Tesla has introduced an innovative park assist feature that utilizes bird's-eye view 3D reconstruction technology.

Tesla has finally unveiled its version of the sought-after bird's-eye view in the form of a 3D reconstruction park assist system.

This top-down view, a technology widely present in luxury cars and increasingly common in more affordable vehicles, was notably absent in Tesla's lineup until now.

CEO Elon Musk teased its arrival back in 2020, but it's taken over three years to become a reality.

Ashok Elluswamy, Tesla's Autopilot software head, announced this breakthrough in a recent post on X. Though not the traditional bird's-eye view, it essentially serves the same purpose and more.

Elluswamy explained the feature in detail:

"We've replaced the 2D obstacle band with a high-resolution 3D reconstruction of the Tesla’s surroundings. It's an extension of our Occupancy Network, providing significantly higher resolution for navigating tight parking situations. Obstacles are depicted as a continuous distance field, allowing us to represent diverse shapes smoothly and efficiently. The vehicles displayed aren't fixed meshes; they're real-time predictions generated by the network."

This feature is part of the Tesla Holiday Update, a much-anticipated addition, especially considering the update was initially perceived as lackluster.

However, initially, it's only available for Tesla Vision vehicles lacking ultrasonic sensors (Model 3/Y since 2022 and Model S/X since 2023). Elluswamy indicated that older Tesla cars with ultrasonic sensors will eventually receive this feature, but a specific timeline hasn't been confirmed.
