ahead of the camera (for example, it is located at an
angle of the camera's view, or located in an adjacent
lane) the instrument panel displays it as faded and
Model X does not slow down and stop for it.
WARNING: If the instrument panel is not
displaying a red stop line at an upcoming
intersection, Model X does not slow down or stop.
It is the driver's responsibility to pay attention to
upcoming intersections and monitor tra…c
conditions to determine when and if the vehicle
should stop and then to take appropriate action as
needed.
WARNING: Never depend on Tra…c Light and
Stop Sign Control to determine whether to stop at,
or proceed through, an intersection. Drive
attentively by watching the road and paying
attention to the roadway, upcoming intersections,
tra…c conditions, crosswalks, and other road users.
It is always the driver's responsibility to determine
whether to stop or proceed. Be prepared to take
immediate action. Failure to do so can result in
injury or death.
WARNING: In some situations, Tra…c Light and
Stop Sign Control may inaccurately detect a tra…c
light or stop sign, causing Model X to slow down
unexpectedly. Be prepared to take immediate
action at all times.
WARNING: You must briefly press the accelerator
pedal to confirm that you want to proceed through
an intersection, regardless of the status of the
tra…c light. If you do not confirm, Model X stops at
the red stop line displayed on the instrument
panel, even if stopping may be inappropriate.
Stopping at a green light may confuse other
drivers and may result in a collision, injury or
death. Therefore, always pay attention to
upcoming intersections and be prepared to
manually brake or accelerate in response to
surroundings.
WARNING: Never assume that your ability to see a
tra…c light, stop sign, or road marking (especially
at a complex intersection, or an intersection in
which a tra…c light or sign is partially obstructed,
etc.) means that Model X can also see it and
respond appropriately.
WARNING: Even the most recent map data does
not include all tra…c lights and stop signs.
Therefore, Tra…c Light and Stop Sign Control
relies heavily on the ability of the cameras to
detect tra…c lights, stop signs, road markings, etc.
As a result, Model X may ignore an intersection
that is blocked from the camera's view (for
example, obstructed by a tree or a large vehicle or
object, or located near a steep hill or sharp curve).

Tra…c Light and Stop Sign Control
Tra†c Lights
When driving with Autosteer or Tra…c-Aware Cruise Control engaged, and Tra…c Light and Stop Sign Control
enabled, Model X is designed to respond as follows when approaching intersections controlled by a tra…c light:
Type of Tra…c Light
Vehicle Intended Response
At a solid green tra…c light, or at a tra…c light that is currently off (not
illuminated), Model X slows down.
If you are following a car in front of you that continues through the intersection,
the instrument panel displays a green stop line and provided your hands are
detected on the steering yoke, Model X also continues. If a car is not in front of
you, the instrument panel displays a red stop line and you must confirm that you
want to continue through the intersection by briefly pressing the accelerator pedal.
If you don’t confirm, Model X stops at the red stop line.
NOTE: Model X resumes the set cruising speed when it continues through the
intersection, taking into consideration the speed of a vehicle in front of you.
Model X slows down and comes to a complete stop at the red stop line displayed
on the instrument panel. When you want to continue through the intersection (for
example, the light turns green again, or once Model X has come to a complete
stop), you must briefly press the accelerator pedal.
Model X slows down and comes to a complete stop at the red stop line displayed
on the instrument panel. When you want to proceed through the intersection (for
example, the light turns green again), you must briefly press the accelerator pedal.
NOTE: If the tra…c light changes after you've confirmed that you want to proceed
(for example, a green tra…c light turns yellow), Model X may stop instead of
continuing, especially if Model X determines that it can safely stop before entering
the intersection.
NOTE: Model X is not designed to proceed through an intersection when the tra…c
light is red or if the light turns yellow in situations when there is adequate distance
to safely stop before entering the intersection.
NOTE: You can take over driving at any time by manually braking to cancel

