Tesla founder Elon Musk announced on Twitter Thursday that the company's "Summon" feature would be available soon. It will only require an over-the-air update and is compatible with all Autopilot HW2 cars made in the past few years.

Furthermore, the billionaire wants to make it possible to control your vehicle like an RC auto from a distance.

The "AutoPark" feature comes with "Autopilot" which is its semi-autonomous driver assistance system.

Tesla will release a new upgrade to its cars' Summon feature that will allow the vehicles to follow parking signs, find empty slots, park automatically, and most importantly, allow you to drive it like a giant RC auto. According to Musk, advanced Summon will let your vehicle drive to your phone's location and "follow you like a pet" if you hold down the Summon button.

Some critics express concern over vehicles being in the line of sight, however, Musk clarifies that Tesla has chosen this route not for convenience or as an engineering choice, but rather for safety.

The Summon feature, which is part of Tesla's driver-assist Auto-Pilot system, now allows Model S drivers to park their cars from outside the vehicle in tight spots or to move the cars short distances to shift parking spot. This is useful for squeezing into tight parking spaces.

When you think about the first iPod and the products that followed such as the Nano and the Shuffle and all the iPhones and the features that got better and better each time, it's seemingly gotten to a point where each new upgrade isn't as exciting as it once was.
