  • Tesla Updates on Self-Parking Cars in order to Avoid Any Chances of Crash

Tesla just updated its auto parking cars in order to help users to avoid crashes while using the mode.

Tesla has introduced an interesting concept of a Self-parking system in its vehicles. The system allows the user to give the parking command to the car. The car parks it’s self on its own given that there is a space of at least 30 meters around it. The car parking command is to be used with great care as the car’s own sensors send warning signals if they are about to get in contact with a nearby object. 

Along with that this self-parking feature also comes with another command that is named “Summon”. This command can be sent through owner’s mobile phone to car’s system. The car then is summoned towards the owner. The thing is that the car only moves by the speed of 1mph with in the range of 30 meters in this feature. It also shows warning signs if any nearby object is detected by car’s sensors. 

Recently a complaint was made by a Tesla owner. His car crashed under a truck after he used the summon mode. The owner claimed that he stood in front of the car for more than a minute and after that it crashed into a truck when he went for shopping. Details were dug up for the incident and Tesla says that the owner had sent a command deliberately for the car to summon. They say that the owner got various warning messages which he ignored and this resulted in the crash. It started moving just after seconds he left the spot. 

Tesla has updated the system for better stopping the functions. Along with that they have introduced the “Dead man’s Switch” that will kill the summon mode if required by the user. This might prevent any other crash like this in future.
