes a new Caraoke feature:

However, Music's response suggests that cameras were designed to monitor people traveling with the aforementioned taxis. Another way to use it: through the camera is to find out how an experienced driver just sits behind the wheel, which the car can then adapt to.
In April, Musk promised in April that Tesla's "autonomous robot axis" would be on the road next year – albeit only in the jurisdictions where the car manufacturer would obtain the necessary permits.
