    (Scenario where no other cars are adjacent to an available spot)
    I kind of assumed this would have been a "no brainer" for Tesla. Since most SuperChargers require a back in perpendicular parking, wish it were automatic process.

    Agreed -- but right now they use ultrasonic sensors to measure parking spots. It'd be great if they could use cameras (or add more cameras) for measuring parking spots such that they understand lines.
