European Launch of Tesla’s Full Self-Driving Beta Scheduled Following Regulatory Adjustments

Tesla’s Full Self-Driving (FSD) Beta is poised for a European launch, thanks to a update in regulations by the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE). On Wednesday the UNECE adopted a new regulation to approve vehicles with Driver Control Assistance Systems (DCAS), finally allowing advanced driving assistance technologies, such as FSD Beta, on European roads.

The new regulation was adopted at the UNECE’s 192nd session in Geneva. The DCAS regulation establishes a standardized framework for systems that support a combination of driving control assistance features, such as braking, accelerating, and overtaking, and not just speed (cruise) control.

To avoid driver overreliance on such systems, the regulation stipulates that DCAS shall be designed to ensure that the driver remains engaged with the driving task. The driver’s hands must remain on the wheel and the system shall monitor the driver’s visual engagement with the road, triggering alarms after 5 seconds when it detects that this is no longer the case.
