Drive to Calibrate Cameras Tesla Model X
When using Autopilot features, the Model X must navigate with extreme precision. As a result, before some features (such as Traffic-Aware Cruise Control or Autosteer) may be used for the first time or after specific Service fixes, the cameras must self-calibrate. A progress indicator is shown on the instrument panel for your convenience.
Calibration usually takes 20-25 miles (32-40 km) to complete, however the distance depends on the route and ambient circumstances. Model X can calibrate faster when driving on a straight route with clearly visible lane lines. The Autopilot capabilities are ready to utilise once the calibration is finished. If your Model X has not completed the calibration process after driving 100 miles, contact Tesla (160 km).
Note: If you try to utilize a function that isn't available until the calibration procedure is finished, the feature will be disabled and a message will appear on the instrument panel.
Note: The calibration process must be repeated after having the cameras serviced by Tesla, and it may be also be required after a software update.
Note: The Tesla camera calibration is applicable to Model X vehicles built after approximately October 12, 2016.
