Smart Summons - cool experience

Maybe I should not have tried this but.... yesterday I was finishing dinner at a new temporary outdoor patio at a favorite spot. Location has multiple buildings and parking lots - my tesla was parked on the opposite side of the building that we were eating at. The temporary table (outdoor on the entrance patio) was very close (15 feet) from the main "drop off" spot for the Main restaurant. Just for giggles, when we finished dinner, I tried the "Smart Summons", and watched the screen as my car proceeded to drive around the building to where I was in just a minute or so. I couldn't visually see the car for 95% of its drive (I know, my risk here), but it was so cool to be sitting at the table and see the driverless car come around the corner to get us. People at other tables could not believe it either. I told them the car had come form the back lot and everyone was just shaking their head in astonishment! Here is an image of the path my car took to meet me at the front entrance:

Wow I don't think I could handle the suspense with my car driving without me being able to see it. Cool that it worked though.

Also, it's summon, no s at the end :)

That’s sweet! I’m still a wuss in trying a smart summon in a busy location.

I need to play it more in an open parking lot to get more comfortable.

I tied couple times at a empty school parking lot. It’s amazing to see it drive itself and when it’s getting closer to me, I was starting to walk away and it was FOLLOWING me!!!
