Elon Musk-owned electric car maker Tesla has started pushing a new Full Self-Driving Beta (FSD Beta) software update (10.5) to the fleet.
According to the auto-tech website Electrek, the new update includes some interesting new features.
Some notable points include Tesla improving static world detection by “up to 13 per cent” by deploying a new auto labeling system that used 165,000 new videos.
The report said there will improve cone and sign detections by revving the generalized static object network with 15,000 more video clips and adjusting oversampling and overweighting strategies.
The new update has also enabled “emergency collision avoidance maneuvering” in shadow mode. It has also enabled behavior to lane change away from merges when safe to do so, it added.
Tesla is slowly rolling out what it is calling FSD Beta, an early version of its self-driving software currently being tested by a fleet of Tesla owners selected by the company and through its “safety test score”.
The software enables the vehicle to drive autonomously to a destination entered in the car’s navigation system, but the driver needs to remain vigilant and ready to take control at all times.
