Tesla Inc.'s top boss Elon Musk said the automaker is tweaking its self-driving software to eliminate a phantom braking problem and may release a significantly improved version within the next two to three weeks.
Subscriptions to the software for the system would be offered within a month, Musk said in a Twitter exchange without elaborating.
Tesla has released what it describes as a beta version of its full self-driving program to a limited number of employees and customers since October. Musk has touted the capability on Twitter.
The timeline for the plan wasn’t clear amid a flurry of tweets issued by Musk over the course of several hours. One tweet suggested two to three weeks while others signaled one or two months.
"I think we’re maybe a month or two away from wide beta. But these things are hard to predict accurately," Musk said in a tweet.
The technology enhancement comes amid growing scrutiny over Tesla's semi-automated driving system following recent accidents.
