Daimler and Bosch teamed up to bring autonomous driving tech to one of the more annoying parts of driving – parking. New automated valet system is debuting today at the parking garage for the Mercedes-Benz Museum in Stuttgart, Germany.
The valet system will be able to work for museum visitors starting in 2018, with visitors able to reserve cars from the facility using a an app. The vehicle then autonomously heads to the pick-up spot.
The infrastructure is supplied by Bosch, and it works with the car tech provided by Mercedes-Benz. Sensors both throughout the structure, and on the car, providing info both about where vehicles are located and moving throughout the facility, as well as making it possible for the vehicle to react to objects in its path (such as pedestrians).
