Tesla has released a new version of its experimental driver-assisted software, which dubbed it fully self-driving beta 10.2, according to an email the company sent to eligible car owners on Monday.
The FSD Beta Tesla is still working on new features, such as “Autostire on city streets”, which enable drivers to navigate complex urban environments without removing the steering wheel with their own hands.
Prototype technology, such as the Tesla Standard Driver Assistance System, Autopilot and Full Self-Driving Premium Driver Assistance Packages, does not actually make Tesla vehicles autonomous.
In an email inviting customers to download the new beta, Tesla warned, “Full self-driving limited primary access is in beta and should be used with extra caution. It can go wrong and at worst, so you must always be on the lookout for your Put your hands up and pay extra attention to the road. “
In 2019, Tesla raised 2. 2.7 billion from the sale of stocks and convertible bonds after telling shareholders that the autonomy would raise the company to a ্যাপ 500 billion market cap. The company further claims that the addition of self-driving capabilities through software updates will increase the price of Tesla vehicles, which will be valued at up to $ 250,000 in three years.
The Tesla market cap exceeded $ 500 billion at the end of last year, but the company has yet to supply driverless vehicles.
Meanwhile, its current driver assistance systems have received automatic scrutiny from critics, investigations by federal and state authorities, and legal reprimands in Germany.
Both the National Transportation Safety Board and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration are investigating Tesla to see if the company’s driver assistance features contributed to the crash or that someone died. Other accidents involved Tesla cars, autopilot features, hitting the first reactive vehicles parked on the side of the road.
NTSB has specifically called for the Tesla FSD beta program to take advantage of the lack of federal regulation and to conduct tests on public roads that could pose a risk to drivers, other motorists, passengers or pedestrians.
The latest release of FSD Beta comes just days after Tesla CEO Elon Musk’s original plan. In October, Musk wrote the following on Twitter, “Some last-minute concerns about this construction. Will probably be released on Sunday or Monday. Sorry for the delay.” He did not specify the nature of Tesla’s concerns about technology.
Who gets it?
To gain access to the FSD beta program, drivers must own a Tesla car with new hardware, and must purchase or subscribe to the premium FSD package, which costs $ 10,000 in the US or $ 199 per month. The company revealed earlier this year that FSD Beta has about 2,000 users.
To determine who should have access to the latest 10.2 version of FSD Beta, Tesla has used an insurance calculator designed to give drivers a “safety score.” Those who got 100 out of 100 possible points in a week of driving at least 100 miles were invited to download the new FSD beta and start testing.

During Tesla 2021’s annual shareholder meeting last week, one participant asked Mask his security score.
He said he did not know, and added:
“However, the calculation of our security score is clearly incomplete. That’s why we try to say very strongly that it is a beta, if the security score is not alpha in the calculation. So, it is going to change a lot – yes, I hope it It does improve a lot. It’s really fair – it’s a very early stage algorithm. “
This week’s FSD beta update was also pushed to the company’s existing FSD beta users who had access before the company launched the Security Score.
In the past, when Tesla invited owners to participate in its FSD Beta Early Access program, the company strongly advised them to keep their system experience secret.
In an agreement sent to Tesla drivers for FSD beta access earlier this year, the company told them not to “share any information about the program with the public”, including “keeping your experience with the program a secret” and taking screenshots. Blog posts, or posting on social media sites.
Tesla has named Facebook, Instagram, Reddit, TickTock, Snapchat and YouTube as sites where owners will not share their FSD beta usage information, according to a copy of the full agreement obtained by CNBC.
Vice previously reported privacy requirements.
In the same agreement, Tesla further stated that participating owners should not use their vehicles to share Uber, elevators, Turos, scoops and other rides বা or vehicles. And Tesla warned users that downloading the FSD beta meant they wouldn’t be able to go back to previous versions of their FSD software.
This week, Tesla seems to have avoided a long legal deal. When Tesla invited some drivers to the latest beta, they said:
