Tesla Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) has launched its beta version of the full-self driving package for its cars.

As per the video caption by the Twitter user, the car was not driven manually by a human for even a single second. It fully moved under the software control and went from one parking lot to the other entirely by using the Autopilot technology using just the cameras to drive the car. The user tagged Tesla’s CEO – Elon Musk, in the tweet.

The same thread also consisted of a real-time video, that was later uploaded on YouTube. It also mentioned that people should not blindly trust the self-driving feature and there must be a driver all the time while driving the car in Autopilot mode for safety purpose.

Whole Mars Catalog’s tweet grabbed Musk’s attention who replied saying how remarkable it is to realise few people have realised this capability.

The FSD beta version had been in the news since Musk last tweeted about it.  However, considering possible mishaps that can take place with this advanced technology, Tesla is taking careful steps with the release of its FSD v10.0.1 technology in the market. Musk said that the customers will be granted beta access on their driving behavior.
