San Francisco. Tesla will update its driver assist software called Full Self-Driving (FSD) Beta on ‘crash risk’ in about 363,000 vehicles. Tesla will roll out an over-the-air (OTA) software update at no cost to the customer in the coming weeks that will improve the way the FSD beta interacts with driving.
According to a directive from the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the vehicles to be ‘recalled’ are the Model S, Model X, Model 3 and Model Y series.
Elon Musk tweeted about the ‘recall’ saying that Tesla is not recalling any cars.
He posted, “‘Recall’ is not the right word for an over-the-air software update.”
Tesla will simply issue an OTA software update to fix the problems identified in NHTSA’s request.
NHTSA has been investigating Tesla’s driver-assistance technology for several years.
FSD BETA is a driver support feature that can provide steering and braking/acceleration support to the driver under certain operating limits.
On February 7, Tesla decided to conduct a voluntary ‘recall’.
As of February 14, Tesla has identified 18 warranty claims received between May 8, 2019, and September 12, 2022.
Tesla said it is not aware of any injuries or deaths related to the FSD beta.(IANS)
