Mercedes-Benz taught the garage to park cars in its museumJuly 23, 2019
Now visitors can park their car via smartphone.
Daimler and Bosch have received official permission from the German authorities to use autonomous parking. Now you can park your car in the Mercedes-Benz Museum in Stuttgart using your smartphone.
Parking is equipped with a variety of sensors developed by Bosch, which monitor the situation in the parking lot and transmit data to the vehicle through receivers created by Daimler engineers. In addition, there are cameras in the parking lot that monitor the situation around. If an obstacle appears in the car’s path, it will automatically stop.
Unmanned parking in the museum was created in 2015. Owners of cars with autonomous systems could leave the car at the entrance and park it with the push of a button on the smartphone. Pick up the car could be the same way. For a long time, the system was tested: first, it worked completely in a closed mode, then ordinary drivers were also allowed to call in, but on condition that the driver was at the driver until the moment of a full stop.
Daimler is already cooperating with Bosch in the development of unmanned vehicles – before the end of the year, German companies want to launch a taxi in California without a driver, built on the basis of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class. It will be possible to order a car through the application and only in a limited area, and trips will be free for the first time – it was on such conditions that the state authorities allowed to carry passengers.
