The Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe Concept is the first car in history capable of driving itself.
Currently, the car’s autonomous mode is only suited for traffic jams and highway driving. If you are going less than 20 miles per hour, the car can essentially drive on its own. Sensors on the car indicate when to brake.
Mercedes says it’s committed to being the first automaker to offer a car that works autonomously at all times, and claims it has already developed the technology to reach that goal.
Mercedes has partnered with Nokia to develop its fully autonomous system. The telecommunications giant provided the data to produce the three-dimensional digital maps.
The car is expected to be in production by 2020.
