Thanks to "Intelligent Drive", vehicles from Mercedes-Benz can already identify many hazardous situations in road traffic and react appropriately to the situation today. COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST, for example, is part of the standard specification, for the A-Class right up to the S-Class. This radar-based assistance system warns the driver when a risk of collision arises. And the enhanced COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST PLUS, which is being launched across all model series, can even brake autonomously: if the driver fails to act when a risk of collision is detected, despite the warning lamp in the instrument cluster and the intermittent acoustic alert, the system will automatically trigger braking.In addition to this, from the C-Class through to the S-Class, there are already many current Mercedes-Benz models driving semi-autonomously on public roads, equipped with features such as DISTRONIC PLUS with Steering Assist and the Stop&Go Pilot semi-autonomous traffic jam vehicle following function. Active Parking Assist with PARKTRONIC allows automatic parking of the vehicle, into both kerbside and car park spaces, through active steering and braking intervention.
