Timothy B. Lee on the latest: Teslas with no drivers but driving around a parking lot.
Tesla’s long-awaited and long-delayed “Smart Summon” feature is finally being released to the general public.
That Tesla coming out of the parking garage might not have a driver.
Customers who have purchased Full Self-Driving Capability or Enhanced Autopilot can enable their car to navigate a parking lot and come to them or their destination of choice, as long as their car is within their line of sight

For safety reasons, customers must continuously monitor the vehicle—holding down a button in the Tesla app—as it moves through a parking lot. Tesla urges customers to maintain a line of sight to the vehicle at all times.
