Blog Tesla’s FSD Beta 10.2 Coming This Friday

The next update to Tesla’s FSD Beta will be available to qualifying drivers on Friday, Chief Executive Elon Musk said.

Version 10.2 will be rolled out to about 1,000 Tesla owners who have requested access and achieved a perfect Safety Score. Version 10.1 offered an option to request access to the FSD Beta software. The beta was previously only available to a limited number of testers.

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 on Twitter that the update will include a “long list of mostly little items” and that the “driving experience is significantly better.”

However, Musk also noted that Tesla’s neural networks have more data for certain areas of the U.S., so the FSD experience will likely vary.

I am confused. Why does Tesla give the new self-driving system to 100% safe drivers? In other words, if I am a safe driver, 100% of the time, then Tesla FSD has nothing to offer me, safety speaking. But if I came in at 80% safety profile, then it has a lot to offer me.
My understanding is, Tesla is offering FSD Beta to (in their opinion) the safest drivers first because in this beta stage, FSD is still in a development stage that can cause the car to do unexpected things (stopping, turning at the wrong time, unsafe turns...) without any notice. So, Tesla wants drivers that will monitor their car at all times FSD Beta is controlling the car. If you look at it at extremes, Tesla doesn't want (right now anyways) the worst drivers who may not bother to pay enough attention or be able to quickly decide that they need to intervene if FSD is doing/going to do something bad. I'm not saying that anyone other than the 100 or 99 guys are the only ones capable of handling FSD Beta, but I think it's Tesla's best shot at getting the "Top Guns" to help work out the kinks in FSD Beta.
Well, that's MY $.02 anyways.
For the folks that have 100%, was there a minimum number of miles they had to drive? I would have more confidence in a person that drove 500 miles with a 95-99% score over someone that drove only 5 miles with a 100% score. Seems the first is more realistic.
My question, too. We have had our model 3 since 2020, but only just took a long drive--1,000 miles. Before that, all 40 mile RT to town.
