Mercedes-Benz has received official approval for commercial use in Germany for the “automated valet parking” service, which has been developed together with the technology partner Bosch.
The world’s first highly automated driverless parking function (SAE Level 4) will be available in Germany for certain S-Class and EQS variants featuring the INTELLIGENT PARK PILOT and will debut in the parking garage P6 at the Airport Stuttgart.
“The world’s first approval for customer use of our highly automated and driverless parking function, developed together with our technology partner Bosch, shows that innovation leadership and ‘Made in Germany’ go hand in hand,”says Markus Schäfer, Member of the Board of Management of Mercedes-Benz Group AG, Chief Technology Officer, responsible for Development and Procurement. “Following the market launch of our DRIVE PILOT Level 3 system, we will soon be offering a Level 4 system for parking with our INTELLIGENT PARK PILOT – all of that this year. We really are showing our customers how technology can make life easier and give back precious time.”
