Tesla boss Elon Musk isn’t afraid to answer people’s questions about the electric car manufacturer on Twitter. The billionaire entrepreneur interacts with many of his followers, tweets about his favorite cryptocurrency – Dogecoin – and also talks about the plans of his aerospace company SpaceX. On August 15, Musk spoke with a Twitter user who identifies himself as a Tesla Full Self-Driving (FSD) beta tester about the expected date of the latest update to the advanced self-driving software.

Tagging Musk, user @nickwhoward asked when the FSD Beta 9.2 would arrive. “I thought it was supposed to fall last night,” the tweet read. The Tesla boss reacted quickly. “Some unexpected last minute problems. Should go out in the next day or two, ”he replied. In a subsequent tweet, Musk listed the improvements his company had made to version 9.2.

The first of a list of changes is the “clear-to-go boost through curves on all secondary and main roads”, which will be extended to all roads in version 9.3. The next, he said, is to improve peak behavior “where we’re smarter” when it comes to bypassing the lead vehicle.

Among other developments is a new lanes network with 50,000 additional clips from the new auto-labeling pipeline. FSD Beta 9.2 will also have a new VRU Speed ​​Model (VRU) with a 12 percent improvement and better VRU release performance. “This is the first“ quantization conscious workout, ”Musk said.

The latest version will also have a “shadow mode” for new, intersecting, merging targets that will help improve VRU controls.

In July, Elon Musk reiterated that Tesla’s robotic axes will soon be a reality. Even then, he replied to a Twitter user who claimed that he was 90 percent sure of the electric car manufacturer’s ability to make robot axes a reality and a success.

This should be clear to anyone who has experienced FSD beta evolution.

Driving yourself requires solving a large chunk of the real-world AI, so it’s an insanely difficult problem, but Tesla can do it.

AI Day is going to be great.

Musk had said it should be clear to anyone who has experienced FSD beta evolution. However, he emphasized the “insanely difficult problem” of getting artificial intelligence (AI) right in the real world, which he has spoken of in the past. “Driving yourself requires solving a lot of the real-world AI, so it’s an insanely difficult problem, but Tesla can do it. AI Day is going to be great, ”he added.
