Elon Musk rolls back newest ‘Full Self-Driving’ beta due to software issues

Tesla CEO Elon Musk said on Twitter that the business had temporarily withdrawn the latest version of its Full Self-Driving (FSD) beta software, which released less than a day ago. On Sunday, Musk tweeted, “Seeing some issues with 10.3, thus temporarily rolling back to 10.2.” “Please keep in mind that this is to be expected when using beta software. Internal QA (quality assurance) cannot test all hardware configurations in all scenarios, hence public beta is required.”

After users complained of false collision warnings and other concerns, Tesla turned back the newest version of its Full Self-Driving (FSD) beta software on Sunday, less than a day after it released. The setback occurs as Tesla faces regulatory scrutiny over the safety of its “FSD” (semi-autonomous driving) technology. “Seeing some issues with 10.3, therefore temporarily going back to 10.2,” CEO Elon Musk announced on Twitter on Sunday.

This disclosure comes as regulators question the safety of Tesla’s advanced driver assistance technology, dubbed “Autopilot,” after numerous vehicles collided with parked emergency vehicles while the system activated. Tesla automobiles come equipped with Autopilot as standard. The so-called FSD software, which costs an extra $10,000 and includes more automated driving functions, is an additional $10,000.

Tesla automobiles, on the other hand, are not self-driving. Even when FSD turned on, it is still an advanced driver aid system, and drivers must remain completely vigilant. According to a recent MIT study, drivers are less vigilant, which can put them in danger. Some Tesla owners were supposed to get version 10.3 on Friday, but Musk said on Saturday that they would have to wait another day. On Saturday, he tweeted, “Internal QA identified regression in some left turns at traffic lights in 10.3.” “Work is being fixed, and it will most likely released tomorrow.”

Multiple Forward Collision Warnings shown in videos recorded by beta users of the 10.3 software, despite the fact that there is no immediate risk, and some automobiles even auto-brake without justification. Drivers also flocked to social media to express their dissatisfaction with issues such as the disappearance of the Autosteer option, troubles with traffic-aware cruise control, and Autopilot panic. Musk stated on Twitter that the business is working on the Autopilot and cruise control concerns. Musk has not stated when the next version of FSD would release.
