Episode 2 - Autopilot and Tesla FSD Beta

In this episode, Nash from Tesla in the Gong and I are joined by our Guests: Mark @codingmark and Glen @glenmah to discuss the Full Self Driving Beta. We unpack the experience that @codingmark has had in a Tesla Model X with the Full Self Driving Beta software in California and dive deep into the specifics of how this software release compares to the present Full Self Driving Package Autopilot software suite that the rest of the Tesla Owner community has experienced.Timeline0:00 - Intro5:08 - An introduction to our Tesla Vehicles15:08 - Autopilot in 2019 16:05 - 3 Sections of the FSD Beta Breakdown16:21 - Section 1: FSD Beta in a Residential area18:08 - Section 2 : FSD Beta transitions from Residential to Downtown19:40 - An Area of improvement : Older Downtown areas20:13 - FSD Beta and Roundabouts21:42 - FSD Beta and Hilly Terrain23:32 - Is the FSD Beta tentative?24:42 - FSD Beta Real time decision making - Construction Zones26:33 - Melbourne Hook Turn28:03 - Diverging Diamond Interchange30:03 - Autopilot Rewrite?30:34 - 4D Autopilot Time Element?
