Mercedes Moves Towards Becoming the First Brand to Build Level 3 Autonomous Vehicles
The world-famous German automobile giant Mercedes is going to become the first company to produce 3 cars. The first models we will see are the 2021 Mercedes-Benz S Class.
“Someday in the future, cars will begin to travel without the support of their drivers.” Not only automotive companies, but also technology companies are doing everything possible to produce these cars.
Autonomous systems have stages, and tools that do not need the help that we are talking about will appear at level 5. We have not yet seen even level 3 tools in this developing area, but this may change soon.
Level 3 autonomous vehicle from Mercedes
The Mercedes-Benz S Class series is preparing to launch in 2021 with 3 autonomous driving. This means that the car does not need the help of the driver at a speed of up to 60 kilometers per hour.
A statement about this was received from Ola Kallenius, the global boss of the German company during the presentation of the car. According to the description, the only obstacle in front of three autonomous level cars is what the government has not yet officially allowed.
This technology will be used in the first phase for intercity roads and highways, and not for urban use. In order for cars to be used in the city without the cause of the accident, it is also necessary to recognize signals, traffic lights, signs and pedestrians on the roads.
Legal regulations are required
The German authorities should allow this technology one way or another, but it is not yet known how it will be regulated. These decisions are expected to follow other countries. On the other hand, it is expected that the permit for autonomous cars will have certain conditions.
According to Mercedes managers, next year the company will receive autonomous cars to prove that these cars can drive without the need for driver intervention in certain circumstances. This technology can also change the way cars are used.
According to Mercedes, in the future this technology will make cars more expensive than they are, or will require the use of a method such as a subscription system. However, a car ride unnecessarily will actually make many happy.
