This is what happens when Summon encounters an offset object

    I don't always park perfectly to the side to allow my wife's MX to exit the garage in a straight line.

    This is what Summon does...

    Can anyone confirm that AP1 would perform as well? If not, perhaps AP2 has exceeded AP1 capabilities in some ways, beyond the oft-quoted "parity."

    I believe it will. I've been playing with my 2015 AP1 car's summon a bit and it does seem to steer around objects. I'll try this tomorrow when it's light out.

    Ive done this for a while. Ill take a video if people want to see it.

    Scene: 2 car garage. 1 SUV parked on left spot.

    1.I park the Tesla in the middle of the driveway to wash it.
    2. I reverse the Tesla further out.
    3. Summon the Tesla forward.
    4. Tesla steers from middle to right prking spot in garage, parks, then shuts garage door.

    Mine does this going into my garage, but it ends up leaving too much space on one side, so I find I use it to pull the car out rather than park it in my garage unfortunately.

    Wow, this is awesome. I was wondering about that because I have to do gyrations to get out of my garage to avoid my wife's car. But I also have motorcycles in the garage that are easy to hit trying to turn to back out. I don't dare try it, but yet.... I kind of want to...

    Great video demo of where the technology is right now and it can only get better.

    One of the big reasons I want to have EAP when we order our Tesla - I no longer will need to put the car away in the garage for my wife after she uses the car. She can pull out okay but is afraid of backing in and hitting something.

    That is excellent.... what we really need for the other direction (going into a two car garage, when it's not occupied) is a 'final location' setup. Telling it where to end up as precisely as possible. (X feet from the end wall, Y feet from the left wall, etc..). That would fix the issues with it not being 'centered' or in this case, offset, properly.

    Nice, interest that once it works around the other car it develops a new straight path forward at angle instead of trying to turn left again towards its original straight line, good to know this.

    I use it sometimes backing out if I can but hardly ever to pull in since we have 2 SUVs in our garage. We have to park close to the wall away from each other one pulled in (me) and other backed in (partner) so we have more space in the middle for us both to open doors.

    The Tesla Summon feature just centers itself which doesn't leave the room above, makes sense. It also hates the garage wall lip where door is since sticks out another 8" or so from actual wall - scared it'll take off the mirrors even when folded on that part. :-/

    Presumably it stopped because it had reached 39 feet of travel?

    No, it stopped because it reached the side of my driveway. Most of the time it straightens out and travels the original direction for varying distances. Varying distances because of the slope of my driveway. Not sure of the exact grade in which it stops, but it's not much.

    Here is a video showing AP1 summon avoiding another vehicle as i mentioned a few posts earlier.

    Typically i can stand in front of it so that it "avoids" me earlier and has more time to straighten out and park better.

    Reason why it stop short is my summon distance setting. I have it short so it stops in the right spot in my driveway when i back it out.

    Questions?

    Excellent! Have you ever had any of the close calls I read about such as veering off towards an stationary object?
    Also, your car looks beautiful, as good as new! ;)

    Thank you! It is just like it never happened (besides the memory).

    Never had any close calls. I keep my hand on the fob just in case but ive never felt the need to stop it. The video i posted shows the worst parking job its ever done. Typically i use my body as an obstacle to sort of guide it into the proper position.
