At the CES held in Las Vegas in the beginning of the year, Mercedes-Benz revealed its new self-driving concept car – the F 015, an auto which will set new standards for extravagance. This week, Mercedes-Benz permitted reporters to take a ride in its extravagance, driverless vehicle, the F015. Despite the fact that the auto is not completely independent, it flags how travelers may connect with the upcoming autos.
This new independent vehicle will be a top notch luxury auto. The outline itself knocked the socks off of those present. Smooth and perfectly provocative, the auto is 2 meters wide and 1.5 meters tall.
Contrasted with a typical auto, the 3.6 meter wheels have been shifted to the corners, it has a high roof-line and more space within. The custom-silver external shells demonstrated an agreeable adjustable seating inside with four turning metal and leather seats for a knock free ride.
Talking about it the company representative said:
“Through the face-to-face configuration all passengers are able to communicate with each other and enjoy the mobile living space while being driven.”
The whole dashboard is a screen with 5 separate rear projection boards and a 4K touchscreen integrated within every electronically enacted door. Two separate screens add to it – one in the back bulkhead and an alternate in the motorized center tray between the back seats. Every screen is sourced from an different Macbook.
What is more, Mercedes-Benz emphasized that execution is not its sole purpose , rather, it will focus vast part of its endeavors on calibrating the integration between the auto and the driver through signals, eye- track and screen touch. Both the owner and the passengers will have the option to effectively interact with the auto. An iOS or Android application will enable direct remote calls for the auto.
Speaking about the new focus on communication and interaction, the carmaker noted:
“The car’s role is evolving from merely a means of transport towards that of a comfortable retreat, too. Drivers can choose at any time whether they wish to drive themselves, with support of intelligent systems or whether the car is to take them to their destination in autonomous mode.”
Implicit sensors will monitor the surroundings for communication. The driver won’t have to worry about braking, speeding up or slowing down: the sensors will deal with all that.
Dissimilar to the more reasonable business models from Tesla and others, the F015 is developed as a premium auto for a traget audience who can bear the cost of the extravagance that will be connected with it.
