FSD Beta v12.3.1

Tesla FSD Beta v12.3.1 feature in update 2023.44.30.30
Models:
S
3
X
Y

FSD Beta v12 upgrades the city-streets driving stack to a single end-to-end neural network trained on millions of video clips, replacing over 300k lines of explicit C++ code.

Single Pull in FSD Beta

Tesla Single Pull in FSD Beta feature in update 2023.44.30.30
Undocumented
Models:
S
3
X
Y
Undocumented

When you enable Full Self-Driving (Beta), your vehicle will use the Single Pull setting by default. This means that you'll turn on Autopilot when you pull the drive stalk down once.

Traffic-Aware Cruise Control won't be available unless you choose it in your vehicle settings at Autopilot > Traffic-Aware Cruise Control. Doing so will disable Full Self-Driving (Beta).

Removal of TACC with FSD Beta

Tesla Removal of TACC with FSD Beta feature in update 2023.44.30.30
Undocumented
Models:
S
3
X
Y
Undocumented

In the Autopilot menu, you can pick between Traffic-Aware Cruise Control (TACC), Autosteer and FSD.

If you choose FSD, then Tesla is now requiring single-pull (or single-click for vehicles without stalks), to be chosen as the activation method.

Single-pull activates Autopilot with a single tap of the right stalk. In this case, a double tap doesn't do anything to prevent confusion.

Since a double tap doesn't do anything, the driver is no longer able to activate TACC without turning off FSD Beta in Autopilot settings.

U-Turns

Tesla U-Turns feature in update 2023.44.30.30
Undocumented
Models:

Undocumented

With FSD Beta v12, the vehicle is now able to complete U-turns when they're part of the route.

Automatic Speed Offset

Tesla Automatic Speed Offset feature in update 2023.44.30.30
Undocumented
Models:

X
Y
Undocumented

Automatic Set Speed Offset allows Autopilot to drive at the speed that it determines is most natural. This considers factors like road type, traffic flow, environmental conditions, speed limit, and the selected Full Self-Driving (Beta) Profile setting (Chill, Average, or Assertive).

This new setting is off by default, but can be turned on under Controls > Autopilot > Automatic Set Speed Offset.

This gives the vehicle more freedom when determining its speed, such as when passing or keeping up with other vehicles.

FSD Beta v12.1

Tesla FSD Beta v12.1 feature in update 2023.44.30.10

2023.44.30 Release Notes

Over-the-Air (OTA) Recall

Tesla Over-the-Air (OTA) Recall feature in update 2023.44.30
Models:
S
3
X
Y

In accordance with a recent recall (campaign #23V-838 for US and #2023-657 for Canada), Tesla is making the following improvements to Autosteer:

- Improved visibility of driver monitoring warning alerts on the touchscreen by increasing the text size and moving the notifications to a more prominent position (Model 3 and Model Y only).

- Added option to activate Autopilot features with a single stalk depression, instead of two, to help simplify activation and disengagement.

- Increased the strictness of driver attentiveness requirements when using Autosteer and approaching traffic lights and stops signs off-highway.

- Introduced a Suspension Policy that will restrict Autosteer usage for one week if improper usage is detected. Improper usage is when you, or another driver of your vehicle, receive five "Forced Autopilot Disengagements."

You are the driver. As the driver, you must be vigilant to the road, keep your hands on the wheel, and be ready to intervene to maintain safety.

Autopilot Suspension

Tesla Autopilot Suspension feature in update 2023.44.30
Models:
S
3
X
Y

For maximum safety and accountability, use of Autopilot features will be suspended if improper usage is detected. Improper usage is when you, or another driver of your vehicle, receive five ‘Forced Autopilot Disengagements’. A disengagement is when the Autopilot system disengages for the remainder of a trip after the driver receives several audio and visual warnings for inattentiveness. Driver-initiated disengagements do not count as improper usage and are expected from the driver. Keep your hands on the wheel and remain attentive at all times. Use of any hand-held devices while using Autopilot is not allowed.

Autopilot features can only be removed per this suspension method and they will be unavailable for approximately one week.

FSD Beta 11.4.9

Tesla FSD Beta 11.4.9 feature in update 2023.44.30
Models:
S
3
X
Y

-Added option to activate Autopilot with a single stalk depression, instead of two, to help simplify activation and disengagement.

-Introduced a new efficient video module to the vehicle detection, semantics, velocity, and attributes networks that allowed for increased performance at lower latency.This was achieved by creating a multi-layered, hierarchical video module that caches intermediate computations to dramatically reduce the amount of compute that happens at any particular time.

-Improved distant crossing object detections by an additional 6%, and improved the precision of vehicle detection by refreshing old datasets with better autolabeling and introducing the new video module.

-Improved the precision of cut-in vehicle detection by 15%, with additional data and the changes to the video architecture that improve performance and latency.

-Reduced vehicle velocity error by 3%, and reduced vehicle acceleration error by 10%, by improving autolabeled datasets, introducing the new video module, and aligning model training and inference more closely.

-Reduced the latency of the vehicle semantics network by 15% with the new video module architecture, at no cost to performance.

-Reduced the error of pedestrian and bicycle rotation by over 8% by leveraging object kinematics more extensively when jointly optimizing pedestrian and bicycle tracks in autolabeled datasets.

-Improved geometric accuracy of Vision Park Assist predictions by 16%, by leveraging 10x more HW4 data, tripling resolution, and increasing overall stability of measurements.

-Improved path blockage lane change accuracy by 10% due to updates to static object detection networks.

- Introduced Automatic Emergency Braking on general obstacles detected by Occupancy Network.

The cabin camera above your rearview mirror can now determine driver inattentiveness and provide you with audible alerts, to remind you to keep your eyes on the road when Autopilot is engaged. Camera images do not leave the vehicle itself, which means the system cannot save or transmit information unless you enable data sharing. To change your data settings, tap Controls > Software > Data Sharing on your car's touchscreen.

With Single Pull, when you cancel Autosteer (Beta) or Full Self-Driving (Beta), whether you take over the steering or push up the stalk one time - you'll immediately return to manual driving.

As with all Autopilot features, you must continue to pay attention and be ready to take immediate action including canceling the feature and returning to manual driving.
