The new FSD visuals make it seem like drivers see inside the minds of Tesla’s AI team. The electric car enthusiast noticed that the car seemed to see a lot more than it did before, from the shoulder of the road before turning to the people walking around the car, and more.The two Tesla enthusiasts activated FSD while cruising the city streets, a function that previous iterations of Full Self-Driving did not have the ability to do. He said Tesla’s FSD relied heavily on lane markers before the limited beta was released. Its reliance on lane markers made it difficult for FSD to navigate residential streets.
The new update didn’t seem to have a hard time crossing a residential area, nor a turning issue. Previously, FSD did not do left and right turns alone. Tesla’s Full Self-Driving software only kept the car in its lane, helped exit lanes, and stopped at red lights or stop signs with confirmation.
During their real-world test, the two EV enthusiasts showed how Teslas can perform turns with the limited beta of FSD. The feat may be minor for most experienced drivers, but not so much for new ones. Making turns can be scary even for human drivers after all, especially on congested roads with drivers lacking in the department of tact. So FSD making a turn on its own, and cautiously at that, is quite an accomplishment.
The duo were also able to see the difference between FSD’s reaction to a red light in an intersection and a green light in an intersection. Tesla Raj observed how the human-like FSD acted in these cases. For example, the car stopped at intersections and proceeded slowly – as if pausing to check for oncoming cars – before executing the turn.
The small action really showed how far Tesla has come in the development of FSD. Over the past few months, Elon Musk has been providing Tesla owners with information here and there on the improvements coming with the autopilot rewrite. He teased the deep ramifications of the rewrite, especially when it comes to FSD. And when Tesla finally released the limited beta of FSD, it certainly didn’t disappoint.
Tesla’s limited FSD beta will continue to roll out to more Early Access owners over the weekend, giving the community something to look forward to at the end of the workweek. While the full self-drive beta is available to more early access owners, Tesla CEO Elon Musk has announced that the price of FSD will soon be increased by $ 2,000. The current price of FSD is $ 8,000. He later tweeted that the price increase would take effect on Thursday, October 29 for the US market only.
