Tesla Motors has just unveiled its Model S Summon feature, where your car can automatically meet you from its parking spot. Well, Elon Musk has already taken it much further, and asserts that Summon will be able to work anywhere by 2018. And by anywhere, he means that you can ask your EV to meet you in Los Angeles driving from New York. Ambitious, for sure, but the video below of the Summon feature does look promising. However, there is a good chance that the politics behind driver-less cars may prevent such an early reality, as only a handful of U.S. states currently allow self-driving cars in any form. What do you think?
In ~2 years, summon should work anywhere connected by land & not blocked by borders, eg you’re in LA and the car is in NY
