Tesla 2022.20 Software Updates and Release Notes

Last updated 04-Oct-2022

Tesla issue a new sigificant software update or release to the cars typically every 4-6 weeks. For each of these significant releases there may be many permutations, but the release notes rarely change between the versions. Rather than list the same content multiple times, we aggregate the release notes into a release family. You can select the more specific changes for a minor release by clicking on it's number although these are often just bug fixes.

How to get the latest Tesla Software Update?

In a word, you can't force it yourself although you can help the car to download the update once it's been allocated to have an update. To do so, connect the car to wifi, and maybe even consider a wireless hotspot when in use. Car's not connected to wifi generally do not receive updates quickly.

Why do I not get some of the features or changes mentioned?

There are a number of reasons why a particular feature or change may not be included when your car upgrades. These include regional restrictions, hardware specific features, model specific updates and some changes are linked to software options purchased such as EAP or FSD. There are also times when software release notes are provided but only Tesla test engineers get the updates.

Cabin Camera

Cabin Camera

The cabin camera above your rearview mirror can now detect and alert driver inattentiveness and provide you with audible alerts to remind you to keep your etes on the road when Autopilot is engaged. Camera images do not leave the car itself, which means that the system cannot save or transmit information unless you enable data sharing. To change your data settings, tap Controls > Software > Data Sharing on your car's touchscreen. Cabin Camera does not perform facial recognition or any other method of identity verification.

Dynamic Brake Lights

Dynamic Brake Lights

If you are driving over 50 km/h (31 mph) and brake forcefully, the brake lights will now flash quickly to warn other drivers that your car is rapidly slowing down. If your car stops completely, the hazard warning lights will flash until you press the accelerator or manually press the hazard warning lights button to turn them off.

This was first seen as far back as 2019 in some countries, the rest of the world are finally playing catch up.

FSD Beta v10.69.1

FSD Beta v10.69.1

Added a new "deep lane guidance" module to the Vector Lanes neural network which fuses features extracted from the video streams with coarse map data, i.e. lane counts and lane connectivities. This architecture achieves a 44% lower error rate on lane topology compared to the previous model, enabling smoother control before lanes and their connectivities becomes visually apparent. This provides a way to make every Autopilot drive as good as someone driving their own commute, yet in a sufficiently general way that adapts for road changes.

Improved overall driving smoothness, without sacrificing latency, through better modeling of system and actuation latency in trajectory planning. Trajectory planner now independently accounts for latency from steering commands to actual steering actuation, as well as acceleration and brake commands to actuation. This results in a trajectory that is a more accurate model of how the vehicle would drive. This allows better downstream controller tracking and smoothness while also allowing a more accurate response during harsh maneuvers.

Improved unprotected left turns with more appropriate speed profile when approaching and exiting median crossover regions, in the presence of high speed cross traffic ("Chuck Cook style" unprotected left turns). This was done by allowing optimisable initial jerk, to mimic the harsh pedal press by a human, when required to go in front of high speed objects. Also improved lateral profile approaching such safety regions to allow for better pose that aligns well for exiting the region. Finally, improved interaction with objects that are entering or waiting inside the median crossover region with better modeling of their future intent.

Added control for arbitrary low-speed moving volumes from Occupancy Network. This also enables finer control for more precise object shapes that cannot be easily represented by a cuboid primitive. This required predicting velocity at every 3D voxel. We may now control for slow-moving UFOs.

Upgraded Occupancy Network to use video instead of images from single time step. This temporal context allows the network to be robust to temporary occlusions and enables prediction of occupancy flow. Also, improved ground truth with semantics-driven outlier rejection, hard example mining, and increasing the dataset size by 2.4x.

Upgraded to a new two-stage architecture to produce object kinematics (e.g. velocity, acceleration, yaw rate) where network compute is allocated O(objects) instead of O(space). This improved velocity estimates for far away crossing vehicles by 20%, while using one tenth of the compute.

Increased smoothness for protected right turns by improving the association of traffic lights with slip lanes vs yield signs with slip lanes. This reduces false slowdowns when there are no relevant objects present and also improves yielding position when they are present.

Reduced false slowdowns near crosswalks. This was done with improved understanding of pedestrian and bicyclist intent based on their motion.

Improved geometry error of ego-relevant lanes by 34% and crossing lanes by 21% with a full Vector Lanes neural network update. Information bottlenecks in the network architecture were eliminated by increasing the size of the per-camera feature extractors, video modules, internals of the autoregressive decoder, and by adding a hard attention mechanism which greatly improved the fine position of lanes.

Made speed profile more comfortable when creeping for visibility, to allow for smoother stops when protecting for potentially occluded objects.

Improved recall of animals by 34% by doubling the size of the auto-labeled training set.
Enabled creeping for visibility at any intersection where objects might cross ego's path, regardless of presence of traffic controls.

Improved accuracy of stopping position in critical scenarios with crossing objects, by allowing dynamic resolution in trajectory optimization to focus more on areas where finer control is essential.

Increased recall of forking lanes by 36% by having topological tokens participate in the attention operations of the autoregressive decoder and by increasing the loss applied to fork tokens during training.

Improved velocity error for pedestrians and bicyclists by 17%, especially when ego is making a turn, by improving the onboard trajectory estimation used as input to the neural network.

Improved recall of object detection, eliminating 26% of missing detections for far away crossing vehicles by tuning the loss function used during training and improving label quality.

Improved object future path prediction in scenarios with high yaw rate by incorporating yaw rate and lateral motion into the likelihood estimation. This helps with objects turning into or away from ego's lane, especially in intersections or cut-in scenarios.

Improved speed when entering highway by better handling of upcoming map speed changes, which increases the confidence of merging onto the highway.

