Tesla rolls out Vision Park Assist to provide distance to surrounding objects: How it works
The feature is available through a software update, and so far, is compatible with Model 3 and Model Y vehicles only. The Tesla Vision Park Assist is available in the latest 2023.6.9 update, and comes as a boon for models that come without ultrasonic sensors. Tesla had stopped offering ultrasonic sensors on the Model 3 and Model Y cars in October last year, followed by Model S and Model X in early 2023.

“Tesla Vision Park Assist is for guidance purposes only and is not a substitute for an aware driver. Please be attentive and avoid obstacles as required,” said the company in a statement. While the Vision Park Assist system does provide audio and video alerts for objects surrounding your car, there’s no automation involved to assist you in parking.
