Tesla Autopilot re-write and reverse summon could be released in 2-4 months: Elon Musk

Tesla CEO Elon Musk revealed on the Third Row Tesla podcast earlier this year that the company is working on a “significant foundational re-write” of its Autopilot software.

Since then, there hasn’t been much news about the new Autopilot software, but Musk last night revealed how the re-write is progressing, and when it might be released.

As always, Musk has nothing but high praise for his team working on the project. He also reveals the extent of the re-write, explaining that it so extensive that it covers everything down to how the computer labels what it sees, which is a lot.

As a reminder, this is how much your Tesla cameras see as it drives down a road. With the re-write, the labelling of data will happen exponentially quicker than it does currently.

In a further tweet, Musk also revealed when the re-write will be released, and that it could also include ‘Reverse Summon’ at the same time.

If you don’t know, ‘Reverse Summon’ is the opposite of the current Summon feature, which comes to you from a parking spot. With ‘Reverse Summon’, your car would drop you off and then drive off by itself to find a parking spot.

The timeline given by Musk of 2-4 months is exciting, but should also be taken with a grain of salt, as he is often optimistic with his dates for expected releases.
