Look, ma, no hands!


Mercedes-Benz

Mercedes-Benz and its technology partner Bosch have not been shy about their collective desire to bring automated valet parking to the masses, and thanks to the city of Stuttgart and the 2021 Mercedes-Benz S-Class, that future is inching closer to reality.

Mercedes-Benz announced on Monday that it, Bosch and parking-garage operator Apcoa will deploy an automated valet parking (AVP) system at the Stuttgart Airport’s P6 parking garage. According to the automaker, there’s an optional “pre-installation” for its flagship 2021 S-Class that will eventually enable something called Intelligent Park Pilot, which will give the car the ability to park itself based on a smartphone command, a first for the industry.

KEY POINTS

  • Oral arguments were held before the Supreme Court over the copyright case between Oracle and Google
