Highly Expected: Tesla's latest fully autonomous management Beta 10.2 (FSD) software is highly anticipated and has been extensively reviewed by owners, investors and regulators such as the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB). It was scheduled to launch on October 8 for eligible Tesla owners, and the FSD release delay was announced as early as Saturday. The tweet, posted by Mask, postponed the release to "either Sunday or Monday". There are currently no further updates to the release schedule.
Some last minute concerns about this build. It will likely be published on Sunday or Monday. Sorry for the delay.- Elon Musk (@elonmusk) October 9, 2021
More than 1,000 Tesla owners with a Security Score of 100 should receive a Software Update. Another 100-200 owner who had a security score of 99 was to get the copy after the supply of the initial set was completed. The delay comes after the release of version 10.1 beta, which Musk previously announced was delayed to sync with the latest version 10.2. I mentioned earlier that Mask and Tesla should first address the vulnerabilities associated with FSD technology. NTSB data is in addition to investigations conducted by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) following several Tesla-related accidents involving a Tesla driver.
FSD has been developing, testing and purifying for several years. Tesla owners who chose this program agreed to monitor their driving habits and also sign non-disclosure agreements (NDAs) issued by Tesla. These non-disclosure agreements are designed to prevent participants from submitting videos and information that address FSD issues. Despite the name, the FSD does not intend to completely replace driver responsibility and should not be considered an autopilot setup. Previous articles referred to the mask, reminding users that FSD is not a substitute for awareness, urging them to use appropriate safety, and telling them to "...be paranoid."
With the potential for catastrophic events as a result, it is difficult to wear the mask due to constant monitoring of the editorial status and slippage of deadlines for technical and safety reasons rather than pressure on incomplete performance just to meet the deadline blaming customers and investors.
