Tesla’s Revamped Self-Driving Software Will Go Into Beta Testing Next Week

Tesla’s long-awaited, revamped Autopilot is moving one step closer to becoming a reality.

After years in development and no shortage of serious setbacks, the California-based electric car giant is set to begin beta testing its new self-driving software next week. Following a complete system rewrite, the select group of chosen drivers will gain access to the update, which will include Full Self-Driving (FSD) mode, a significant advance from previous editions. In April, founder Elon Musk announced that the autonomous feature would be publicly available by the end of 2020, but that deadline is fast approaching.

Getting fully operational is critical for the automaker on more than one front. Not only will it be a boon to the company for being the first major marque to have such autonomous driving widely available, but it is also a necessity before Tesla can deploy the self-driving taxis it hopes to have on the road in a handful of markets sometime next year.

There isn’t any word yet on how long testing will proceed, but it will most likely need to be extensive if Tesla hopes to bring the program to market smoothly. Its many revisions and missed deadlines have raised eyebrows in the auto industry, though not nearly as much as the multiple fatal collisions that have occurred while previous generations of its Autopilot were in use.

None of that news seems to have dissuaded investors, however. Even during the worst phase of the coronavirus pandemic so far, Tesla has performed phenomenally well even as its competitors have struggled. Rally after

ASX’s ‘atrocious’ revamped website a ‘huge fail’

The new ASX website has got off to a disastrous start — crashing, not showing company announcements, missing old features — and users aren’t happy.

The site has a sleeker look than the old one but has far less at-a-glance market data on its home page, with the standard ASX200 prices list seemingly axed.

A company spokesman recommended users set up their own personal watchlist instead.

As the trading session opened, the bourse tweeted: “ASX announcements are currently not displaying on the ASX website. All company announcements are available to view via brokers and news agencies.”

“Huge fail for the @ASX,” @eadatt tweeted while @SmallCapEagle labelled the new website “atrocious” and implored: “Kindly put the old one back.”

“The new website is a disaster! One can no longer easily see that there is a company announcement relevant to a particular security on their watchlist, there are no longer ‘sector comparisons’ on the page of a particular security, the feedback page or investors page won’t open …” @cnboston wrote.

Another user wrote: “Where is the multiple price search on the new website? Can anyone point me in the right direction? Help!”

Shareholder activist Stephen Mayne was also critical.

“The old ASX website had an archive of every listed company announcement back to 1998 – the new version launched over the weekend starts at 2016. Let’s hope they fix this – fast,” he wrote.
