Elon Musk said Tesla would use its telemetry data to make sure customers were "good" drivers before allowing them to access the Full Self-Driving Beta software.
This is a complicated situation, as these customers have already paid for the software.
Last week, Tesla launched the new Full Self-Driving (FSD) Beta v10 software update for early access customers.
The Tesla FSD Beta allows Tesla vehicles to move effectively on both highways and city streets, but is still considered Level 2 driver assistance, as it requires driver supervision at all times. The driver remains in charge of the vehicle and must keep his hands on the steering wheel and be ready to take control.
The v10 software update has been described as "impressive" by CEO Elon Musk.
As we mentioned yesterday, the update shows some progress, but it still has some important issues that make it less shocking.
Musk linked the update to the wider release of FSD Beta software, which so far has only been used by those with early access, which consists of Tesla employees and customers selected by Tesla.
The CEO is leading a wider release through a "download button" for people who have purchased the full $ 10.000 package from Tesla to finally access the latest version of the software.
Now Musk confirmed that the wider release will take place next Friday (September 24), but added a condition:
"The beta button will ask permission to evaluate driving behavior. If the driving behavior is good for 7 days, access to the beta will be granted. "
The CEO says that before receiving the FSD Beta, Tesla will request access to telemetry data for seven days and will use Tesla Insurance's driving behavior calculation to determine if the driver is "good" before allowing it to be used. FSD Beta.
