Elon Musk said that the number of users of the beta version of the Full Self-Driving (FSD) autopilot function has exceeded 100,000 people.
Recall that this is a new version of the driver assistance system, which is characterized by increased autonomy. Just six months ago, only about 2,000 Tesla car owners had access to FSD, and in general, the beta version was launched in October 2020.
Musk also acknowledged that he was often wrong in predicting the emergence of a full-fledged autopilot in Tesla cars, but this year is exactly the year when this will happen. True, the technical side of the issue is only one of two problems. The second is relevant legislation.
However, it is worth saying that such a huge number of users of the FSD function will undoubtedly have an extremely positive effect on its development, since developers will receive orders of magnitude more data.
