Tesla FSD Beta 10.12 update finally arrives with a long list of improvements

    Tesla’s FSD Beta has gone almost 6 weeks since the last update and finally today, the original group of Beta testers are receiving the FSD Beta 10.12 update.

    This release has a very long list of release notes, leaked online through the week, these include:

    2022.12.3.15 Tesla Release Notes include:

    • Upgraded decision making framework for unprotected left turns with better modeling of objects’ response to ego’s actions by adding more features that shape the go/no-go decision. This increases robustness to noisy measurements while being more sticky to decisions within a safety margin. The framework also leverages median safe regions when necessary to maneuver across large turns and accelerating harder through maneuvers when required to safely exit the intersection.
    • Improved creeping for visibility using more accurate lane geometry and higher resolution occlusion detection.
    • Reduced instances of attempting uncomfortable turns through better integration with object future predictions during lane selection.
    • Upgraded planner to rely less on lanes to enable maneuvering smoothly out of restricted space.
    • Increased safety of turns with crossing traffic by improving the architecture of the lanes neural network which greatly boosted recall and geometric accuracy of crossing lanes.
    • Improved the recall and geometric accuracy of all lane predictions by adding 180k video clips to the training set.
    • Reduced traffic control related false slowdowns through better integration with lane structure and improved behavior with respect to yellow lights.
    • Improved the geometric accuracy of road edge and line predictions by adding a mixing/coupling layer with the generalized static obstacle network.
    • Improved geometric accuracy and understanding of visibility by retraining the generalized static obstacle network with improved data from the autolabeler and by adding 30k more videos clips.
    • Improved recall of motorcycles, reduced velocity error of close-by pedestrians and bicyclists, and reduced heading error of pedestrians by adding new sim and autolabeled data to the training set.
    • Improved precision of the “is parked” attribute on vehicles by adding 41k clips to the training set. Solved 48% of failure cases captured by our telemetry of 10.11.
    • Improved detection recall of far-away crossing objects by regenerating the dataset with improved versions of the neural networks used in the autolabeler which increased data quality.
    • Improved offsetting behavior when maneuvering around cars with open doors.
    • Improved angular velocity and lane-centric velocity for non-VRU objects by upgrading it into network predicted tasks.
    • Improved comfort when lane changing behind vehicles with harsh deceleration by tighter integration between lead vehicles future motion estimate and planned lane change profile.
    • Increased reliance on network-predicted acceleration for all moving objects, previously only longitudinally relevant objects.
    • Updated nearby vehicle assets with visualization indicating when a vehicle has a door open.
    • Improved system frame rate +1.8 frames per second by removing three legacy neural networks.
    • Press the “Video Record” button on the top bar UI to share your feedback. When pressed, your vehicle’s external cameras will share a short VIN-associated Autopilot Snapshot with the Tesla engineering team to help make improvements to FSD. You will not be able to view the clip.

    Once the software is downloaded and installed, we can expect a new round of hands-on YouTube videos of experience with the new build.

    FSD Beta 10.12.1 is now installed in customer cars and the early users are starting to share updates from the release.
