Watch Tesla’s Full Self-Driving Beta software run without “rolling stops”

Tesla rolled out Full Self-Driving Beta software version 10.10, which eliminated the vehicle’s ability to perform “rolling stops”. The feature was to be removed following a reprimand from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), which asked Tesla to remove the feature from the beta program via an update.

Earlier this week, NHTSA asked Tesla to recall 53,822 vehicles. The term booster is applicable here, according to NHTSA. NHTSA recalls may include any repair required, including a software update, to remedy a potential security risk. Software updates, although performed from the comfort of a garage or parking spot, are still technically considered a recall as they are a manufacturer’s remedy to a problem that could lead to a security risk. .

Tesla to recall over 53,000 FSD Beta cars via ‘rolling stop’ feature, fix to be released via live update

The recall applies to Model S and Model X vehicles built from 2016 to 2022, Model 3 from 2017 to 2022 and Model Y from 2020 to 2022.

Tesla said it would fix the issue with a software update. The FSD Beta 10.10 release notes are as follows:

– Smoother fork maneuvers and turn lane selection using high fidelity trajectory primitives.

– Rolling stop functionality disabled in all FSD profiles. This behavior allowed the vehicle to traverse multi-stop intersections, but only when several conditions were met, including: vehicle speed less than 5.6 mph, no relevant objects/pedestrians/cyclists detected, sufficient visibility, and all roads Inbound at the intersection have speed limits below 30 mph.

– Improved generalized static object network by 4% using improved ground truth trajectories.

– Improved smoothness when stopping to cross objects at intersections by modeling soft and hard constraints to better represent the urgency of slowing down.

– Lane change enabled in an oncoming lane to bypass static obstacles, when safe.

– Improved smoothness of merge handling by increasing consistency with previous cycle speed control decisions.

– Improved traffic control handling at flashing red lights by adding more caution for events where crossing vehicles may not stop.

– Better understanding of the right-of-way at intersections with better modeling of the extent of intersections.

The fully autonomous Beta’s “rolling stop” feature was designed to allow vehicles to traverse a multi-stop intersection while maintaining speeds between 0.1 and 5.6 mph. According to NHTSA’s safety recall report, Tesla met with NHTSA on January 19 to discuss the “rolling stop” feature and all related details. Tesla made the voluntary decision to disable the feature on January 20, 2022. NHTSA said its primary concern was “Entering a multi-stop intersection without coming to a complete stop can increase the risk of collision. Additionally, the agency said, “Tesla is not aware of any collisions, injuries, or fatalities related to this condition.

Tesla recently said its Beta program has surpassed 60,000 vehicles.

Updated 2:43 PM 2/7/2022: Revised second paragraph for clarity. NHTSA’s definition of “recall” includes issues that could be resolved by software updates.
