It has been more than 24 hours since Tesla started deploying the FSD Beta stable subversion 10.69.2 (2022.20.15). “Looks good to roll out to all Tesla owners with 10.12.2 (~100k cars),” Tesla CEO Elon Musk tweeted this statement just before the rollout began late Sunday evening.

“Please note that top priority is safety, so expect it to be overly cautious, especially around pedestrians,” Musk told in a preliminary tweet to the above. Pedestrians, cyclists, motorcycles, and such are referred to as vulnerable road users (VRUs) in driver assist/self-driving systems.

Release notes for 10.69.2 are the same as for the main FSD Beta branch 10.69. Both previous versions (10.69 & 10.69.2) were released to a limited number of beta testers but 10.69.2 will be deployed to all the participating users in this early access program.

Interestingly, a beta tester and YouTuber Tesla Joy was still on FSD Beta version 10.12.2, she did get the notification of getting the latest version but it was rolled back to the previous one before getting installed.

Most of the FSD Beta testers will be directly updated to version 10.69.2 from 10.12.2 — completely skipping two versions in between (10.69 & 10.69.2).

As beta testers are getting FSD Beta 10.69.2, they are sharing their experience and first impressions with the latest version. My friend & follower of our website Gail Alfar from Austin, Texas shared the following timelapse video of her FSD Beta 10.69.2 drive that she absolutely loved.

Tesla FSD Beta 10.69.2 drove Gail’s car from the parking lot of the Lyndon Baines Johnson Library to Northwest Austin near the Tesla Service Center on Pond Springs Road (~13 miles / 21 km) without any intervention by her, she told me.

Famous Tesla Community member and FSD Beta tester Dirty Tesla also received the 10.69.2 update and is having a feeling that the drive has improved overall.

“10.69.2 ❤️‍🔥 is spectacular, made a smooth left, a calculated right on red, left, then yield. My mind is blown totally 🤯. Great job Elon Musk & Ashok Elluswamy⚡️,” Gail wrote in the video description.

The hesitancy Dirty Tesla is talking about is the safety precautions that Autopilot is putting on #1 priority.

Another beta tester Kim Paquette took a few drives and she felt “FSD Beta 10.69.2 is really struggling around pedestrians – way over cautious for people just on the sidewalk and not crossing”.

Looks like the new algorithm changes in 10.69.2 is trying really hard to show the world that Tesla Full Self-Driving is safe for pedestrians and VRUs. Perhaps, the Tesla Autopilot software team needs to find a balance in the next version update.

Kim tried multiple times on the same test loop but even in the 2nd attempt she needed to intervene manually, the pedestrian scenario caused several disengagements.
