Tesla is only one of the three autonomous strategies
The camera-based approach of Tesla is less accurate than lidar sensors, but at the same time,, it does not rely on HD maps, making it easier to scale. In the same logic, Waymo will take some time to scale, as it is based on lidar and HD mapping. The least scalable system though, is ones like Baidu's Apollo,: building out infrastructure sensors to help vehicles identify road signs and traffic.
