A few years ago, Musk was still dreaming that he could call his electric car and it would come to him on its own. Even especially when it’s at the other end of the US. Since then, he hasn’t missed an opportunity to announce that his company is on the cusp of a breakthrough towards full autonomy. Tesla owners can test this in part, called the Full Autonomous Driving (FSD) related function or program.
The reality is different: the name Autopilot sounds more than it is, and FSD is still far from delivering what the name promises or suggests. Now Elon Musk is holding back a little compared to his previous statements. Because the Tesla boss admitted that “driving yourself is a difficult problem.”

Specifically, Musk was working Twitter When asked about version 9 of the full self-driving beta (via the edge). Musk then wrote: “FSD 9 Beta will be shipping soon, I swear!” In the second part of the tweet, he was surprisingly self-critical, saying: “General self-driving is a difficult problem because it requires solving a large portion of AI in the real world. I didn’t expect it to be that difficult, but the difficulty is clearly in the past. Nothing has more degrees of freedom than reality.”
There has always been criticism in the professional world that Tesla tests its system in free traffic or that it is tested by customers. Another problem is that many people consider autopilot to be complete autonomy.
A video from China recently showed where that could lead – specifically to a ditch or a tree Weibo Back. There’s a Tesla autopilot or driver trying a steep curve, but the Tesla Model 3 doesn’t brake enough and ends up with a total chamfer. This is also no exception as a user by the name of greentheonly appears in multiple videos Twitter proof.