Model X slows down. To proceed, you must briefly press the accelerator pedal. If
you don’t, Model X stops at the red stop line displayed on the instrument panel.
NOTE: To prevent Model X from stopping, and to minimize how much it slows
down as it approaches, you can confirm that you want to proceed by briefly
pressing the accelerator pedal at any time after the instrument panel displays the
red stop line. Model X resumes your set cruising speed immediately after you
confirm (taking into consideration the speed of a vehicle in front of you).
WARNING: Approach attentively and be prepared to press the brake pedal to
slow down or stop.
Model X slows down and comes to a complete stop at the red stop line displayed
on the instrument panel. When you want to proceed through the intersection (for
example, tra…c laws and conditions indicate it is safe and legal to proceed), you
must briefly press the accelerator pedal.

Arm of T-junction
If Model X detects a T-junction based on the map data, Model X slows down and
comes to a complete stop at the red stop line displayed on the instrument panel.
When you want to proceed, you must take over steering and acceleration.
WARNING: Model X may not stop at a T-junction that does not have a stop
sign or stop line, or if the T-junction is not included in the map data. Drive
attentively and be prepared to stop (when necessary and/or appropriate).
End of T-junction
Model X slows down and comes to a complete stop at the red stop line displayed on
the instrument panel. When you want to proceed through the intersection, you must
briefly press the accelerator pedal.
NOTE: If you confirm that you want to proceed through an intersection controlled by
a stop sign by briefly pressing the accelerator pedal before Model X has stopped,
your confirmation is ignored. Model X is not designed to proceed through a stop
sign without stopping.
NOTE: Even when using Autosteer, and even if you have engaged a turn signal, you
must turn the steering yoke yourself (which cancels Autosteer) to complete a turn at
an intersection.

roundabout.
WARNING: At crosswalks, Model X may slow down and may stop, depending on whether the crosswalk is
controlled by a tra…c light and whether the cameras detect pedestrians, bicyclists, etc. in the crosswalk. Pay
particular attention at crosswalks and be prepared to take over at any time. Failure to do so can result in injury
or death.
Limitations
Depending on many different circumstances and environmental conditions, Tra…c Light and Stop Sign Control may
or may not stop at:
• Railroad crossings.
• Keep-out zones.
• Toll booths.
• Crosswalk systems.
• Yield signs or temporary tra…c lights and stop signs (such as at construction areas).
• Miscellaneous tra…c U-turn lights, bicycle and pedestrian crossing lights, lane availability lights, etc.
In addition, Tra…c Light and Stop Sign Control is particularly unlikely to operate as intended, can disengage, or may
not operate, when one or more of the following conditions are present:
• Driving through consecutive light-controlled intersections that are very close to each other.
• Visibility is poor (heavy rain, snow, fog, etc.) or weather conditions are interfering with camera or sensor
operation.
118
Tra…c Light and Stop Sign Control
• Bright light (such as direct sunlight) is interfering with the view of the camera(s).
• A camera is obstructed, covered, damaged, or not properly calibrated.
• Driving on a hill or on a road that has sharp curves on which the cameras are unable to see upcoming tra…c lights
or stop signs.
• A tra…c light, stop sign, or road marking is obstructed (for example, a tree, a large vehicle, etc.).
• Model X is being driven very close to a vehicle in front of it, which is blocking the view of a camera.
WARNING: The limitations listed above are not an exhaustive list of reasons why Model X may not operate as
expected. Many unforeseen circumstances can adversely impact the accurate operation of Tra…c Light and
Stop Sign Control. Using this feature does not reduce or eliminate the need to drive attentively and
responsibly. You must be prepared to take appropriate and immediate action at all times.

