San Francisco:A Tesla vehicle using the Full Self-Driving (FSD) beta was filmed hitting a pole in what may be the first crash on the FSD beta, according to a media report.
According to automotive technology website Electrek, CEO Elon Musk said last month that Tesla’s FSD Beta had been crash-free for more than a year in the program.
This is despite the fact that a Model Y owner in the FSD beta claimed in a complaint to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) that the system caused an accident, but the complaint did not could be confirmed.
Now, an FSD Beta driver going by AI Addict on Youtube has posted a new video where the car hit a pole that protects the bike path.
“It was a small accident that caused little damage to the paint, but it technically crashed into an object,” the report said.
It is important to note that Tesla takes no responsibility for the “Full Self-Driving Beta”.
It is believed to be an early version of Tesla’s self-driving software which is currently being tested by a fleet of Tesla owners selected by the company and through its “safety test score”.
The software allows the vehicle to navigate autonomously to a destination entered into the car’s navigation system, but the driver remains responsible for the vehicle and must remain alert and ready to take control at all times.
