Tesla’s new feature crashesOctober 1, 2019
Tesla owners complain about updated software that is causing chaos.
Tesla’s updated software version 10.0 has included the Smart Summon feature for customers who have paid for advanced autopilot or self-driving capabilities. Declared as “the ideal feature to use if you have heavy pacts or are dealing with a fussy baby, or just don’t want to go to your car in the rain,” the Smart Summon feature is designed to allow the electric car to autonomously come from the parking lot and pick you up at the entrance into the building.
Despite the fact that the function seems very convenient, videos have appeared on YouTube and Twitter that show that the system produces errors.
Smart Summon is implemented using the application on the smartphone. After activating the button in the application, the electric car leaves its parking space, but should be stopped if obstacles are detected – pedestrians, cyclists or another car.
However, the car periodically makes mistakes, either driving heavily to the intersection, then blocking the roadway and so on. In addition, some videos show how the electric car almost got into an accident, as well as the facts of the accident.
Although the system has some problems, Tesla warns: “Smart Summon is for use only in private parking lots and driveways. You are still responsible for your car and must constantly monitor it and its surroundings and be within your line of sight, as it cannot detect all obstacles. ” The company added: “Be especially careful about fast-moving people, bicycles, and cars.”
