Tesla’s Fully Self-Drive Beta impressed with street navigation and now it looks like it can also detect and avoid road debris, according to a new video.
Like the Tesla Autopilot, the automaker’s brand new self-driving Beta requires the driver’s attention at all times as it can encounter things it doesn’t know how to react to and even things it can’t. discovered.
Tesla even warned that “It can go wrong at worst. “
Debris on the road, or any kind of stationary object on the road, has been one of the problems with Tesla’s Autonomous Systems in the past.
The system will only keep the car in its lane and if the driver doesn̵7;t pay attention, it will sometimes lead to an accident.
Now, a Tesla owner with new fully autonomous Tesla (FSD) Beta software powered by rewritten Autopilot software shared a video showing FSD is avoiding debris on its way:
James Locke wrote about the new video:
“Driven a bit and caught the FSD beta safely, avoiding debris on the road.”
While the driving image doesn’t seem to show debris on the road, it looks like Tesla’s Full Self-Drive Beta will move the steering wheel slightly to avoid objects.
I personally have seen Autopilot avoid objects on the road, like killing on the road, but it’s inconsistent in my own experience.
Normally, it won’t avoid an object standing still on the road, even a vehicle, and that’s why we need to be attentive all the time.
It is encouraging now that FSD beta has a core rewrite that avoids road debris, but we will need to see more examples.
One thing I’m really looking forward to seeing is that Tesla’s FSD can avoid potholes.
Like road debris, some of them can be dangerous and should be avoided while others are safer to drive through and the difference can be difficult to make even for riders car is human.
It will be interesting to see how Tesla’s FSD responds to those situations as it will need a solution for the fully autonomous system to work.
