Tesla Rolls Out FSD 10.3

Tesla’s latest update to its Full Self Driving software started rolling out to owners over the weekend.

In the last update, Tesla gave owners the opportunity to request access to the beta version of the software. The latest version – FSD Beta 10.3 – was pushed to owners who allowed Tesla to monitor their driving to produce a “Safety Score.” Owners with a near-perfect score are the first to receive the update.

Chief Executive Elon Musk said on Twitter that there was a slight delay in the release, but the team had identified the problem and intended to continue delivering the software.

The 10.3 release included quite a few release notes: 

  • Added FSD Profiles that allow drivers to control behaviors like rolling stops, exiting passing lanes, speed-based lane changes, following distance and yellow light headway.
  • Added planning capability to drive along oncoming lanes to maneuver around path blockage.
  • Improved creeping speed by linking speed to visibility network estimation and distance to encroachment point of crossing lanes.
  • Improved crossing object velocity estimation by 20% and yaw estimation by 25% by upreving surround video vehicle network with more data. Also increased system frame rate by +1.7 frames per second.
  • Improved vehicle semantic detections (e.g. brake lights, turn indicators, hazards) by adding +25k video clips to the training data set.
  • Improved static obstacle control by upreving the generalized static object network with 6k more video clips (+5.6% precision, +2.5% recall).
  • Allowed more acceleration when merging from on-ramps onto major roads and when lane changing from slow to fast lanes.
  • Reduced false slowdowns and improved offsetting for pedestrians by improving the model of interaction between pedestrians and the static world.
  • Improved turning profile for unprotected turns by allowing ego to lane lines more naturally, when safe to do so.
  • Improved speed profile for boosting onto high-speed roads by enforcing stricter longitudinal and lateral acceleration limits required to beat the crossing objects.

Tesla’s self-driving software is currently receiving quite a bit of scrutiny from regulators. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is currently investigating incidents where Tesla’s with Autopilot engaged crashed into emergency vehicles parked on the side of the road.

Model 3 LR RWD in Texas. Woke up to a notification that a sw update was available (the notification came in around 2:00 AM). Started the update to 36.5.2 about 20 minutes ago. Opted in since the beginning, no in/outs on Android. Didn't know the score for a few days and when I did it took a little to get back to 99. Gave up trying for 100 after the first wave as big city Texas driving makes that damm near impossible for me since I use the car every day. Just thankful I waited it out. I was concerned that Tesla would change the goalposts again about miles, days, etc. (#Birds up, 8-0)

I finally got it too but the FSD won’t engage. The visualization is there but it won’t actually engage.

According to this guy it looks like I’m not alone:

This is a beta so things like this happen. I waited a long time to get this I can wait a little longer.

Got it!

Has anyone else noticed extremely sensitive forward collision warnings on the highway even while not using AP? Twice it out red a car an eighth mile in front of me as I got on the accelerator.
Yes! Mine alerts like this only when not using autopilot but the car in front of me is 10 car lengths away yet still gives a forward collision warning.

After my first drive using BETA (successfully), I loaded up the family so they could experience it. Behold, autopilot could not be engaged (nor could cruise control). I tried resetting the car, driving for 10+ miles and letting it sit for awhile I still have no ability to engage autopilot. It’s almost as if it was disabled.

People are posting fixes, I’m about to try them -

My first drive was flawless, including an unprotected left turns. Next destination, the cruise control was unavailable. Turn off FSB Beta, still no cruise control or autosteer. On highway I got cruise control working, but not autosteer. Cruise control kept stopping after about 1/4 mile. Came home, read some posts on TMC that said to let car power down for a while, so the car is sleeping now.

Will try again in a little while.

I've driven with FSD engaged four times now, and so far I haven't encountered the "FSD Unavailable" thing others are seeing. It's a bit jerky sometimes, but I'm impressed overall with how far they've come.

I’m both impressed with and very scared of FSD. I got 10.3 this morning. After dealing with the unstoppable FCWs and tacc and autopilot not being available, it is now working. In the end I can say, this software is not ready for prime time in anyway. Phantom braking, random speeding up and slowing, trying to drive into a median, rolling through stop signs… The software is much worse than a new driver with their permit.

If this is the best so far, then yikes! Not worth $10,000! Thank goodness I got it on sale back in the day, but I’m sure it isn’t worth what I paid.

I just got a downgrade to .1 … makes me think they’re pulling it until they can get the issues fixed. Shoulda let it bake for one or two more days.

I was just notified that 2012.36.5.1 is downloading to my car. That's the first time I've ever seen a version downgrade pushed out. I guess it has to do with the "FSD Unavailable" thing?...
