2021 Mercedes S-Class – Fully Automated Parking. Bosch, Mercedes-Benz, and the parking garage operator Apcoa are set to introduce driverless and fully automated parking at Stuttgart airport in Germany. The project features the new Mercedes-Benz S-Class, which is equipped with the technology to enable driverless, fully automated parking.
The pilot parking garage will also be a premiere for new Bosch video cameras that can identify vacant parking spaces, monitor the driving aisle and its surroundings, and detect obstacles or people in the aisle.
This platform makes the whole parking process ticketless and cashless.
Christoph Hartung, member of the executive management of Connected Mobility Solutions at Bosch, says: “Apcoa, Bosch, Mercedes-Benz, and Stuttgart airport want to work together to make parking fully automatic. Our intelligent parking garage infrastructure forms the basis for the future of driverless parking.”
Walter Schoefer, management spokesman for Flughafen Stuttgart GmbH, adds: “Automated valet parking really enhances our passengers’ comfort and convenience and saves them time, especially when they’re in a hurry and just want to drop their car off quickly at the airport.”
Dr. Michael Hafner, head of automated driving at Mercedes-Benz AG, comments: “With automated valet parking, Mercedes-Benz is demonstrating that driverless parking will soon be possible.”
For the test phase, Stuttgart airport will initially have two spaces available for self-parking vehicles. More spaces will be added when driverless parking becomes standard as planned in the future and as demand increases.
