JUST IN: Improvement to Tesla’s Smart Summon is almost complete; launch date may be sooner

A big improvement to Tesla’s Smart Summon is almost complete. Actually Smart Summon, abbreviated as ASS, is almost finished, according to Elon Musk. In response to a query about whether the capability would be present in Full Self Driving (FSD) Version 11, Elon Musk tweeted: “Going without saying that we all want ASS (Actually Smart Summon) as soon as possible.

Improved Smart Summon

He’s correct. ASS would alter how many Tesla owners engage with their cars on a regular basis and put the company’s brand in front of its rivals. In comparison to the present Smart Summon, ASS would be improved. The Tesla app’s Summon button may be used to summon the car, which will then utilize the smartphone’s GPS location to locate its owner.

For those who must traverse chilly, deserted parking lots late at night, this feature may be a game-changer. Although there is still a long way to go before it is fully implemented, it will assist to boost both convenience and safety.

Does Park Seek Fit In?

It’s unclear whether the upgraded version of Smart Summon will only add to what’s already there or if Park Seek will be included. Reverse Summon, now known as Park Seek, allows a Tesla to drop off its passengers, including the driver, and then drive to a parking space by itself. While the car can find a parking spot without the driver inside, they can choose their preferred spots. Park Seek will have three modes: the one nearest to the entrance, the one next to a cart return, and the one at the end of the parking lot.

The Autopilot Team thinks its program is prepared

The Tesla Autopilot team elaborated on developments in Full Self Driving, including navigating parking lots, during A.I. Day 2022. A large portion of the advancements resulted from creating a single stack, or one base of code, to run the vehicle on freeways, city streets, and parking lots.

Ashok Elluswamy, who oversees Tesla’s Autopilot program, said:

“The FSD beta software can operate the vehicle with ease. Parking lot to parking lot driving, halting at traffic lights and stop signs, dodging obstacles at junctions, performing turns, and other maneuvers should all be possible.”

The program now includes timeframes thanks to Paril Jain, Manager of Autopilot Motion Planning “Before the end of this year, we do want to incorporate the parking lot stack in the FSD stack. Thus, before the end of the year, that will essentially lead us to you sitting in your car in the parking lot and driving all the way to the end to find a parking space.”

On November 11 at 11:11, the single-stack FSD Version 11 began to be distributed. According to Musk, it will take a few weeks before it enters beta testing and a further few weeks before it is made widely available in the United States and Canada.
