A little over a month after releasing Tesla Autopilot’s Full Self-Driving (FSD) to a small group of select drivers, Tesla is gearing up for a wider release of the software, according to the company’s CEO, Elon Musk
Tesla has so far only released the FSD update to “expert and careful” drivers, and so a wider release creates the scary prospect of more Tesla owners experimenting with the feature on city streets.
Autopilot has enabled lane changes on clearly marked highways, but FSD allows drivers to automatically handle city streets, traffic lights, roundabouts and street turns.
It also offers assisted parking, the summon feature for parking lots, highway driving assistance, but the feature does not make a Tesla an autonomous car.
Responding to a question on Twitter about a wider FSD beta, Musk said it would probably roll out in about two weeks.
