Tesla FSD Beta v10.69.25: An Improved but Not Perfect Autonomous Driving Experience
FSD Beta v10.69.25 is the latest version of Tesla's Full Self-Driving (FSD) software, and it comes with a number of improvements. The Object Detection network has been upgraded to photon count video streams, and all parameters have been retrained with the latest autolabeled datasets. This has resulted in better accuracy and latency, higher recall of far away vehicles, lower velocity error of crossing vehicles by 20%, and improved VRU precision by 20%. Additionally, the VRU Velocity network has been converted to a two-stage network, reducing latency and improving crossing pedestrian velocity error by 6%. The NonVRU Attributes network has also been converted to a two-stage network, reducing latency, incorrect lane assignment of crossing vehicles by 45%, and incorrect parked predictions by 15%.
Overall, users are reporting positive experiences with FSD Beta v10.69.25. It appears to be performing well in low visibility scenarios, completing left turns within safety margins without changing its mind or inspiring road rage among other drivers. However, it still doesn't adjust to reduced speed limits quickly enough and makes unnecessary lane changes. Additionally, some users have noted that the brake lights could be brighter considering how erratically it sometimes behaves and how many people tailgate. Finally, FSD is not yet able to recognize warning/speed limit signs for sharp right/left turns on roads, nor does it handle country roads without a center line or curb very well.
In conclusion, FSD Beta v10.69.25 is an improvement over previous versions of Tesla's FSD software, but there is still room for improvement in certain areas. Users should be aware of its limitations before relying on it for their daily driving needs. Tesla is continuing to work on the software and should be releasing new updates in the near future.
What is the build / firmware number for "FSD Beta v10.69.25"?
The build / firmware number for "FSD Beta v10.69.25" is 10.69.25.* (2022.44.25.5, 2022.44.30.5, 2022.44.30.10).
What improvements have been made with FSD Beta v10.69.25?
FSD Beta v10.69.25 has upgraded the Object Detection network to photon count video streams and retrained all parameters with the latest autolabeled datasets (with a special emphasis on low visibility scenarios). It has also converted the VRU Velocity network to a two-stage network, which reduced latency and improved crossing pedestrian velocity error by 6%. Additionally, it has converted the NonVRU Attributes network to a two-stage network, which reduced latency, reduced incorrect lane assignment of crossing vehicles by 45%, and reduced incorrect parked predictions by 15%.
How does FSD Beta v10.69.25 perform in sharp right/left turns?
FSD Beta v10.69.25 does not take warning/speed limit signs into consideration when going into sharp right/left turns, so it may not slow down appropriately in these situations. Additionally, its steering can be very odd on country roads without a center line and a curb or right lane line, making constant sharp right/left turns while the road is relatively straight - like a child steering a toy car.
