Easy Entry turns off when passenger detected behind driver

Have an option to turn off Easy Entry when the seat sensor detects a passenger behind the driver.

Problem: A driver profile has the Easy Entry enabled and moves the seat all the way back when the car is put into park. But if there is a passenger behind the driver they will instantly be struck with horror as they see the seat slowly moving toward them like the crushing walls of so many action films.

Mobile App

Choose Driver Profile from Mobile App

Add an option to choose a driver profile from within the app. Sometimes when drivers are significantly different in height, it can be hard to get in and choose a driver profile from the touchscreen. It would be so much easier to just choose this from the mobile app.

Driver preference adjustments

Tesla autonomous driving software


Have range adjustments + or - by driver

In several areas

Could start off with fairly low amount of adjustment and see what the feedback is.

Lane hugging so you can adjust to your preference by a foot or two right or left

Lane change cutting off drivers

Again distance adjustment

Distance to vehicles in front

Acceleration aggression when getting on the freeway
