Tesla Set to Release Full Self-Driving Update This Weekend, Expand Beta Fleet in June
Tesla is set to release a new version of the Full Self-Driving Beta program this weekend with software update 10.12, and CEO Elon Musk has even said the automaker could expand the size of the Beta fleet by June.
Tesla has attempted to release updates and enhancements to the Full Self-Driving Beta program every two weeks and has been relatively successful in maintaining that schedule. However, version 10.11 was released in mid-March, so Beta program members are eager for improvements.

It’s time for the latest version of the software to be rolled out to drivers and owners who are part of the FSD Beta Fleet, as software version 10.12 is expected to be released this weekend, according to CEO Elon Musk.
Musk said earlier this week that Tesla would “probably” release the software update for the FSD Beta program this weekend, as it usually falls on a Friday anyway. However, Tesla is somewhat hesitant with the new software version, as Musk said that the 10.12 update includes many updates to the autonomous driving code, which means there are many new trends and behaviors. found during testing. Because the Full Self-Driving suite is a beta program, Tesla employees first assess an update’s readiness before releasing it to the beta fleet. Simple mistakes in the development of the FSD suite could set back the company’s monumental progress by years, and the program is far from perfect.
The beta program also contributes to this by providing Tesla with data and information that could be relevant for the next rollout of the software. With every mile a beta tester drives, Tesla receives valuable insight into driving behaviors that can help predict trends that could prevent a crash later. As Tesla already has more than 100,000 beta program users in its fleet, the automaker already receives huge amounts of information from drivers, which is why the company has been able to make substantial progress over the past two years. in terms of FSD accuracy.
Musk thinks the already large fleet of FSD beta testers could expand as early as next month, he said. “It still needs a little more work,” Musk said, but more users could be introduced in June.
The update is set to introduce more detailed vehicle models, improvements for unprotected left turns, and fixes for a car’s performance in heavy traffic.
