Tesla’s Video of Autonomous Model 3 Going Viral


FREMONT, Calif.–Tesla is currently working on a new version of its Summon feature that enables its vehicles to autonomously navigate parking lots and pick up their owners on request.

The latest version is becoming impressive as an owner demonstrated the capability in a crazy (yet low quality) video of his Model 3 picking him up.

Earlier this year, we published an exclusive first look at Tesla’s new Enhanced Summon, which allows vehicles to remotely self-drive in parking lots.

Tesla built the feature on top of its existing ‘Summon’ feature, which has been limited to just moving back and forth to get in and out of parking situations.

Enhanced Summon enables Tesla vehicles to autonomously navigate much more complex parking lot situations than just moving forward or back.

In the beta release notes, Tesla describes Summon as “a parking assist feature that helps you bring your car towards you or towards the destination of your choice by navigating out of parking spaces and maneuvering around objects as necessary.”

When you have the update in your car and the latest mobile app update, you start seeing an updated ‘Summon’ tab that not only includes the usual ‘Forward’ and ‘Reverse’ actions but also ‘Enhanced Summon’.
