Nvidia Robotics Expert Praises Tesla FSD's 'Human-Like Maneuvers' As Magical

Tesla Inc.’s TSLA latest v12.3.4 full self-driving (FSD) feature has started rolling out for more users in the United States, and the latest one to join the list of its fans is an Nvidia Corp NVDA employee.

What Happened: On Tuesday, Tesla investor Sawyer Merritt shared a tweet praising Tesla’s full self-driving (FSD) feature. Merritt quoted Yuke Zhu, Nvidia’s Senior Lead of Robotics, who had recently tested Tesla’s FSD and described the experience as “magical.”

Zhu commended Tesla’s FSD’s human-like maneuvers, which required no interventions. He expressed his excitement about the future of end-to-end robot learning and acknowledged the role of Tesla’s FSD in this development.

Why It Matters: Despite skepticism, FSD trials have impressed many early users and beta testers. It’s not the first time someone has called it magical. Previously, the supervised version of the software received rave reviews during the trial period, with Musk describing the experience as "like magic."

Merritt’s tweet follows Tesla’s recent moves to make its FSD more accessible to consumers. On Friday, Tesla announced a significant price cut for its FSD-supervised package, reducing the monthly subscription fee from $199 to $99 in the U.S.

Earlier in March, Tesla CEO Elon Musk rolled out a free one-month trial of the FSD feature to all U.S. Tesla owners. This move aimed to extend the trial to all existing owners who had not yet experienced the FSD Beta.

As of March 2024, Tesla’s FSD software was deployed on approximately 2 million vehicles in the U.S., according to Tesla AI Manager Paril Jain.
