It is important to share that in Beta FSD Tesla vehicles can drive autonomously to a destination fed into the navigation system of the car. However, the driver needs to remain vigilant and active to take control at any time. As the responsibility lies with the driver and not with the vehicle, the Beta FSD is considered only a level 2 driver-assist system.
The update FSD Beta v11
The update v11 is an important and big step. The update includes many new neural networks. As a consumer, the update is also important because it is may merge the FSD Beta software stack of Tesla, which is primarily used on roads & city streets with the Autopilot software stack, which is used as a level 2 driver-assist system for highways. Autopilot software stack relies on many single-camera & single-frame networks.
However, the FSD Beta v11 will use multi-camera video networks along with the next-gen planner. The system will allow for complex interactions with less reliance on lanes. The overall system will make the EV to be more intelligent with smoother control & better decision-making.
The Tesla FSD Beta V11.3.1, yet to see a full release to consumers, has been received well by the company’s veteran testers. On seeing the clips showcasing V11.3.1’s capabilities some users are so impressed, that they even feel that the new system drives better than a capable human driver in some situations.
