Miraculous, yet incomplete, feature of Tesla.
Tesla has just released an updated “Smart Summon” smart car recall feature for its customers. The original Smart Summon feature could only instruct the vehicle to move forward, making it easy for the driver to get the car out of tight parking lots. The new improved update makes the Smart Summon really more impressive, when it is possible to order the vehicle to leave the parking lot, automatically navigating to your location.
This feature works based on the user’s smartphone GPS position, the updated Tesla update adds accuracy and reduces the time it takes the vehicle to be summoned. However, it seems that this impressive feature is not really complete, instead a lot of Tesla customers have encountered difficult situations.
The first case is a test, it shows that the Model 3 can automatically stop when a pedestrian is detected. However, if the pedestrian comes in a hidden corner, not the front, the car may not be aware and could have caused the accident.
In the second case, the Tesla car almost crashed into another car, while trying to cross the road to reach its owner. Fortunately, the car brakes in time, so there is no unfortunate accident.
The third case may not be the fault of the Model 3, when another vehicle backs up just as the Model 3 is passing by in Smart Summon mode. However, it can be seen that with this summoning feature, the Model 3 does not recognize approaching objects from either side, so it has no braking response when another vehicle can cause a collision. touch.
If it is a human controlled in this case, it is entirely possible to avoid the unfortunate collision.
It’s clear that Tesla’s smart recollection feature is still not fully implemented, and it easily causes unfortunate accidents.
