Tesla: FSD version 10.9 works wonders, except in front of traffic cones

FSD, Tesla’s fully autonomous driving technology, has moved to version 10.9. Toni, owner of a vehicle of the brand, regularly posts videos on YouTube showing the progress and the problems of Full Self Driving. In his latest video, we can see how the FSD is still struggling with certain elements, such as traffic cones and certain lights.

Since January 17, 2022, Tesla has deployed version 10.9 of FSD (Full Self Driving), its fully autonomous driving technology. As we reported in our columns, this update only brings minor corrections, with interface improvements or even more natural corner entry.

Toni, a Tesla owner, is also a YouTuber and regularly posts videos on his channel dedicated to Tesla’s flagship technology. With each new FSD update, the videographer takes to the streets of Detroit to see progress/setbacks and problems with fully autonomous driving.

Overall, the FSD works wonders and controls the vehicle smoothly. Only and as you can notice in the video, the FSD is in trouble in certain situations. At the start of his journey, for example, Toni comes across a car on warning just in front of him. The FSD stops the Tesla from a safe distance, but then does nothing. Toni is therefore forced to regain control of the vehicle to get around the stopped car.

The FSD is improving, but the failures are still numerous

After about ten minutes of video, we can see the car stop automatically at a stop sign. Still happy, you say. Only for Toni this is a noticeable improvement sincehe had already encountered problems at this intersection where the FSD did not proceed to the stop. As a reminder, since October 2021, the FSD has offered several driving profiles. One of them has justly caused controversy because of his tendency to make slipped stop signs and not to respect certain rules of the highway code.

Another problem highlighted by the video, we notice that the Tesla stops in the middle of the road because of a red light located on its left. As Toni points out, this traffic light does not relate to its lane, in fact the FSD should not take it into account.

Also, for Toni, the FSD engages at too high a speed on speed bumps and speed bumps (at 15 miles per hour, or about 25 km/h). Finally and you can see it at 14 mn and 45 seconds of the video, the Tesla goes down the wrong lane and narrowly brushes traffic poles. In any case and without Toni’s intervention, the car would have hit them. However, we can see that on the second pass, the FSD noticed the presence of the cones (once again it entered the wrong lane on the pass) and maneuvered correctly to get around them. As you will have understood, Tesla still has work to do before offering a perfectly autonomous and safe experience with the FSD.
