On, Elon Musk informs that the beta of the FSD in version 10.12.2 is now deployed on 100,000 cars of the brand. Version 10.13 will bring a major new feature: Teslas will be able to drive autonomously without relying on map and GPS data. or rather to navigate independently in the gigantic American car parks.

The Tesla boss has indicated that it will be possible to ask his Tesla to park at a specific location in a covered or underground car park.
