Tesla FSD Beta V11 will be released by the end of August, hopes Elon Musk. At the moment, the company is focused on solving specific problems that have arisen in the current version.
According to Elon Musk's earlier statements, FSD Beta is considered not so good, because it still uses a separate stack for city streets and traffic. Moving to a single FSD stack requires a huge amount of neural network training, which is what the Tesla team and beta testers are currently doing. According to the head of the company, V11 will have a single software stack that will combine city and highway, as well as many other architectural upgrades. To achieve this goal, FSD Beta has to make a few more important changes.
On the way to V11, the company made a number of architectural improvements that allowed the car to move more smoothly, especially when making difficult, unprotected left turns and overtaking maneuvers. At the moment, Tesla is particularly focused on a specific complex left turn that one of the beta testers was having trouble with. Today, Musk announced that next week there will be a release of V10.13, which should solve this problem.
He also revealed that Beta V11, as he hopes, is to be released at the end of August, which he says “just amounts to incorporating highway.” He explained that the importance of V11 has been reduced due to the many 10.x releases, but the company is already mostly at V11.
10.13 goes to internal beta tomorrow, external next week. Should handle Chuck’s complex left turn.— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) July 14, 2022
Beta v11 hopefully end of next month, which just amounts to incorporating highway. Importance of “v11” has been reduced by all the 10.x releases. We’re already mostly at v11.
It should be kept in mind that the creation of full self-driving is a very difficult task. Although each of us, as well as Tesla, wishes that it be achieved as soon as possible, there are still quite a large number of problems that need to be solved for this. On the path to full self-driving, we must remember that safety is the highest priority, so delays are an integral part of the process.
