Issue 260 - Tesla Vision Park Assist at work
Tesla has just introduced an Extended Service Agreement for the Model S, 3, X, and Y. This plan extends coverage in the US for up to two years or 25,000 miles. You can purchase the plan using the Tesla app, with prices ranging from $1,800 to $3,500, depending on the car. The Model X is the most expensive, while the Model 3 is the least expensive.
Here is a brief video demonstrating the recently added Tesla Vision Park Assist feature. As a quick reminder to everyone, this feature is designed for cars without USS. In the video, we can observe that the new system isn’t entirely confident about the space surrounding it, particularly at the front of the car.
In these photos, we can see issues with the accuracy of the Tesla Vision Park Assist functionality, especially at the front of the car. The owner reports a distance of approximately 3 feet in the front, yet the system displays “Stop”.
Not all the examples are negative; in this instance, the owner used a measuring tape and verified that the car’s accuracy is within 1-2 inches, which is fantastic. What’s even better is that with the new system, the car can display curbs and other objects that weren’t detected previously by the USS. Now, Tesla just needs to address a few other cases, and we will be good to go!
It’s great to see the cameras showing things that the sensors weren’t able to show in the past.
Our friends at The Kilowatts spotted the Cybertruck on the road again. In the video, we can see the Cybertruck doing some swift turns and what appears to be testing the traction control.
Not the best pictures, but happy to see them more and more often.
