Tesla FSD Strengths and Limitations

Tesla's Full Self-Driving (FSD) is a highly debated topic. It relies on an extensive suite of cameras, radar, and ultrasonic sensors to perceive its environment and processes data through powerful neural networks, allowing the car to make decisions about driving actions. FSD is currently in beta testing, meaning it's continuously being improved. Updates are rolled out to testers who provide feedback to Tesla.

FSD shines on highways, handling lane changes, merging, navigating on and off ramps, and generally reducing driver fatigue on long journeys. FSD Beta is expanding into more complex city driving scenarios, handling things like turns, stop signs, traffic lights, and roundabouts. The concept behind FSD is exciting, promising a future where cars can navigate autonomously, potentially improving safety and convenience.

FSD is not true self-driving. It's a driver-assist system and requires constant human supervision. You must be ready to take over at any moment. Performance can be inconsistent. It might be brilliant at times, but make odd or unpredictable mistakes in other situations. FSD can struggle with unusual scenarios (construction zones, emergency vehicles, etc.), as it may not have been trained on enough of these "edge case" situations. The name "Full Self-Driving" is misleading, leading some owners to overestimate the capabilities and leading to potential safety concerns.

FSD is an expensive upgrade ($15,000 currently). It's important to weigh if the features are worth the cost for your individual needs. True…
