Mercedes-Benz and Bosch partnered on automated system for vehicles to park themselves in a garage

Mercedes-Benz and German electronics company Bosch have plans to release an automated valet parking service that parks a car without a driver and returns the car to the driver when they wish to depart. While the vehicle won’t have the capacity to freely park on a street, it would be able to navigate a parking garage with the proper sensors placed throughout the building.

The driver would approach the pick-up zone of the parking garage, summon their car using their smartphone and have it in front of them within a few minutes. Mercedes-Benz will partner with Daimler’s car-sharing company, car2go, with Daimler in charge of installing the sensor systems in parking garages and Bosch creating the sensors to operate with the car’s smart system.

Mercedes-Benz will have the service go live for the first time at the Mercedes-Benz Museum’s multi-story parking garage in the beginning of 2018.
