Tesla releases new Full Self-Driving Beta (10.10) software update to remove “rolling stop”, fix some edge cases and more
Tesla has started releasing a new Full Self-Driving Beta (10.10) software update which includes several changes including removal of “rolling stop”, fixing some outliers, and more.
Fully Autonomous Tesla in Beta
Since October 2020, Tesla has been slowly rolling out what it calls the “Full Self-Driving Beta” (FSD Beta), which is an early version of its self-driving software currently being tested by a fleet of company-selected Tesla owners. and through its “security test score”.
The software allows the vehicle to navigate autonomously to a destination entered into the car’s navigation system, but the driver must remain alert and ready to take control at all times.
Since the responsibility lies with the driver and not with Tesla’s system, it is still considered a level two driver assistance system despite its name. It was something of a “two steps forward, one step back” program, as some updates saw regressions in terms of driving capabilities.
Tesla frequently released new software updates for the FSD Beta program and added more owners to it.
In the fourth quarter of 2021, the automaker said it had nearly 60,000 owners in the FSD Beta program.
Tesla FSD Beta 10.10
Now Tesla is releasing the new FSD Beta version 10.10 and it includes several improvements including the ability for the vehicle to use a lane ahead to try to avoid an object in the road if it is deemed safe.
It shows that Tesla is increasingly venturing to ensure that the FSD can not only tackle regular driving maneuvers, but is also prepared for some rare cases.
The 10.10 FSD beta update also rolls back the “rolling stop” feature as part of the NHTSA safety recall announced yesterday.
Here are the full release notes:
- Smoother fork maneuvers and turn lane selection using high-fidelity trajectory primitives.
- Roll stop functionality disabled in all FSD profiles. This behavior allowed the vehicle to traverse multi-stop intersections, but only when several conditions were met, including: vehicle speed less than 5.6 mph, no relevant objects/pedestrians/cyclists detected, sufficient visibility, and all roads entering the intersection has speed limits below 30 mph
- Improved generalized static object network by 4% using improved ground truth trajectories.
- Improved smoothness when stopping to traverse objects at intersections by modeling soft and hard constraints to better represent the urgency of slowing down.
- Activated lane change in an oncoming lane to bypass static obstacles, when safe to do so.
- Improved the smoothness of merge handling by making it more consistent with previous cycle speed control decisions.
- Improved traffic control handling at flashing red lights by adding more caution for events where crossing vehicles may not stop.
- Better understanding of the right-of-way at intersections with better modeling of the extent of intersections.
This update came pretty quickly after 10.9 was rolled out just 2 weeks ago.
At the time, CEO Elon Musk said Tesla would expand the program to Canada within “2-4 weeks.”
Yesterday the CEO said he would be in the country by the end of the month.
We expect more updates to arrive frequently in the coming months as Tesla strives to achieve the goal of achieving a fully autonomous driving system that is safer than humans by the end. of the year, which Musk said he would be “shocked” if it didn’t happen. .
