A Map to Autonomy

February 3rd, 2016 by

An article published on the Mercedes-Benz website last month looks at autonomous cars and the high-precision maps that will be necessary for them to work. The piece gives the Bertha Benz as an example:

“The Bertha Benz drive in the S 500 INTELLIGENT DRIVE research car in 2013 represented a major step towards the future. The luxury class saloon demonstrated that autonomous driving is possible both on cross-country journeys and in city traffic (see separate info box). Extensive preparations were made for the drive. This included creating the maps, as there was no existing material with the required precision.” Click on the link below to read more.
