Mercedes-Benz exhibits driverless parking in Germany

Mercedes-Benz exhibits driverless parking in Germany

In a bid to showcase its autonomous driving know-how, Mercedes-Benz has launched an automated parking service at its multi-story parking space that’s meant for visitors to the Mercedes-Benz Museum in Stuttgart. Passengers are allowed to leave the car entirely so that it finds its own parking spot automatically. 

Mercedes reiterates that it’s not just the car, but the building that helps the process too. The brand has tied up with Bosch to monitor the entire premise and the car through sensors. This helps the system guide the car safely to an assigned parking spot through the vehicle’s on-board autonomous systems. And if you haven’t guessed it already, it will be controlled with a smart-phone app.

Since this is the first such driverless parking system yet, it will go through extensive trials with select cars at the park under the surveillance of the required authorities. And if everything goes as per planned, this automated parking system should get launched in 2018. Gerhard Steiger, Director - chassis systems, Bosch, said, "Parking will be an automated process in the future. By applying an intelligent multi-story car park infrastructure and networking it with vehicles, we have managed to realise driverless parking substantially earlier than planned."