Reduced latency when starting from a stop by accounting for lead vehicle jerk.

Enabled faster identification of red light runners by evaluating their current kinematic state against their expected braking profile.

Press the "Video Record" button on the top bar UI to share your feedback. When pressed, your vehicle's external cameras will share a short VIN-associated Autopilot Snapshot with the Tesla engineering team to help make improvements to FSD. You will not be able to view the clip.

FSD Beta v10.69.1.1

FSD Beta v10.69.1.1

We have reset the "Force Autopilot Disengagements" counter on your vehicle to 0.

For maximum safety and accountability, use of Full Self-Driving (Beta) will be suspended if improper usage is detected. Improper usage is when you, or another driver of your vehicle, receive five 'Forced Autopilot Disengagements'. A disengagement is when the Autopilot system disengages for the remainder of a trip after the driver receives several audio and visual warnings for inattentiveness. Driver-initiated disengagements do not count as improper usage and are expected from the driver. Keep your hands on the wheel and remain attentive at all times. Use of any hand-held devices while using Autopilot is not allowed.

FSD Beta v10.69.2

FSD Beta v10.69.2

Bug fixes and tweaks to FSD Beta v10.69.1

Elon Musk stating that the release would be available to employees initially before becoming more widely available.

He has also stated a focus on safety, so we assume this is bug fixes for items like the pedestrian safety issues found.

Green Traffic Light Chime

Green Traffic Light Chime

A chime will play when the traffic light you are waiting for turns green. If you are waiting behind another car, the chime will play once the car advances unless Traffic-Aware Cruise Control or Autosteer is active. When Traffic Light and Stop Sign Control is activated, a chime will play when you can confirm to proceed through a green traffic light. To enable, tap Controls > Autopilot > Green Traffic Light Chime. Note: This chime is only designed as a notification. It is the drvier's responsibility to observe their environment and make decisions accordingly.

Language Support

Your navigation voice guidance is now available in Turkish. To switch your language setting, tap Controls > Display > Voice Navigation Language. Your navigation voice guidance is now available in Polish. To switch your language setting, tap Controls > Display > Voice Navigation Language.

Seat Belt Enhancement

Seat Belt Enhancement

This enhancement builds upon your vehicle's superior crash protection - based upon regulatory and industry standard crash testing, but using Tesla Vision to help offer some of the most cutting-edge seatbelt pretensioner performance in the event of a frontal crash. Your seatbelt will now begin to tighten and protect properly restrained occupants earlier in a wider array of frontal crashes.

Sentry Mode

Sentry Mode

Sentry Mode continuously monitors your car’s surroundings while it’s locked and parked. When enabled, the car automatically enters the Standby state while its cameras and sensors remain powered to detect potential threats and trigger an appropriate response state: Alert or Panic. To enable Sentry Mode, go to Controls > Safety > Sentry Mode. If a minimal threat is detected, such as someone leaning on your car, Sentry Mode switches to the Alert state, displaying a message on your touchscreen indicating that cameras are recording. If a major threat is detected, such as someone breaking a window, Sentry Mode switches to the Panic state. In this state, the touchscreen increases to maximum brightness, and you receive a notification on your mobile app. To save the video clip captured while in Sentry Mode, you must insert a formatted USB flash drive into one of your USB ports beforehand. Sentry Mode requires more than 20% battery to operate. If your battery falls below 20% while the feature is active, Sentry Mode turns off and you receive a notification on your mobile app. Note that Sentry Mode is designed to enhance the security of your car, but cannot protect your car from all possible threats.

This update is for countries where Sentry mode was previously not approved, i.e. Israel.

Speed Assist

Speed Assist

Speed Assist now leverages your car's cameras to detect speed limit signs. This improves the accuracy of speed limit data on local roads and highways in select countries. Detected speed limit signs will be displayed in the driving visualisation

Speed Assist #2

Speed Assist #2

Your vehicle is now running Tesla Vision! It will rely on camera vision coupled with neural net processing to deliver certain Autopilot and active safety features. Vehicles using Tesla Vision have received top safety ratings, and fleet data shows that it provides overall enhanced safety for our customers. Note that, with Tesla Vision, available following distance settings are from 2-7 and Autosteer top speed is 85 mph (140 km/h).

Tesla Adaptive Suspension

Tesla Adaptive Suspension

Tesla Adaptive Suspension will now adjust ride height for an upcoming rough road section. This adjustment may occur at various locations, subject to availability, as the vehicle downloads rough road map data generated by Tesla cars. The instrument cluster will continue to indicate when the suspension is raised for comfort. To enable this feature, tap Controls > Suspension > Adaptive Suspension Damping, and select the Comfort or Auto setting.

Tesla Vision Update

Tesla Vision Update

Your vehicle is now running Tesla Vision! It will rely on camera vision coupled with neural net processing to deliver certain Autopilot and active safety features. Vehicles using Tesla Vision have received top safety ratings, and fleet data shows that it provides overall enhanced safety for our customers. Note that, with Tesla Vision, available following distance settings are from 2-7 and Autosteer top speed is 85 mph (140 km/h).

One consequence of the release is when engaging autopilot, auto wipers and auto headlight highbeam will engage automatically. Given the performance of these features this can cause problems, and while they can be turned off once autopilot is engaged, they will automatically re-engage when autopilot is next activated.

Strangely, some cars are getting this tagged as an element of 2022.20 but it only appears after they have upgraded to 2022.24

Tire Configuration

Tire Configuration

Reset the learned tire settings directly after a tire rotation, swap, or replacement to improve your driving experience. To reset, tap Controls > Service > Wheel & Tire Configuration > Tires.
