Tesla CEO Elon Musk criticized the company's latest driver assistance beta, FSD Beta 9.2, on Twitter.

Musk wrote: FSD 9.2 beta is not very good. But the robotics and AI team is moving to improve as quickly as possible.

"We are working hard to build a single layer on both the highway and city streets," he added. But it requires a lot of retraining of the neural network.

The company sells full self-driving or FSD packages in the US for $10,000 and $199 per month, respectively.

Unless the attentive driver is behind the wheel, advanced driver assistance systems will not make electric Tesla cars safe to use.

The FSD pilot is applicable to Tesla employees and some drivers who have already purchased an FSD. The beta version contains new or recently revised functions that have been added to the vehicle's advanced driver assistance functions.

Drivers generally undertake to keep their experiences confidential. Although the beta version of FSD allows some general users to post videos on social media showing and criticizing the latest features they have tried on the streets of the United States.

Regulators could one day decide that untrained drivers are not allowed to test vehicles on public roads. However, there are currently no laws in place that would interfere with Tesla's ability to turn its customers and everyone who shares the road with them into skilled people.

A few days ago, at an event called Tesla Artificial Intelligence Day, Musk praised Tesla's strengths in independent systems and components and posted critical tweets.

At the event, the company presented a chip that is specifically used to build artificial intelligence networks in data centers. The chip is designed to teach the model to automatically recognize various obstacles on the road in the video recorded by the Tesla car's camera.

Among other things, fully autonomous driving is sold out today and promises to enable the company's vehicles to automatically change lanes, drive on highways, park in or out of parking spaces and short bike distances.

The company said that fully autonomous driving will provide the ability to automatically navigate city streets later this year. This is a long-awaited feature.

Musk's critical tweet was also posted after the US Federal Vehicle Safety Agency opened a formal investigation into the self-driving system last week.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration found that the company's self-driving vehicles have crashed into ambulances at least 11 times in the United States. At least 17 people were injured and one person died.

The investigation aims to determine whether the autopilot has a security flaw that could force Tesla to make changes.

Plus, the National Transportation Safety Board said late last week: Manufacturers should honestly report what their technology can and can't do, whether it's Tesla or someone else.
