Does Advance auto summon detect parking bricks?

I wondered what would happen if you summoned your parked car and there was no parked car in front of it. Would it just go forward instead of backing up? This would be disastrous if there was a 5" parking brick in front of the car. How would it know it should back up first? What about the curbs in a parking lot? Does it recognize these as limits to drivability areas? Does it even see them? A great way to test this would be to go to a empty parking lot and see if it recognizes parking lines etc. Theoretically a car in a parking space like costco would still back out and then come to you.

This AI stuff is really tricky. Kind of feel like the guy in Jaws. But instead of a bigger boat we need a bigger computer!

They won’t, sometimes they show up on ultrasonics but not if you’re too close. I don’t think its a problem though because the car always reverses if you pulled into the spot when you parked originally, or vice-versa.
