Tesla FSD Beta 10.7 Release Notes Leaked

By Nuno Cristovao

Tesla has been releasing FSD Beta updates on a semi-regular schedule, about once every two weeks. The latest version is 10.6.1, but it was only rolled out to select beta testers. Most FSD testers are still on beta 10.5.

According to Elon Musk, Tesla is set to release FSD Beta 10.8 this week, skipping over version 10.7.

However, it looks like v10.7 was released internally, as the technical release notes have now been leaked to Sawyer Merritt on Twitter.

FSD Beta 10.7 is version 2021.44.5.5. The technical release notes state:

- Improved object attributes network to reduce false cut-in slowdowns by 50% and lane assignment error by 19%.

- Improved photon-to-control vehicle response latency by 20% on average.

- Expanded use of regenerative braking in Autopilot down to 0mph for smoother stops and improved energy efficiency.

- Improved VRU (pedestrians, bicyclists, motorcycles, animals) lateral velocity error by 4.9% by adding more auto-labeled and simulated training examples to the dataset.

- Reduced false slowdowns for crossing objects by improved velocity estimates for objects at the end of visibility. Reduced false slowdowns by adding geometric checks to cross-validate lane assignment of objects.

- Improved speed profile for unprotected left turns when visibility is low.

- Added more natural behavior to bias over bike lanes during right turns.

- Improved comfort when yielding to jaywalkers by better modelling of stopping region with soft and hard deadlines.

- Improved smoothness for merge control with better modelling of merge point and ghost objects positioned at the edge of visibility

- Improved overall comfort by enforcing stricter lateral jerk bounds in trajectory optimizer.

- Improved short deadline lane changes through richer trajectory modeling.

- Improved integration between lead vehicle overtake and lane change gap selection.

- Updated trajectory line visualization.

There are a lot of changes in this FSD release. Based on the release notes it sounds like this release may help fix some of the larger complaints testers have had, mainly around false slowdowns and jerkiness when taking a turn.

It looks like there will also be an updated visualization for the car's trajectory, which we will be sure to add to our full list of FSD Beta visualizations.

Tesla is set to release beta 10.8 with the holiday update as early as this Tuesday. Between the FSD Beta release and the new holiday features, it's likely to be the most anticipated and exciting release of 2021.

Watch Elon talk about the future of Tesla on today's earnings call

By Nuno Cristovao

Tesla is set to report its fourth-quarter earnings after the market closes today. The call is scheduled to begin at 2:30pm PT.

This event is going to be an exciting one for several reasons. Elon Musk is scheduled to be on this earnings call. Elon has recently stopped attending earnings calls regularly to help free up some of this time.

The fact that Elon has decided to attend this call could mean that Tesla is going to make a major announcement.

Tesla has also said that they will be revealing their future roadmap during today's earnings call.

There has been a lot of speculation about when the Cybertruck will start production and what the final version of the Cybertruck will look like.

Just a few days ago there were photos and videos of the latest Cybertruck prototype that showed off the truck's windshield wiper, side-view mirrors, and the lack of door handles.

At the very least, we expect Tesla to provide a more concrete timeline for the Cybertruck, the Tesla Semi, and maybe even mention the Tesla Roadster 2.0.

I would not expect Tesla to unveil any major new products at this event since Tesla typically holds a separate event for those occasions, but we expect there will still be a lot to talk about after this call.
