Tesla Is Finally Updating Its Autopark Feature by The End of This Month

Elon Musk has just announced on Twitter that the Autopilot/AI team at Tesla will be working on Tesla's Smart Summon and Autopark features, as well as its humanoid robot, Optimus.


Autopilot is widely used by many Tesla owners worldwide while Autopark and Smart Summon are much lesser-used, due to being "too slow" or "won't detect a parking spot," among other issues. As more car manufacturers are making their own "autopark" systems, many parking features that Autopark lacks such as 360 camera view and better angling for parking are on the road right now. In order to compete with this, Tesla is eager to update their own Autopark system, and it is promising to know that there is a hard deadline for an update by the end of this month. Autopark would certainly be useful for tasks such as backing into parking spaces at Superchargers, and if Tesla has been focusing on it as much as they have on FSD Beta, it may change significantly how many owners decide to use it regularly.

Tesla's AI Day 2022 is at the end of this month, so the new Autopark, Smart Summon, and Tesla Bot progress/features will most likely be announced then.

Pull up next to the car that has a space behind it and put your turn signal on...
Instant P
Await a terrifying lurch backwards as your car stutters into the middle of a space with all the grace of a new-born dear taking its first steps. Start manoeuvre again parking manually as the autopark is still progressing to beta version

The biggest problem I encounter with Autopark is the impatience of other drivers around you...it takes a little longer for Autopark than a human. I get yelled at a few times a week ;-)) and I'm seeing more haters every day.
The biggest problem is it doesn't work. At all. In any way shape or form. It is not fit for purpose. Feels like a pet project given to one of the interns to do when they aren't busy. If it works for you great but for me, it is a joke

Thats an obvious lie. Afterall you are responding to someone who uses it all the time (apparently).

When I used to commute to work, I would use it all the time.

I've a lot of videos of it working in my car ... but I'll just like to a random video on youtube.

MYLRToon: Tell me what's not working for you. I'm interested and curious about your experiences...
I've had great results with both parallel and perpendicular parking. It may be a bit slow in completing the maneuver, but it works every time.

I just find it to slow to use. It also confuses people walking in parking lots. They think I’m waiting for them to go past, but it’s just the car pausing. Then it goes, scares the person, I tap the brakes and the car jerks to a stop with a number of beeps. I look like an idiot.

You're driving a Tesla, they already think you're a jerk

"Obvious lie" I clearly said it doesn't work for me and if it works for you great. Do not be so pious my opinion is as valid as yours

It detects a space fine and the "P" appears. After that it gets confused. This may be down to the streets I park on. In the UK there are narrow roads which only allow 1 car at a time. This was not a problem for the BMW's we have (M3/M5). I admit I have not tried in larger car parks many time due to the fact that it is very slow again in comparison to other vehicles. Is it down to the USS and teslavision I don't know

I was going by this.
