How does Tesla’s self-driving software work?

Built on a deep neural network, Autopilot uses cameras and ultrasonic sensors to see and sense the environment around the car.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk said on Saturday that the electric car company is raising the price of its ‘full self-driving (FSD) software to $12,000.

In a tweet, Musk said that the new price, which is an increase of $2,000, will take effect on January 17. “Tesla FSD price rising to $12k on Jan 17- Just in the US,” he posted. “FSD price will rise as we get closer to FSD production code release,” Musk added.

Tesla charges a monthly subscription price of $199 for FSD software. Tesla began testing FSD in beta in October 2020, priced at $8,000. It later increased the price to $10,000 The software does not make Tesla vehicles fully autonomous.

Tesla cars come standard with advanced hardware capable of providing Autopilot features, and full self-driving capabilities — through software updates designed to improve functionality over time.

“Built on a deep neural network, Autopilot uses cameras and ultrasonic sensors to see and sense the environment around the car. This robust sensor and camera suite provides drivers with an awareness of their surroundings that a driver alone would not otherwise have. A powerful onboard computer processes these inputs in a matter of milliseconds to help make your driving safer and less stressful,” says Tesla.
