While Musk confirmed the rollout of FSD’s limited beta, he set some realistic expectations for the electric car community. The CEO said that this limited beta would be rolled out in an “extremely slow and cautious” manner, thereby maximizing security. This bodes well for Tesla’s public full self-driving rollout, as it shows that the company is taking a very conservative approach regarding the release of its autonomous driving features.
Earlier this month, Tesla’s CEO gave the public some information tonight about the FSD beta. He said Tesla’s new FSD build would be “capable of zero-interference drives”.
Asked if the new FSD update would give Tesla the ability to drive and be called on state lines, Musk said. He suggested that Teslas would eventually be able to cross state borders with the help of the company’s Metal Gear snake autocoupler. With this, Musk revived the conversation about Tesla’s snake charger.
Elon Musk has been diligently providing updates on the release of Tesla’s next major full self-driving update for some time. This past September, Tesla’s CEO predicted that the next FSD update would happen in a month.
Tesla originally planned to release a feature-complete version of the FSD update in late 2019, but was unsuccessful. This time, Musk and Tesla were scheduled to deliver the next FSD update on time.
Prior to this October, he announced that Tesla would release its limited FSD beta on Tuesday 20 October. The recent announcement confirms that Tesla will meet that goal.
The ruling is still on Tesla’s limited FSD beta. There will probably be more information about the FSD beta within a few hours and days of its release. For now, it is clear that Tesla has tried its best to deliver FSD beta on time.
In July 2020, Musk said that Autopilot’s rewrite, which led to Tesla’s limited FSD beta, was going well. He mentioned that Tesla’s 3D labeling techniques were again fundamentally improved, which is essential for full self-driving to function properly.
Based on Elon Musk’s descriptions of Tesla’s limited FSD beta, the company has acquired the full feature of FSD after Autopilot was rewritten. If beta tests are successful, Musk may eventually be able to bring Tesla’s feature-full FSD to the public by the end of the year, bringing the company’s vehicles closer to competitors that activate Level 5 autonomy such as Waymo and Cruise Are following closely.