• An Automatic Emergency Braking event occurs (see
Collision Avoidance Assist on page 131).
Limitations
Autopark is particularly unlikely to operate as intended
in these situations:
• The road is sloped. Autopark is designed to operate
on flat roads only.
• Visibility is poor (due to heavy rain, snow, fog, etc.).
• The curb is constructed of material other than stone,
or the curb cannot be detected.
• The target parking space is directly adjacent to a wall
or pillar (for example, the last parking space of a row
in an underground parking structure).
• One or more of the ultrasonic sensors or cameras is
damaged, dirty, or obstructed (such as by mud, ice,
or snow, or by a vehicle bra, excessive paint, or
adhesive products such as wraps, stickers, rubber
coating, etc.).
• Weather conditions (heavy rain, snow, fog, or
extremely hot or cold temperatures) are interfering
with sensor operation.
• The sensors are affected by other electrical
equipment or devices that generate ultrasonic waves.
WARNING: Many unforeseen circumstances can
impair Autopark's ability to park Model X. Keep
this in mind and remember that as a result,
Autopark may not steer Model X appropriately. Pay
attention when parking Model X and stay prepared
to immediately take control.

Stopping or Canceling Summon
Stop Model X at any time while Summon is active by
using the mobile app or by pressing any button on the
key fob. Summon also cancels when:
• A door handle is engaged or a door is opened.
• You interact with the steering yoke, brake pedal,
accelerator pedal, or shift.
• Model X detects an obstacle.
• Summon has moved Model X the maximum distance
of approximately 39 feet (12 meters).
• Your phone enters sleep mode or loses connectivity
to Model X.
Limitations
Summon is unlikely to operate as intended in the
following types of situations:
• The driving path is sloped. Summon is designed to
operate on flat roads only (up to 10% grade).
• A raised concrete edge is detected. Summon does
not move Model X over an edge that is higher than
approximately 1 in (2.5 cm).
• One or more of the ultrasonic sensors or cameras is
damaged, dirty, or obstructed (such as by mud, ice,
or snow, or by a vehicle bra, excessive paint, or
adhesive products such as wraps, stickers, rubber
coating, etc.).
• Weather conditions (heavy rain, snow, fog, or

collision, stay alert and always pay attention to the
road so you can anticipate the need to take
corrective action as early as possible.

Collision Avoidance Assist
The following collision avoidance features are designed
to increase the safety of you and your passengers:
Forward Collision Warning - provides visual and
audible warnings in situations when Model X detects
that there is a high risk of a frontal collision (see
Forward Collision Warning on page 131).
Automatic Emergency Braking - automatically
applies braking to reduce the impact of a frontal
collision (see Automatic Emergency Braking on page
132).
Obstacle-Aware Acceleration - reduces acceleration
if Model X detects an object in its immediate driving
path (see Obstacle-Aware Acceleration on page
132).
CAUTION: Ensure all cameras and sensors are
clean. Dirty cameras and sensors, as well as

causing an inappropriate or untimely reduction in
motor torque and/or undesired braking. It is the
driver's responsibility to drive safely and remain in
control of Model X at all times.
Limitations and Inaccuracies
Collision Avoidance features cannot always detect all
objects, vehicles, bikes, or pedestrians, and you may
experience unnecessary, inaccurate, invalid, or missed
warnings for many reasons, particularly if:
• The road has sharp curves.
• Visibility is poor (due to heavy rain, snow, fog, etc.).
• Bright light (such as from oncoming headlights or
direct sunlight) is interfering with the view of the
camera(s).
• A camera or sensor is obstructed (dirty, covered,
fogged over, covered by a sticker, etc.).
• One or more of the ultrasonic sensors is damaged,
dirty, or obstructed (such as by mud, ice, or snow, or
by a vehicle bra, excessive paint, or adhesive
products such as wraps, stickers, rubber coating,
etc.).
• Weather conditions (heavy rain, snow, fog, or
extremely hot or cold temperatures) are interfering
with sensor operation.
• The sensors are affected by other electrical
equipment or devices that generate ultrasonic waves.
WARNING: The limitations previously described do
not represent an exhaustive list of situations that
may interfere with proper operation of Collision
Avoidance Assist features. These features may fail
to provide their intended function for many other
reasons. It is the driver’s responsibility to avoid
collisions by staying alert, paying attention, and
taking corrective action as early as possible.
