Smart summon takes corners around objects too sharply

Discussion in 'Autopilot & Autonomous/FSD' started by Three3, Dec 7, 2019.


How does smart summon take corners around objects?

  1. Seems like side of Tesla is going to hit corner of object sometimes

  2. My Tesla has actually scraped another car/object due to this

  3. Works ok / seems to have adequate clearance around corners of other objects

    Hi All,

    Do other people have the experience of smart summon essentially getting the car’s nose/front around an object (usually a parked car at the end of a parking aisle) and then apparently forgetting that the object is still there by the time the side & rear of the Tesla swings around? Meaning that the side of the Tesla gets super close to the corner of the object?

    And a follow up question: does anyone know if adjusting the bumper clearance (in the regular old summon section of the settings) also impacts smart summon clearance? Any other fixes if not?

    I would love to use smart summon regularly, especially at work when it’s raining at night, but due to the issue above I’ve had to abort several times during observation runs when I’ve either been in the Tesla or walking alongside it.

    Has anyone had the experience of scraping your Tesla/someone else’s car due to this issue?
