Tesla Smart Summon, Skip the Walk in the Parking Lot but Be Careful
With version 10 of Tesla's OS it came with a few new features but mainly Smart Summon. If you see your car in a parking lot you no longer have to go to your car instead it will come to you.
This update is available to the Model S, Model X, and Model 3. Now all you have to do is see the car, be within 200 ft, check if there are any obstacles and click come to me. Just like that the car comes to pick you up. Many reports are saying in day to day use this is unsafe and should be banned. Tesla states "Make sure you have a clear line of sight to your car and have checked its
surroundings." They also remark that "It's the driver's responsibility to use Smart Summon safely." People are debating if this feature should be banned after a few minor scrapes surfaced online. No injuries or major accidents have happened so far. I don't think these should be banned because in the cases that there was an accident it was usually the driver's fault. They did it when they couldn't see the car or when there were a lot of cars in the way. Don't stop innovation because some people misuse it.
