Tesla’s CEO Elon Musk unveiled on Tuesday via Twitter that the company will release the 10.13 beta version of its Full Self Driving technology in 2 weeks, in late June. According to what Musk tweeted on Friday, the version goes “deep on roundabouts” and “should get noticeably better with 10.13”.
On June 5, Tesla’s CEO had said that the upcoming version “smooths out intersection control, especially long lefts, and starts to handle roads with no map data at all” adding that “within a few months, FSD should be able to drive to a GPS point with zero map data”.
“Yes, car will navigate to a pin location, even if in a complex surface parking lot or hotel entrance. When in covered or underground parking lots, car will have to navigate using only inertial measurement, wheel movement & vision, as GPS signal is no longer available,” Tesla’s CEO said answering to an enthusiast.
In the same tweet, Musk also confirmed that the 10.12.2 version of the beta program is now expanding to 100k cars. The U.S. automaker is ramping up the number of beta testers after having only a few thousand people in the third quarter of 2021.
Tesla Full Self Driving technology “actively guides the car from a highway’s on-ramp to off-ramp, including suggesting lane changes, navigating interchanges, automatically engaging the turn signal and taking the correct exit,” Tesla says.
