Tesla has updated its Safety Score feature to version 1.2

Tesla has updated its Safety Score feature to version 1.2, which among other things takes nighttime driving into account.

Since the introduction of the Safety Score feature, Tesla has made a number of advancements. The function has, however, seen the most changes in version 1.2. Hopefully, this update will allay some of the earlier worries that drivers had regarding how the score was determined.

Tesla computes each of the aforementioned variables using the Predicted Collision Formula (PCF). The number of auto accidents that could occur per million miles traveled is predicted by this formula.

The addition of features in this new version 1.2 includes a visualization of your trip (without location information to protect your privacy), Late Night Driving, and an extended grace period of five seconds.

Listed below are the modifications to Safety Score:

  • Presented a timeline visualization of your journey to indicate when particular incidents that affected your safety score took place. No location data is given in order to preserve your privacy.
  • Late-Night Driving has been added as a new safety factor. An increased amount of nighttime driving will result in a lower Safety Score.
  • Increased from 3 to 5 seconds the grace period once Autopilot disengages.
  • The safety factors for forceful braking and quick turns have been updated to count the number of events rather than the length of each event.
  • To determine the number of warnings per 1,000 kilometers of driving without the use of Autopilot, the Forward Collision Warning rate Safety Factor has been updated.
  • The updated safety score now ignores any miles traveled on autopilot and uses the mileage-weighted average of the safety scores from the previous 30 days.

The inclusion of Late Night Driving is one of the largest updates to version 1.2. According to Tesla, “Late Night Driving is defined as the number of seconds you spend driving from 10 p.m. to 4 a.m. divided by the total number of seconds you spend driving during the day.” Even yet, the Late Night Driving portion of your final score is limited to 29.3%.

Tesla has included this as a safety measure because nighttime driving can be riskier due to poor sight, fatigue, and distractions.

The National Safety Council reports that the majority of fatal collisions take place between 4 p.m. and 11:59 p.m., with Friday, Saturday, and Sunday being the accident-prone days.

A welcome addition is Tesla’s new trip visualization tool in version 1.2. Prior until now, drivers did not receive thorough feedback on their drives. They simply received a modified score as an alternative. Drivers will be able to see when their trip began, when Autopilot was activated or deactivated, when the infringement occurred (if any), and when the trip came to a close.
