Tesla ‘Full Self-Driving’ beta features an ‘Assertive’ mode with rolling stops – TechCrunch

Profiles are back in the latest 10.3 beta of Tesla’s “Full Autonomous Driving” with “Assent Mode” that could lead to rolling stops and other boundary maneuvers, the edge It has been reported. The update was originally released in October 2021 with three profiles (“Chill”, “Average” and “Assertive”), but was pulled after only two days due to issues with left-hand traffic light, unexpected stops and more.

The latest update released yesterday shows that the full beta profiles are back. If you choose “Assertive,” the notes state that “in this profile, your Model X will have a smaller following distance, make more speed lane changes, won’t get out of lanes and may stop rolling.” as Tweet embed Notes, the system may also perform rolling stops even in the “medium” position.

In general, a rolling stop means that the car does not come to a complete stop at a stop sign (which is illegal and dangerous) but it is not yet clear if this is what the FSD will do. It’s also illegal in many states to stay in the left lane or pass if you’re not passing anyone, and of course, it’s never a good idea to keep a close eye on the vehicle in front of you. All that said, the mode hasn’t been tested enough yet to prove exactly how it does these things.

Over the weekend, CEO Elon Musk announced that Tesla will raise the price of the FSD from $10,000 to $12,000, although it is still in beta. As noted before, the name “full self-driving” is misleading (much like autopilot), as the FSD does not offer true Level 4 autonomous driving, but simply Level 2 advanced driver assistance.
