Tesla Full Self Driving FSD Beta First Look

 

Today, Tesla started to rollout the Full Self Driving (FSD) Beta version to very limited owners who joined the Early Access Program (EAP). Here's what we know so far.

Here is the release notes of FSD Beta:

Full Self-Driving is in early limited access Beta and must be used with additional caution. It may do the wrong thing at the worst time, so you must always keep your hands on the wheel and pay extra attention to the road. Do not become complacent.

When Full Self-Driving is enabled your vehicle will make lane changes off highway, select forks to follow your navigation route, navigate around other vehicles and objects, and make left and right turns. Use Full Self-Driving in limited Beta only if you will pay constant attention to the road, and be prepared to act immediately, especially around blind corners, crossing intersections, and in narrow driving situations.  

Also, here is additional FSD info from the Tesla Q3 2020 Earnings Report: 

“Autopilot & Full Self Driving (FSD): Our Autopilot team has been focused on a fundamental architectural rewrite of our neural networks and control algorithms. This rewrite will allow the remaining driving features to be released. In October, we sent the first FSD software update enabled by the rewrite to a limited number of Early Access Program users City Streets. As we continue to collect data over time, the system will become more robust.”
