Elon Musk says there were ‘problems’ that forced Tesla to withdraw the latest self-driving beta


The latest Tesla 10.3 Full Self-Driving (FSD) beta software was pulled shortly after its release, with CEO Elon Musk citing in a tweet, TechCrunch reported. Musk mentioned that one of those issues is “regression” with left turns, Tesla posted about frontal phantom collision warnings, autonomous driving bugs, and more.

The latest Tesla 10.3 Full Self-Driving (FSD) beta software was pulled shortly after its release, with CEO Elon Musk citing in a tweet, TechCrunch reported. Musk mentioned that one of those issues is “regression” with left turns, Tesla posted about frontal phantom collision warnings, autonomous driving bugs, and more. The FSD has reportedly been reverted to version 10.2, but some users have claimed to no longer have access to the FSD, according to The Verge.

Seeing some issues with 10.3, so rolling back to 10.2 temporarily.

Please note, this is to be expected with beta software. It is impossible to test all hardware configs in all conditions with internal QA, hence public beta.

The latest version of FSD 10.3 introduced a number of new features, according to the release notes posted on Reddit. These include FSD profiles that allow drivers to change vehicle behavior, lane changes, safety distance and much more. Others include improved velocity control, reduced false decelerations, improved object velocity estimation and much more.

Testers have noted in several videos that DSF is showing forward collision warnings despite no apparent danger, accompanied by unexpected automatic braking. Others have seen traffic aware cruise control (TACC) issues, autopilot “panic” and other bugs. Elon Musk tweeted that these issues are , adding that “it is impossible to test all hardware configurations in all conditions so we do public testing. The latest beta, FSD 10.2, was delayed due to “last minute concerns” with the update.

Musk’s pullback and comments on public beta testing are expected to further increase scrutiny of the DSF program. NHTSA has already requested more data from Tesla about the public beta, and says Tesla needs to address “basic security issues” before expanding it further. Regulators also asked Tesla for more information about the “safety scores” that make certain drivers eligible for the DSF program.

Regulators are also concerned that while Tesla drivers can opt for the beta program, nearby drivers and pedestrians have no choice. For example, some Tesla vehicles with 10.3 software automatically braked for no reason, which could have caused a collision with a vehicle behind.”

The name itself is misleading (as is Autopilot), as the FSD does not offer fully autonomous driving, but simply advanced driver assistance.
