Tesla may soon release a feature that allows owners to get their electric car to go and find their own parking space.
With Smart Summon, Tesla has introduced a significant update of its ability to remotely and autonomously move its car.
Tesla owners can "summon" their car parked in a parking lot, triggering the vehicle to drive towards them.
Smart Summon already performs quite well, but many owners don't find it so useful.
It may be for this reason that many have suggested the introduction of a "Reverse Summon" function, which would allow owners to be left in a convenient position inside a parking lot, so that the car searches for parking by itself. . Well, it's actually not bad.
Elon Musk said the feature may be available soon. Tesla's CEO linked it to an upcoming rewrite of the autopilot core code that would allow it to implement faster enhancement of its functionality.

Tesla rewrites its laws
As previously reported, Tesla is going through “a significant basic rewrite nell'autopilot Tesla ". The neural network will increasingly be at the center of the choices made by the vehicle.
A better ability to “read” the context is the basis of an action such as looking for a parking space. Tesla's 8 cameras can “map” the environment they pass through and make it a more detailed 3D scenario in order to better orientate.
Beyond the vintage-style wow effect (those who have seen Supercar do not forget), these functions already have an undoubted usefulness. For example the way Tesla Smart Summon is proving useful for wheelchair users.
This makes me think that Reverse Summon can also be useful after all.
What do you think? Let me know, maybe in the comments section below.
