Tesla has announced on its website it is not any longer deploying Full Self-Driving (FSD) Beta software to latest buyers or subscribers following a recall by the NHTSA and Transport Canada earlier this month.
Nearly two weeks ago the NHTSA and Transport Canada published recall notices covering 362,758 cars within the US and 20,667 cars in Canada. In keeping with the NHTSA recall notice there have been 4 specific scenarios where certain “operational characteristics” of FSD Beta “could potentially infringe upon local traffic laws.” The fix is a software update to correct these issues, but as of today there remains to be no timeline for when that update will probably be released.
“Until the software version containing the fix is offered, we’ve paused the rollout of FSD Beta to all who’ve opted-in but haven’t yet received a software version containing FSD Beta.”
Tesla also published answers to several steadily asked questions, considered one of which was whether FSD Beta is secure for existing testers to proceed to make use of until the update is released. Tesla reminds users that FSD Beta remains to be a SAE Level 2 driver support feature and that you just are still liable for the operation of the vehicle, suggesting that when you will not be being attentive the software could break some local traffic laws.
Listed here are the 4 scenarios identified within the recall notice.
- Traveling or turning through certain intersections during a stale yellow traffic light
- The perceived duration of the vehicle’s static position at certain intersections with a stop sign, particularly when the intersection is obvious of every other road users
- Adjusting vehicle speed while traveling through certain variable speed zones, based on detected speed limit signage and/or the vehicle’s speed offset setting that’s adjusted by the motive force
- Negotiating a lane change out of certain turn-only lanes to proceed traveling straight
Similar to with other software updates, existing testers won’t should do anything and this update will probably be pushed to your automotive when it is offered. The software won’t be faraway from your vehicle while the update is in development.
