February 2023 Software Release
The latest software release has rolled out to the driverless fleet:
Shipped TSEL V9 and V10.6 which together result in much smoother driving in a wide range of scenarios including lane changes, left turns, on narrow roads, when nudging and around nearby cyclists, makes more human-like lane-following decisions as well as more decisive turns and better at going around double-parked cars; improving overall rider comfort by over 10%.
Shipped several significant improvements to reliability by reducing trip interruptions due to route limitations by 70%, improving response in emergency scenes and increasing the success rate of low-speed turns in rare and challenging situations.
Shipped several improvements to trajectory generation resulting in smoother driving, especially while turning in intersections, closely trailing drivers and cyclists, when adjacent to bike lanes.
Shipped DA4 V1 which expands our ability to track people, cyclists, cars, buses, trains and other common objects in a broad range of situations by up to 60%.
Shipped Vehicle MTL V2.1 which improves classification of light trains by 15% and school buses by another 3%.
Shipped LPC V4 which improves reflexive reaction times by up to 26% and improves braking comfort by 6%.
Improved integration between maneuver planning and motion control systems resulting in more humanlike driving on higher-speed roads.
Expanded the ability for our cars to move autonomously within our launch facilities which enables us to further scale our fleet.
Statistics measuring the percentage of improvement are based on internal benchmarks and metrics.
