Tesla FSD 11.3.3 Giving More Comfortable Rides With Zero Interventions

There is more videos showing that Tesla FSD 11.3.3 is giving more zero-intervention rides in challenging urban driving conditions. The drivers who are monitoring the rides feel the car is being driven in a way where they feel comfortable and confident with the FSD system.

There is still the need to improve traffic flow awareness.

  1. It still is 50 /50 on handling roundabouts. It stops at the entrance yield when no one is coming and will stop or slow to give up right of way while in the roundabout if another car is waiting to enter. It will also try to enter when a car does come around in the roundabout. I don’t think they worked on roundabouts specifically at all lately.

  2. Are there any videos of self-driving cars operating in non-ideal weather?
    Ie: wet or snowy or icy pavement, rain or fog reducing visibility, etc.

  3. 11.3.3 is better than 10.69.x for sure in urban areas, but I still need to intervene multiple time per mile in dense Los Angeles urban scenarios. Unprotected left turns in dense urban environments are still terrifying. This appears due to camera hardware limitations that require the car to creep into the lane of traffic to have visibility of cross traffic.

    • Struggles with unprotected turns with limited visibility such as when there are legally parked cars on the street.
      Lots of wrong lane selection decisions; it does correct but way too late
      Lots of random uses of the blinker for no apparent reason on streets and now the highway. (E.g. one lane streets)
      Attempts to go around traffic thinking that there is just a stopped car.
      Stopping at the limit line correctly every time is still an issue.
      Waiting to long at a stop sign is an issue; it confuses the other drivers.

      Highway driving feels more natural now versus being on rails. Lane changes to exit occur too soon for my preference.

      • In terms of hardware. It feels like Tesla needs cameras mounted at the top left and right of the windshield to get more visibility of the sides and around cars in front. This will help with unprotected turn scenarios as well as knowing there is a parked car in a lane of traffic or simply traffic.

        Use of repeaters with better FOV mount down low doesn’t seem ideal for visibility for unprotected turns. Scenarios such as coming out of a driveway with an adjacent parked car. Having the cameras mounted higher can help avoid visibility from being blocked.

        • Tesla is deliberately only giving their computer the sensory input a human would have available, on the basis that the road system is specifically designed to be navigable by humans, and so it should never require more data than a human has to navigate it. This is forcing the development of their self-driving system, it can’t substitute data for reasoning.

          Once it reaches human equivalent or better, with only the data that would be available to a human, they can then give it data that wouldn’t be available to a human, and it will have superhuman performance.
