Tesla will release the next version of it’s Full Self Driving Beta on October 8, Chief Executive Elon Musk said in a tweet.
The company released last week version 10.1 of the software, which included a button to request access to the beta. Tesla previously only gave access to employees and select owners.
By requesting access, owners give Tesla permission to evaluate their driving to create a Safety Score. The Safety Score is an assessment of driving behavior based on five metrics called Safety Factors. These are combined to estimate the likelihood that driving could result in a future collision.
Musk said drivers will need to have a near perfect score in the early roll out.
“First few days probably 100/100, then 99, 98, etc.,” Musk tweeted.
Tesla’s self-driving system is currently under scrutiny from federal investigators after a series of crashes when Autopilot was engaged.
