Yesterday was not a good day. You may have seen images like this: or this: or even this, and thought that your car can detect obstacles and avoid them. These features are not used by summon. I'm embarrassed this happened. I feel stupid. But I think it's important to share my experience so that it doesn't happen to anyone else. I park my car in a tight carport. When my car is in there I have less than a foot on either side of the car. The carport angles out at the end to allow the driver to exit the vehicle. About three weeks ago I got summon in an update, so I was happy to use it because it meant now my car hood would not poke out in the sun and I could exit in the driveway and just summon my car in and out as needed. Yesterday I was standing behind the car to summon it out as normal. But this time it was later in the day than usual because it was a Saturday. This time the sun was cutting harshly across the driveway. I pushed the forward button and heard the whirr of the drive system engage. Since I was standing behind the car I didn't see the front wheel turn sharply though. And then the car lurched forward in a sharp turn directly into the wall. the car travelled mabye two feet. I let off the forward button immediately, but it was too late. I don't know why it decided to turn today when on other days it went straight, but this is definitely a problem. I went to the dealership and reported it yesterday morning, but I'm not sure the girl there knew how to escalate this as an issue. I got a rough quote from the Tesla official body shop in my area. They will sand the panels, get the dents out or cover them - the car is aluminum so the process is different than steel they said, and then paint it. They say it will look like new when they are done, and it will be about $2000. I'm pretty unhappy about that. I'm more disturbed by the fact that this incredibly advanced car, which has a self driving system that is supposed to keep you safe at 55 Mph cannot avoid a stationary object when traveling at 1 Mph. I would have thought that given all the sensors, the many many sensors, there would be no way something like this could happen. Obstacle avoidance is literally one of the very first things taught in robotics, and yet this car will readily impact a stationary object without hesitation. So please be careful out there. Summon does not use the sensors.
