Tesla FSD beta tackles San Francisco street that would make most human drivers sweat

FSD beta Chestnut St

Tesla’s Full Self-Driving (FSD) beta has only been around for five months. In that short amount of time it has shown off some impressive capabilities, but nothing like what was demonstrated on a busy San Francisco street last night.

In a video shared by FSD beta tester @WholeMarsBlog on Twitter, his Performance Model 3 travels down a busy Chestnut Street riddled with edge cases and scenarios that would make even seasoned human drivers take a second thought.

From double parked cars on the two lane street to jaywalkers and busy four-way stops with other cars and pedestrians, the self-driving software handles it all without even breaking a sweat.

Perhaps what is most impressive is watching the display to see how much the computer is able to take in and recognize from its surrounding environment.

Equally as impressive is that this is FSD beta v8.2. Tesla CEO Elon Musk recently said v8.3 has more than 1,000 improvements over the current version. That’s also before the next big update coming in April where FSD beta will switch to using vision only.

No matter how you look at it, if FSD beta is this good after five months with only 1,000 beta testers, it’s hard to imagine how quickly it is going to improve now that the testing group has doubled.
