A couple years from now, today’s videos of driverless Teslas taking baby steps in and out of garages will have us slapping our foreheads. “We really thought THAT was amazing? Sheesh.” By then, the “summon” range will have stretched across town, and then across two towns, and so on.
See what’s happening here? As Autopilot masters highway motoring and trickles down, Summon will master driveway motoring and trickle up, until the middle territory gets thinner and thinner and eventually ceases to exist. The car will conquer all. And to complete the autonomy cycle, it will charge itself with that bum-rushing robotic snake. Yeeeoouuch!
