According to the latest reports, more Tesla owners have the opportunity to request access to the company’s Full Self-Driving (FSD) beta, thanks to the addition of a selection button in its latest update. However, for those who want to get driving assistance software as soon as possible, this is not as easy as smashing that button.
According to a report from Vice on Monday, Tesla’s early access program requires any tester to sign a non-disclosure agreement. The agreement prohibits this group of carefully selected Tesla drivers from speaking to the media and providing test drive services.
Since Tesla does not have a public relations department to handle requests for comment, the media cannot confirm this to the automaker. But this is not surprising information. According to the report, the Early Access Program encourages members to responsibly and selectively share on social media…consider reducing sharing videos and only sharing videos that you think are interesting or worth sharing.
According to reports, basically, as long as the tester shares a video, photo or news about the operation of the FSD, it is the responsibility to fight the critics. But entering the beta version is not free. At present, consumers can get an additional $10,000 when buying a new car or after buying the car, or a monthly subscription. The cost is 99 dollars and 199 dollars, depending on the computer used by the car.
FSD is still a secondary driving assistance system that requires human drivers to always hold the steering wheel and concentrate on it. Critics often point out that Tesla and its CEO Elon Musk’s choice of FSD as a brand is misleading, and it is a problem when it comes to handing over powerful but far from complete software to thousands of public drivers. Everyone on the road, whether they are driving, crossing the road on the sidewalk, or riding a bicycle, is part of the FSD test. Anyone who operates the software has more responsibility than just protecting Tesla’s image.
