If you haven’t been impressed with what you’ve seen of Tesla’s latest Full Self-Driving beta, version 9.2, you’re not alone. CEO Elon Musk agrees.
“FSD Beta 9.2 is actually not great imo,” he said in a tweet last night, “but Autopilot/AI team is rallying to improve as fast as possible.”

We’re trying to have a single stack for both highway & city streets, but it requires massive NN retraining.

While Tesla’s Full Self-Driving feature can perform impressively at times, videos from beta testers show it falling short at critical moments. In one video, a car approaching a small construction site suddenly steers toward a hole marked by orange cones. Earlier betas have seen Teslas successfully making turns in city streets before surging toward parked cars or scratching themselves by plowing through overgrown bushes extending into the right of way.
