Such a system will be available in the fourth quarter of this year via subscription to residents of California and Nevada. There are also plans to expand its availability to more states in the future. Drive Pilot: First Class will initially be available on the electric EQS ​​sedan and S-Class.

“Drive Pilot is a technological watershed and an incredible step forward in the quest for automated driving,” said Dimitris Psillakis, CEO of Mercedes USA. “This innovative system reaffirms our commitment to being a leader in safety and technology while giving our customers valuable time back in busy traffic conditions.”

The automaker says owners will be able to activate the service through the Mercedes me Connect store. An annual subscription will start at $2,500 for the first year, with Mercedes noting that it will announce additional options at a later date.

Available at speeds of up to 64km/h on suitable sections of motorway, the system is ideal for rush hour driving and uses a suite of sensors to help you navigate the road safely. In addition to cameras, the system uses lidar, road moisture sensors and microphones to detect when emergency vehicles are nearby.

“Drive Pilot is the world’s first and only semi-automated driving system with internationally valid type approval,” said Markus Schafer, Mercedes technical director. — The system is designed on a complex system architecture based on the redundancy of many different types of sensors. I firmly believe that redundancy is the key to safe automated driving for Level 3 and beyond.”
