    First Autonomous Series-Production Truck on Public Roads

    Published on Oct 2, 2015

    The truck used for the premiere is a standard Mercedes-Benz Actros equipped with the intelligent Highway Pilot system for this test of autonomous driving on public roads. The truck is registered as a test vehicle according to Sec. 19/6 of the German Road Traffic Licencing Regulations (StVZO). The test organisation TUV Rhineland previously inspected the vehicle and issued an expert report. On this basis the Baden-Wurttemberg state government granted exceptional permission according to Sec. 70 StVZO.

    Taking the Mercedes-Benz Actros with the Highway Pilot onto the road required special permission from the state government of Baden-Wurttemberg. With this permission, the truck is now able to drive semi-autonomously on motorways at speeds of up to 80 km/h nationwide.

    Dr Wolfgang Bernhard, Board Member of Daimler AG responsible for Trucks and Buses, is undertaking the maiden journey in the Mercedes-Benz Actros with Highway Pilot system.

    Published on Jul 3, 2018

    Daimler Trucks is already conducting trials to test automated driving. The Future Truck 2025 kicked off the era of automated driving in long-distance traffic already in 2014. We were the first and demonstrated worldwide how our automated systems can be put to use.

    We test under a wide range of conditions to meet all demands. Our global presence and diversity are a huge advantage. We develop our systems within our network of all Daimler Trucks brands.

    First ride in the Daimler semi-autonomous truck

    Published on Jan 8, 2019

    Daimler is ready to put its driver assistance tech on the road with a semi-autonomous big rig, four years after the first prototype. We got a test ride in the truck where we watched it drive itself and pull off a pretty wild emergency braking maneuver.
