Mercedes Gets OK for Driverless Valet Parking Using Bosch Technology

Cars will park driverlessly at the Mercedes-Benz Museum in Stuttgart, and that's just the beginning.

Wait till that Robo Punk takes your car for a ride.

MB E Class cars have been given the government OK for an autonomous valet-parking program at the Mercedes-Benz Museum in Germany.
This technology is "infrastructure based," meaning all the commands come from the parking garage, not the vehicle—including pedestrian and other object detection.
The Bosch-Daimler technology can be retrofitted in other parking garages, and the pilot is expected to lead to the expansion of autonomous parking, including in the United States.
Valet parking kind of sucks, so it's good news that Bosch and Mercedes-Benz's parent company, Daimler, have just received approval to run a driverless valet system at the Mercedes-Benz Museum in Stuttgart.

That's right, if this pilot program (as we expect) is the start of what will someday be commonplace, say goodbye to the punk changing your radio stations, turning off your automatic climate control, stealing your change, or doing burnouts while you're off dining somewhere.

And no more problem with parking too close to another car, either: Bosch says the fully automated garage of the future could hold 20 percent more cars because driverless valet tech will make closer-proximity parking possible.
