2023.26.11 Release Notes (FSD Beta v11.4.4)

Cabin Camera
New Feature

for Model S, 3, X and Y

The cabin camera above your rearview mirror can now detect and alert driver inattentiveness while Autopilot is engaged. Camera data does not leave the car itself, which means the system cannot save or transmit information unless data shared is enabled. To change your data settings, tap Controls > Safety & Security > Data Sharing on your car’s touchscreen.


FSD Self-Driving (Beta)
Autopilot Improvements

for Model S, 3, X and Y (Not available in Germany)

You can enable Full Self-Driving (Beta) by tapping ‘Control’ > ‘Autopilot’ > ‘Full Self-Driving (Beta)’ and following the instructions.

Full Self-Driving is in early limited access Beta and must be used with additional caution. It may do the wrong thing at the worst time, so you must always keep your hands on the wheel and pay extra attention to the road. Do not become complacent. When Full Self-Driving is enabled your vehicle will make lane changes off highway, select forks to follow your navigation route, navigate around other vehicles and objects, and make left and right turns. Use Full Self-Driving in limited Beta only if you will pay constant attention to the road, and be prepared to act immediately, especially around blind corners, crossing intersections, and in narrow driving situations.

Your vehicle is running on Tesla Vision! Note that Tesla Vision also includes some temporary limitations, follow distance is limited to 2-7 and Autopilot top speed is 85 mph.


FSD Beta v11.4.4 Release Notes
Autopilot Improvements

for Model S, 3, X and Y (Not available in Germany)

– Improved short-deadline lane changes, to avoid going off-route, through better modeling of target lane vehicles to improve gap selection assertiveness.

– Improved offset consistency when controlling for static obstacles. Also improved smoothness when changing offset direction by adjusting speed more comfortably.

– Improved handling of oncoming cars on narrow unmarked roads by improving prediction of oncoming car’s trajectory and leaving enough room for them to pass before re-centering.

– Improved Occupancy Flow prediction from the Occupancy Network for arbitrary moving obstacles by 8%.

– Expanded usage of the new object ground truth autolabeler for the NonVRU detection model, improving distant vehicle recall and geometry precision for semi-trucks, trailers, and exotic vehicles.

– Improved VRU control by expanding planning scope to control gently for low-confidence detections that may interfere with ego’s path.

– Improved handling for VRUs near crosswalks by predicting their future intent more accurately. This was done by leveraging more kinematic data to improve association between crosswalks and VRUs.

– Improved ego’s behavior near VRUs by tuning their assumed kinematic properties and utilizing available semantic information to classify more accurately their probability of intersecting ego’s path.

– Improved Automatic Emergency Braking recall in response to cut-in vehicles and vehicles behind ego while reversing.


Driving Visualization Improvements
Autopilot Improvements

for Model S, 3, X and Y (Not available in Germany)

To view an expanded driving visualization when in drive with Full Self-Driving enabled, drag the light gray visualization bar to the right.


Full Self-Driving (Beta) Suspension
Autopilot Improvements

for Model S, 3, X and Y (Not available in Germany)

For maximum safety and accountability, use of Full Self-Driving (Beta) 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.
