About the Event
The traditional cornerstones of vehicle safety—such as seat belts and air bags—have significantly reduced injuries and fatalities over the decades. In the next wave of technologies, researchers and manufacturers are looking at ways to prevent crashes from happening in the first place. These systems, such as “6D vision” sensing technology and smart maps for connected vehicles, could make crashes much less common—and pave the way for self-driving cars.
At the CTS Fall Luncheon, Luca Delgrossi, director of driver assistance and chassis systems U.S. at Mercedes-Benz Research & Development North America, discussed these technologies and when they might come to a car dealer near you.
