Nov 24 (Reuters) – Tesla Inc’s Full
Self-Driving Beta software is now available to everyone in North
America, Elon Musk said early on Thursday, as the automaker
awaits regulatory approval for its cars to be driven without
human oversight.

“Tesla Full Self-Driving Beta is now available to anyone in
North America who requests it from the car screen, assuming you
have bought this option,” Musk tweeted.

Tesla did not respond to a request for comment.

Musk said last month that Tesla’s advanced driver assistant
software would not gain regulatory approval in 2022.

Musk hopes to provide an update to Full Self Driving (FSD)
in 2023 to show regulators that the technology is much safer
than the average human driver.

The Silicon Valley automaker sells a $15,000 FSD software
add-on which enables its vehicles to change lanes and park
autonomously. That complements its standard “Autopilot” feature,
which enables cars to steer, accelerate and brake within their
lanes without driver intervention.

Tesla, which has been criticized for testing its unfinished
tech on public roads, is also under investigation by the U.S.
Department of Justice over claims that the company’s electric
vehicles can drive themselves, Reuters reported in October.
