Mercedes-Benz has introduced an automated driving system that can replicate safety-critical driving manoeuvres that cannot be precisely reproduced by human drivers are now being handled by autopilot on closed test tracks. Testing at the limit can now be carried out without danger and health risks to development engineers.


“With future driver assistance systems, we will be able to address even more complex traffic situations and therefore to ease the dangers of further accident hot spots – like intersections,” says Prof. Bharat Balasubramanian of Daimler AG.
