The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has raised concerns regarding Tesla‘s Full Self-Driving Beta (FSD Beta) technology. In response to this, Tesla has released a software upgrade for the system, which is available as a voluntary update. The upgrade will be sent over the air to all 362,758 vehicles in the United States that are equipped with FSD Beta.
The NHTSA has referred to this as a “recall” even though no official recall has been issued because of the way the software update was made. It is crucial to remember that the NHTSA is not requiring Tesla to take any action; instead, the firm chose to do so voluntarily.
The fact that Tesla and the NHTSA have been in constant contact over Autopilot and FSD Beta is one of the announcement’s most interesting details. This shows a dedication to safety and a readiness to cooperate with governing organizations to make these systems as secure as feasible.
The software update will solve some FSD Beta-related problems, such as the vehicle’s ability to go through or make a turn at specified junctions during a static yellow traffic light and the perceived time spent in a stationary position at particular crossroads with a stop sign. The upgrade will also address the vehicle’s capacity to manage a lane change out of some turn only lanes to continue going straight as well as speed adjustment when moving through variable speed zones.
This software version represents a significant advance for the FSD Beta testing and enhancement process. Tesla is displaying their dedication to safety and to making its autonomous driving technologies as successful as possible by addressing these particular challenges. It will be intriguing to watch how these upgrades affect the functionality of FSD Beta and what other improvements lie ahead.
