Tesla CEO Elon Musk said the new redesigned version of Tesla’s Full Self-Driving (FSD) autopilot will lead to “Quantum leap” in terms of quality improvements, and this new version of the software will begin shipping to the fleet in the next six to ten weeks.
As a reminder, Tesla is now fundamentally redesigning the autopilot system in its vehicles. As part of training the new algorithm, according to Elon Musk, AI solves more and more problems. The autopilot will also receive a much more detailed and advanced object marking system.
The CEO claims that all of this will lead to a fundamental change: “Improvement FSD will be a real quantum leap, because this is a fundamental redesign of the architecture, not an adjustment to the existing model. I personally drive a car with advanced alpha autopilot. Nearly zero intervention required when commuting between home and work. Limited public release in 6-10 weeks “…
Tesla’s chief executive said last month that there are two to four months left before the autopilot update, which will help the company roll out more features much faster. Thus, the timeline approached by several weeks. “Limited release” usually means Tesla is going to send the update to early early access members who will test beta versions of some new features and provide feedback before Tesla rolls out wider.
This is the second time that Musk has mentioned testing the alpha version of the autopilot in his personal Tesla car. Last time he talked about this during the reporting conference for the second quarter, also boasting that he travels between home and work without interfering with the control of the car.
Last year, Musk announced Tesla’s plan by the end of 2020 to deploy 1 million robotic taxis for a network of autonomous travel.
