Driverless Journey Of The Mercedes-Benz S-Class From Production Line

Mercedes-Benz is entering a new dimension of motoring with its new S-Class and is raising the bar, in terms of production, for the automotive industry worldwide.

For the official start-up of the luxury saloon in the Mercedes-Benz plant Sindelfingen, the S-Class drove independently off the final assembly line, without a driver at the wheel. The vehicle then drove automatically approximately 1.5 kilometers to the loading area within the plant. The Sindelfingen plant is currently piloting the possible use of the system for series production and investigating its further potential. The start of production for the new and fundamentally updated S-Class brings the introduction of state-of-the-art manufacturing processes and cutting-edge Industry 4.0 solutions in the assembly area.

Close integration with sophisticated IT systems and communication technology results in the optimization of the flow of materials, further improved flexibility an efficiency, and enhanced ergonomics for the workforce.
