Mercedes Benz has unveiled a new concept car at this years CES, the Mercedes Vision URBANETIC, which is a new self driving concept.
The Mercedes Vision URBANETIC is designed to provide sustainable and efficient transport for both people and also goods.
Many people still view autonomous vehicles with a certain degree of scepticism, because the topic “digital transformation” evokes a diffused feeling between fascination and uncertainty. Fascination because digital technologies can drastically simplify complex tasks and offer unique opportunities. Uncertainty because it often seems as if there might be little room for human individuality and the ability to act freely.
That is why Mercedes-Benz is working on solutions that focus on people’s freedom, decision-making authority and individuality. The goal is to create a balance between people and technology. Great importance is attached to the concept of “informed trust”. People need to be able to quickly and reliably assess what an autonomous vehicle will do next. The vehicle must inform in a way about its intentions that people can grasp directly and intuitively.
