Most interestingly in mid-January, Tesla drivers in China began spotting things at Tesla spots. They are these strange-looking devices at Supercharger stations, appearing to be small hurdles of sorts. They are even in an upright position. Therefore preventing a car from parking in front of a Supercharger. Each sported a QR code that a Tesla driver could scan to lower the hurdle, thereby unlocking the space.
On Thursday, Electrekreported that the Tesla Owners club in Taiwan posted information on an updated version of the devices to Twitter. Now, instead of a driver using the QR code to lower the hurdle, they simply back their car toward it. A camera on the device reads the car’s license plate. Then the space unlocks automatically.
