Tesla's Full Self-Driving (FSD) version 12.12 is making its way to customers, bringing substantial advancements to Tesla's self-driving software. The release notes highlight a notable improvement, with the city streets' driving stack now powered by a single end-to-end neural network trained on millions of video clips. This replaces over 300,000 lines of explicit C++ code, showcasing Tesla's commitment to cutting-edge technology.
Early reports from customers who have experienced FSD Beta version 12.12 on the road indicate a significant enhancement in Tesla's autonomous software. Testers have shared positive feedback, emphasizing smoother driving experiences, marked by zero interventions, takeovers, or awkward moments.
Dhaval Shroff, a tester, expressed confidence in the update, stating, "This car will never get into a collision if you turn this thing on, even in unstructured environments." Shroff drew parallels between Tesla FSD Beta v12 and ChatGPT, highlighting the transformative impact of this version on car autonomy.
Elon Musk had previously mentioned that version 12 required additional training, particularly under heavy precipitation conditions, before being released to customers. It remains to be seen if version 12.12 has addressed and improved FSD Beta's performance in such challenging weather scenarios.
In a notable development, Musk announced that FSD Beta v12 will shed its "beta" designation, marking a significant milestone in the evolution of Tesla's autonomous software. This change reflects the increasing maturity and confidence in the capabilities of Tesla's self-driving technology.
