On November 2nd, according to foreign media reports, electric car manufacturer Tesla plans to update its fully automated driving (FSD) beta software every 5 to 10 days.
On the evening of October 20 this year, Tesla launched a fully automated driving test version of its software to some customers. It is reported that the beta software can provide fully automated driving capabilities for all models of the company.
If the test is successful, Musk may finally launch fully-functional fully automated driving software to the public at the end of this year, which will bring Tesla’s cars closer to competitors pursuing Level 5 autonomous driving such as Waymo and Cruise.
In the third quarter earnings conference call held on Wednesday night local time, Musk said that the fully automated driving (FSD) function is expected to be launched before the end of this year.
According to reports, Tesla’s semi-autonomous driving software has been greatly improved compared to the past. However, the company will continue to improve its functionality by frequently releasing software updates.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk expects that the company will improve its fully automated driving beta software and update it every 5 to 10 days.
Foreign media reported that the latest update of Tesla’s fully automated driving beta software has brought some changes to the visualization of cars. This update has improved the performance of the car during autonomous driving, which has reduced the intervention required by the driver by 30%.
As the functions of the fully automated driving kit continue to increase, Tesla has raised prices for the kit several times in the past few years, the most recent time being last Thursday. Last Thursday, the price of the kit rose by $2,000 to $10,000.
Tesla has said that with the introduction of more features, the price of fully automated driving kits may continue to increase.
