Until now, those who wanted access to Tesla’s fully autonomous driving system needed two things. Buying it and having a high safety score. Otherwise it wouldn’t even be activated. Now that requirement is over and so everyone can activate Tesla’s autonomous driving system.
Tesla’s driving system is available to everyone!
Although it is still a beta version, everyone can try it out. However, there is an issue. It’s just that the driver needs to remain vigilant and ready to take control at any time.
Since the responsibility rests with the driver and not Tesla’s system, it is still considered a level two driver assistance system. This despite its name. It’s been something of a “two steps forward, one step back” program, as some updates have seen regressions in terms of drivability.
Tesla has been frequently releasing new software updates for the FSD Beta program. This is to improve performance with the aim of driving the vehicles to become safer than human drivers.
Over the past six months, there have been more than 100,000 Tesla owners in the program, but CEO Elon Musk said the FSD Beta would be available to all owners who purchased it in North America by the end of the year.
This larger release is part of the FSD Beta v11 update, which combines software that makes city driving possible with motorway driving. As usually happens, this update is coming in a phased manner. So it may still take a few weeks to reach all users.
It now remains to be seen if everything will go well or if someone will fall asleep at the wheel.
