Tesla was taught to “shamay” on the roads


Full Self-Driving (FSD) – Tesla’s most advanced autopilot so far in beta – features three driving profiles that define how the system behaves on the road. As reported by The Verge, with the 10.3.1 update FSD has received “Calm”, “Medium” and “Aggressive” modes. The latter’s name, Assertive, can also be translated as “assertive” or “self-confident”, which fully describes its settings, forcing the electric car to resort to harsh maneuvers more often.

Tesla explained the specifics of each of the new profiles on the mode selection screen. Thus, the “Aggressive” mode assumes a reduction in the distance between the electric car and the vehicle in front and frequent changes to faster lanes. In addition, Tesla will not leave the left lane after overtaking, and will stop completely in front of road signs instructing to stop.

In “Quiet” mode, on the contrary, the autopilot will keep an increased distance and less often change lanes, while “Medium” mode assumes an average distance to the vehicle in front and a complete stop in front of the corresponding signs. According to The Verge, the differences between the two modes are almost imperceptible, which is not the case for “Aggressive” mode.

FSD stands for Full Self-Driving, or “fully autonomous driving”, but only corresponds to the second level according to the SAE classification: such an autopilot requires constant attention from the human driver and the willingness to intervene in the driving process. Tesla opened the FSD to the public last fall, followed by a major recall due to a failure of the automatic emergency braking system, which could have stopped a car on the road and provoke an accident.
