Tesla’s Advanced Summon update is almost ready for release, says Elon Musk



Tesla’s remote control feature for car recovery, called Advanced Summon, is ready for release. In a recent update on Twitter, CEO Elon Musk noted the deadline and that he had been testing the feature over the weekend himself. Advanced Summon is a set of features and capacities that allow Tesla drivers to command their vehicles to drive to their place through the Tesla mobile program.

Tesla owners who are a part of the all-electric car maker’s Early Access Program recently shared facets of Advanced Summon that are expected to be included in the last release. These include the ability to recognize people and objects s path. Additionally, a quicker commute to the summoning driver than what was shown in the testing version and smoother steering are expected.

Almost ready. I’m testing it.

The current iteration of Summon utilizes a vehicle’s sensors to move forward and backward in a straight line for a maximum of 39 ft, whereas the new version will use data from Autopilot cameras to make trips that are self-guided. This update to data sourcing would, in theory, enable the car to also read signs in a parking lot to determine whether it was legitimate to park in an empty spot before pulling in, adding self-parking into the Advanced Summon set of features. That particular improvement, however, isn’t expected to be released until next year with a further update.

Tesla’s improvements in autonomous driving continue to raise the bar for vehicle maker’s to meet. The electric vehicle maker’s Full Self-Driving computer is already being installed in vehicles being produced, and new Autopilot and Autopilot-enabled features are being made available via software updates. Earlier this month, Tesla introduced two Lane Departure Avoidance features that steer drivers back into their lane after drifting with no turn signal. The features are derived from Autopilot but don’t require it to be on in order to work.

The safety data Tesla has accumulated statistically shows that less accidents occur when Autopilot is utilized vs. when automobiles are driven manually. According to this data, the organization now includes the attribute in all Tesla Model S, Model 3, and Model X vehicles. The Lane Departure Avoidance features were added without further cost to Tesla’s customers, both actions being taken as part of Tesla’s “safety first” assignment .

While Autopilot features are dedicated to safety improvements, Advanced Summon applies the technology to further improve the Tesla ownership experience, adding both advantage and fun into the mix.
