Tesla’s Full Self-Driving (FSD) beta software has only been out in the wild for just over a month, first released on October 20, 2020, but it will soon see its fifth update.
Since its release we have seen cars equipped with the beta software handle a number of interesting and unique driving situations. While it still needs a lot of improvements before a full public release, the FSD team at Tesla has been working non-stop to implement bug fixes and improvements.
That hard work has resulted in four over-the-air (OTA) updates to the FSD software. Now a fifth version is ready to be released, which according to CEO Elon Musk will happen “in a few days.”
It was only a few days ago that Musk teased “entire new areas of functionality” coming in the next release. In his latest tweet, he reiterated that the improvements to the autonomous driving capabilities will be significant.
Canadians are still hopeful that a release of the self-driving software will happen north of the border before the end of the year. Earlier this month Musk confirmed Canada and Norway would be next on the list to receive it. Without providing a specific timeline, the CEO only said it would happen once the US was “out of early beta.”
