Tesla FSD Beta 10.7 update with aggressiveness being toned down

Tesla FSD Beta 10.7 update expected to be released this Tuesday, is coming with interesting updates. Features in the previous updates like the braking system when there is a human or object and the bad readings from the other cars are all being improvised. Release notes showed many more details about the update.

Immediately recognizable from v10.7’s detailed Release Notes was that vehicles could now react to things quite a bit faster. With v10.7, FSD Beta would also be less likely to slow down due to bad readings from other cars and objects on the road. Also, the aggressiveness of FSD Beta seems to have been toned down to some degree, with the system now rolling and stopping smoothly for jaywalkers, instead of slamming on the brakes.

The release notes are stated as below,

  • Improved object attributes network to reduce false cut-in slowdowns by 50% and lane assignment error by 19%.
  • Improved photon-to-control vehicle response latency by 20% on average.
  •  Expanded use of regenerative braking in Autopilot down to 0 mph for smoother stops and improved energy efficiency.
  • Improved VRU (pedestrians, bicyclists, motorcycles, animals) lateral velocity 1 error by 4.9% by adding more auto-labeled and simulated training examples to the dataset.
  • Reduced false slowdowns for crossing objects by improved velocity estimates for objects at the end of visibility.
  • Reduced false slowdowns by adding geometric checks to cross-validate lane assignment of objects.
  • Improved speed profile for unprotected left turns when visibility is low.
  • Added more natural behavior to bias over bike lanes during right turns.
  • Improved comfort when yielding to jaywalkers by better modeling of stopping regions with soft and hard deadlines.
  • Improved smoothness for merge control with better modeling of merge point and ghost objects positioned at the edge of visibility.
  • Improved overall comfort by enforcing stricter lateral jerk bounds in trajectory optimizer.
  • Improved short deadline lane changes through richer trajectory modeling.
  • Improved integration between lead vehicle overtakes and lane change gap selection.
  •  Updated trajectory line visualization.

While FSD Beta 10.7 seems quite impressive, Elon Musk has noted that v10.8 would probably be released this coming Tuesday, together with the company’s Holiday Update. Tesla’s Holiday Updates are typically comprised of fun additions to vehicles’ features such as games and tricks like the external boombox.

Tesla FSD updates this year continue to be impressive as more features get added on. As people are also experiencing the all-new features, the confidence levels are also increasing for users to use the driver-assist features.
