Tesla currently has 160,000 consumers participating in its Full Self Driving pilot programme
Tesla’s Optimus robot prototype was not the only item shown at the company’s AI Day presentation on Friday evening. During Tesla’s AI day, Autopilot director Ashok Elluswamy spoke about how the company’s Full Self Driving software has progressed. He claimed that 160,000 clients are already using the beta software, up from 2,000 at this time last year.
According to Tesla, there have been 35 software versions of FSD. In a Q&A session at the conclusion of the presentation, Musk made another forecast — one of many — that the technology would be ready for a global deployment by the end of this year, but he recognized the regulatory and testing challenges that remained.
Following that, Paril Jain, Tesla’s engineering lead for Autopilot motion planning, demonstrated how FSD has improved in particular interactions and can make “human-like” judgments. For example, when a Tesla makes a left turn into an intersection, it may pick a path that avoids colliding with impediments like as pedestrians crossing the street.
