Mercedes Benz launched automated transportation project

The company, together with Bosch, is working in a passenger vehicle with the ease of driving alone

Mercedes Benz and Bosch launched a pilot project for the automated passenger transport service with Mercedes Benz S-Class vehicles at Silicon Valley, San José.

These vehicles, supervised by a driver, move between West San Jose and downtown, along San Carlos Street and Stevens Creek Boulevard.

The service is available to a selected group of users who, through an application developed by Daimler Mobility, can book a trip in Class S automated cars from a defined collection point to their destination.

Mercedes Benz and Bosch have been working together For two and a half years on solutions for autonomous driving in cities. Its common objective is to establish a Level 4/5 automated driving system for fully autonomous and driverless vehicles, as well as to develop a production-ready system that can be integrated into different types and models of vehicles.

In their work, these companies not only rely on artificial intelligence and test kilometers, but also on the results obtained in simulations and test tracks specially designed to address driving situations that occur very rarely in road traffic.

In this pilot project, Bosch and Mercedes Benz incorporated Daimler Mobility AG as a new partner, a Daimler group company dedicated to the development of mobility services.
