Tesla has delayed the rollout of its Full Self-Driving (FSD) Beta 10.2 software rollout because of last-minute concerns, CEO Elon Musk Said Via his Twitter page.
He apologized for the delay, saying the release is likely happen on either Sunday or Monday. He didn’t specifically say what the “concerns” were.
The software was supposed to roll out Friday to about 1,000 Tesla owners with perfect safety scores of 100 —as determined by the automaker— with a gradual rollout for those with scores at 99 and below after that, according to Musk.
Tesla has been testing the beta version of its FSD software for about a year, and despite the head of the National Transportation Safety Board expressing serious concerns about the software’s safety, the carmaker began expanding FSD access to more drivers last month. Before a Tesla driver gets access to FSD, however, the company determines their “safety score,” using criteria that evaluate “the likelihood that your driving could result in a future collision.” The score is tabulated using data collected by sensors in the driver’s Tesla.
