Mercedes Benz is building cars that know the road better than you
Hurray finally no more Betty,s telling us where to go....
The car will know.
As we approach a blind corner on a twisty mountain road above Sunnyvale, there's a moment when I'm sitting in the passenger seat of a pre-production Mercedes Benz S-Class and I'm not not sure that the updated Intelligent Drive will really slow the car down in time for what's up ahead. It does, and continues to do so for every corner it encounters. It's an impressive step in the automaker's march towards an autonomous vehicle.
