The parking garage at the Mercedes-Benz Museum in Stuttgart, Germany, has become home to the world’s first driverless SAE Level 4 parking application, officially approved for everyday use.
Developed by Bosch and Daimler, the automated parking service is accessed via a smartphone app and requires no safety driver. Mercedes-Benz owners, who possess a car equipped with the relevant self-driving technologies, simply pull into the allocated valet parking bay and engage the service using the app. The vehicle then drives itself to an empty spot in the parking garage. When returning, the owners consult the app and collect their vehicle from the allocated collection area.
