The International Consumer Electronics Show (CES 2015) is quickly coming to a close and one prototype in particular has driven itself into our stream of interest! This invention is the Mercedes-Benz self-driving car!
The concept of the self-driving car is nothing new; however, this is the newest model that Mercedes-Benz has released! This cocoon-like “autonomous” vehicle, known as the F 015 “Luxury in Motion,” was released by the car company at CES 2015 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
This self-driving car invented by Mercedes-Benz has a capsule-like shape and an elongated body that measures 17 feet in length and a mere five feet in height.
The futuristic-looking long windshield transforms into a sunroof as the lone pane of glass covers the F 015’s roof.
Inside of the Mercedes-Benz are pedestal seats that rotate 30 degrees when the carriage-style doors are opened.
Like the old saying goes, “don’t judge a book by its cover.” Not only is the exterior of this vehicle sleek and modern, the inside also offers a luxurious experience for passengers!
When passengers are inside of the Mercedes-Benz self-driving car, they will be connected to the world outside of the car through six high-resolution touch-screen display panels located on the doors that enable passengers to utilize gestures, touch or even eye movements to navigate.
That’s not all! The Mercedes-Benz F 015 is not only an autonomous vehicle; it also can be driven by a human. However, while under the auto-pilot setting, blue LED lights located in the car’s grill, light up and have the ability to either project onto a crosswalk to let pedestrians know it’s safe to cross or to communicate with other drivers.
However, with this invention and all of its jaw-dropping innovation, Mercedes-Benz isn’t as interested in the car as they are in how this car will factor into the future way of living.
The German car company believes that in time, self-driving vehicles will be used in day-to-day travel.
