War, scandal, malfunctions and a car that can drive are the stories that will the news desk banging on front door.

Yet my door strangely silent after given an insight (and drive) in Mercedes-Benz ‘s new which debuts next

That’s because, while flagship model could have been the world’s autonomous driving car, has decided not to give it that the driver’s hands have to on the wheel.

Not that this monster couldn’t drive The car would do it [autonomous driving] said Jochen Haab, support manager. We have had cars doing that, but happens if a child steps out the street and the radar misses it?

experts have predicted limited driving autonomy be introduced in luxury cars the next decade. Mercedes had a few hints that the new S-class be in the vanguard of this development. new Distronic Plus steering system gives it the potential. It has a capability, which locks on white-lane markings, or the car in front on at speeds up to 124mph with of less than 15 degrees.

With this steering plus the new sensors and safety the S-class can maintain its distance the car in front, braking to a complete restarting from stationary and stopping for cross traffic. But the has to keep hold of the steering and, if the system detects he isn’t imparting torque to the rim, then it will after 10 seconds and switch the off after 15.

So what happened? We had given to understand that a degree of autonomy had been but only at low speeds on motorway where traffic is travelling in the same direction at similar with no pedestrians or junctions. For there was a debate about it, Haab, but what if you have an

He says that product issues and potentially expensive claims against Mercedes big disincentives, but there were considerations. We would have to full data recording on he said, and would our customers be to accept such a system?

In there were issues the technology’s ability to maintain driving in all circumstances. Can the car detect it can drive autonomously for the next 20 said Haab. Probably not at the

Distronic Plus relies on a new sensor comprising six separate systems, a stereoscopic camera, 12 sensors and four additional The stereoscopic camera recognises the and trajectory of moving hazards up to 164 away and can detect cross-traffic and pedestrians. A two-stage infra-red system sees hazards in the and advanced computer algorithms can and differentiate humans from and will brake for both, but its headlamps in warning only at

While the decision not to launch a autonomous driving mode be seen as a prudent decision in quarters, it is still a lost General Motors’ Cadillac has a self-driving system on test as Super Cruise capable of automatic steering, braking and centring on highways under conditions. According to Nady GM’s director of electrical and integration research, autonomous cars will be on sale 10 years.

We were allowed to drive the new Plus system at Mercedes-Benz’s simulator in Sindelfingen, Germany. massive installation allows 360-degree views from a car installed in the hydraulically powered which has a 40-foot base on it is able to react realistically to braking and cornering inputs. our car reacted perfectly in our short drive, with sensors cars crossing our path the traffic lights and pedestrians out into the road.

Engineers there are still issues the system, however, including which is almost impossible for the to see through and computer algorithms are still far from perfect.

But if it doesn’t drive on its own, at the new S-class will have the most advanced headlamps. claims it will be the first car a single light bulb, since Karl Benz’s Benz Patent Motorwagen 13 years before Thomas first patented the electric bulb, that’s highly The S-class’s light-emitting-diode-based lighting is, nevertheless, a world first and the lamps and indicators to be dimmed at or when stationary in traffic. more complicated than though.

Each three-motor headlamp is fitted with an active system for the high-beam function. the car’s advanced sensors, the car the headlights of oncoming traffic, or lamps of cars in front. It actively vignettes the high-beam those cars so their are not dazzled by the S-class’s lamps.

claims that the system is so that on the open road, should be able to stay on beam virtually all the time.

option is predicted to cost no than a Bi-Xenon headlamp and the total energy requirement of the LED in the new car is just 34 watts compared 120 watts for halogen lamps and 84 with Xenon lighting, saves 2.1g/km of CO2. The LED also has a better colour appearing white instead of the white of some Xenon
