Tesla FSD V12.4 Rollout Begins for Employees Without Nags

Tesla has begun rolling out FSD (Supervised) V12.4 to its employees, introducing a much-anticipated change – the implementation of vision-based attention monitoring and the removal of steering wheel nags. Reports of the initial rollout were shared on social media, with the company noting that steering wheel nags will still be used if the driver’s eyes are not visible to the cabin camera. This enhancement is available on vehicles equipped with a cabin camera, with clear and continuous visibility of the driver’s eyes. If the camera detects the driver to be inattentive, a warning will appear, escalating depending on the nature and frequency of detected inattentiveness.

The release notes for Tesla’s Autopilot suspension system emphasize maximum safety and accountability, with the suspension of Full Self-Driving (Supervised) in case of improper usage, defined as receiving five “Autopilot Strikeouts.” An Autopilot Strikeout occurs when the Autopilot system disengages after several audio and visual warnings for inattentiveness. Driver-initiated disengagements do not count as improper usage. Hand-held device usage while using Autopilot is not permitted.

Each 7-day period without receiving any Strikeouts forgives one Strikeout, with the suspension of the FSD (Supervised) feature being the only means of removal and being unavailable for approximately one week after suspension.
