The pilot solution at the multi-storey car park of the Mercedes-Benz Museum demonstrates the first infrastructure-supported solution of the world for an automatic driving and parking service in real-life dual operating mode. The service will be available for guests starting in early 2018.

“Parking will be an automated process in the future. By applying an intelligent multi-storey car park infrastructure and networking it with vehicles, we have managed to realize driverless parking substantially earlier than planned,” stated Gerhard Steiger, Director of the Chassis Systems Control unit at Bosch.
The automated parking process at the Mercedes-Benz Museum is as follows:
- Driver leaves his/her vehicle in drop-off area and hands it back by smartphone app
- An intelligent system installed at the car park will do the registration for every vehicle
- After being registered, the car is automatically started and directed to an assigned parking spot
- When customer wants to leave, he/she will wait for his/her vehicle at a specified area. The car will autonomously roll into that exact area to pick up his owner.
We all now can reserve a car that is connected to a smartphone app in parking automatically
This initiative demontrates the effective cooperation between Bosh and Mercedes-Benz, in which the former supports with an intelligent multi-storey car park infrastructure and the later provides the vehicle technology. This also marks the success in adapting technology and software in cars.
Sensors installed in the car park help monitor the driving corridor and its surroundings and provide support in steering the car. With this technology, safety of the passengers will be ensured as it can respond well to the commands from the car park infrastructure and also stop if necessary.
