Exclusive look at Enhanced Summon and Autopilot coming in v10

September 5, 2019

I've had access to a few videos of a Model 3 running 2019.28.3.11 - an Early Access only release. As always, I want to share what I think is interesting in these videos with you. These new videos showcase a few features that I expect will be released to the general public under the version 10 of the firmware, hopefully in a couple of months.

u/tp1996 put together a list of what was discussed:

  • NoAP - Option to disable stalk confirmation coming in a few weeks.
  • Traffic Light and intersections - Currently working at about 98% success rate. Goal is 99.999%+.

  • Navigating complex parking lots - Includes parking garages with heavy pedestrian traffic.
  • Advanced Summon - Will be first example of car being able to navigate complex parking lots. ETA “Probably next month».

Another recent addition to Tesla’s mobile app is the «Come to me» button on the home screen of the app, right below the car. My favorite part of the feature is the visualization of what the car actually sees around it.

First look at Tesla’s new Enhanced Summon: self-driving in parking lots

This feature is rumored to go out with the March 15th release. Electrek has learned that Tesla has pushed the feature to its early access fleet.

According to Electrek’s source, once you press on ‘Enhanced Summon’ you get to choose between ‘FIND ME’ which will prompt your car to go to your location based on your phone’s GPS or dropping a pin to have your car drive to a location. The two options will only work if your position or the pin are within 150 ft of the car.

NoAP without confirmation and Enhanced Summon starting to roll out

Or at least that is what Elon said. We assume he means that folks with Early Access started getting it and when that looks good it would hit the rest of us.

Summon plus now closer!

A week ago Elon tweeted about Summon plus being almost ready and needing regulatory approval. This week he said that they just got it and it is almost ready to be rolled out. We don’t know which regulations he refers to but we are definitely excited about Summon plus or at least about Summon and Autopark to be using all the cameras instead of only the proximity sensors. Go Tesla team!

Tesla Enhanced Summon for upcoming v10 release ‘almost perfect,’ says Elon Musk

We’ve been waiting for Enhanced Summon (also called Smart Summon) for a long time now, but according to the videos that we have recently seen and to Elon’s tweet, it is getting closer to something that Tesla can release to more people. Elon just announced that (hopefully) there will be a wide release for folks in the Early Access Program. For what we know, not everyone in the program tests everything and we’re also wondering is if this would include folks who purchased FSD as Elon has said in the past.

Tesla, come pick me up

First videos showing Tesla’s Enhanced Summon - currently only available for people in the Early Access Program. While it seems slow, it is an impressive first step and we think that - even at this speed - this is a game changer for people with disabilities. We are looking forward to what is next!
