It will also use the car's camera system which is already trained to recognise red lights.CEO Elon Musk, as pointed out by website Electrek, had hinted at a similar, traffic light warning feature a few months ago.This new feature is available only for the US cars for now and will be supported by Autopilot and Full Self-Driving packages manufactured after 2016.
