The launch of the final version of Full Self-Driving in the United States is scheduled for mid-December this year.
The American company Tesla has begun beta testing a new autopilot - the Full Self-Driving system. Elon Musk announced this on his Twitter, adding that the development will be implemented "very slowly and carefully."
The details of the new autonomous control system are not yet known. Most likely, Full Self-Driving will expand the capabilities of the proactive response to traffic signals and road signs. Together with the Navigate on Autopilot function, this will give Tesla cars the ability to move without driver intervention, not only on highways, but also on city streets.
So far, beta testing is taking place on a limited number of vehicles. Extended trials will kick off in four to six weeks, and the final version of Full Self-Driving is slated to launch in the United States in mid-December this year. The fate of the Tesla Network robotic taxi service, which may appear as early as next year, largely depends on the successful implementation of the new autopilot.
FSD beta rollout happening tonight. Will be extremely slow & cautious, as it should.

It is worth noting that initially Elon Musk promised to make Tesla cars fully autonomous by 2017. Apparently, the proverb “they wait for the promised three years” is about him.
Earlier, Elon Musk spoke about the features of the inhabited base on Mars and showed a render of the new Tesla plant in Germany.
