Last week Tesla sent out a beta software update called "Full Self-Driving" to a select group of customers. This release is expected to comprise of improvements to the company's Autopilot – and include advanced driver-assist features designed for local, non-highway streets. While this is a remarkable engineering feat and a courageous move, it is also a dangerous one. 

on October 21, the company released a beta software update to selected Tesla owners called Full Self Driving (FSD). The problem is the same as before: the name is misleading, as the vehicles can't drive themselves. A disclaimer on Tesla's website confirms this, saying that the Autopilot system doesn't make the vehicles autonomous, and drivers must still supervise it.

In 2020 Euro NCAP launched a comprehensive Assisted Driving (AD) grading system intending to inform consumers about the best AD systems currently available, and more importantly, highlighting their technological limitations. In the classification system, points are deducted for misleading names. This may be one of the reasons the Tesla Model 3 only finished in sixth place.
