Using Tesla summon & Autopark in CH

I could see how Tesla "Summon" feature would be useful for me at home & work however I wonder how it would be received by my Colleagues, Firm & Neighbours to have a driverless car moving around in proximity to pedestrians.

I predict that My Company would ban me using the feature on premises & I would potentially alienate myself from my Neighbours due to Child / Pedestrian safety concerns - maybe rightly so.

any thoughts on how such tech would be received in your case?

H.

Re: Using Tesla summon & Autopark in CH

it's pretty hilarious that Tesla provides such a feature in beta mode.
it means something like "we don't care a f**k about safety".

Re: Using Tesla summon & Autopark in CH

The last thing you need to worry about is a ban or alienation.

It's the equivalent of letting a 3000kg dog loose.
It may be gentle, but it's still a 3000kg moving object

I'd worry more about personal liability, criminal charges, civil lawsuits, and instant notoriety.
Saying that, fools who actually use these features will establish precedence and case law for those of us who may use this in 20 years

It's unlikely that case law will be established in Switzerland.

Meh I wouldn't say that they don't give a fluck, it seems they are pretty strict about how it should be used (even if in the end the user can abuse it)... http://www.theverge.com/2016/5/11/11...t-crash-letter

True, as I mentioned in the other thread.

But laws have to start somewhere, and cars usually conform to some international standards.

H.
Summon requires that you continually monitor your vehicle's movement and surroundings while it is in progress and that you remain prepared to stop the vehicle at any time using your key fob or mobile app or by pressing any door handle. You must maintain control and responsibility for your vehicle when using this feature and should only use it on private property.
