Mercedes-Benz And Google Teamed Up To Introduce “Supercomputers” Into Vehicles

Mercedes-Benz And Google Collaborate To Introduce “Supercomputers” In Cars

On February 22, Mercedes-Benz and Google collaboration that will offer “supercomputer” navigation and independent driving technology to their fleet of vehicles. This will mark a significant industry first, as drivers who choose to pay for the feature will have access to level 3 self-driving capability.

Mercedes holds an edge over other luxury electric vehicle competitors, thanks to its recent designation by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration as the first level 3 provider. This is particularly noteworthy given the challenges Tesla has faced with their driver assistance program since its launch.

The CEO of a German car company, Ola Kaellenius, has announced that Nvidia, a chip manufacturer, has agreed to share profits with them for developing automated driving software starting in 2020. This partnership aims to lessen the initial expenses of buying expensive high-performance semiconductors.

According to Ola Kaellenius (CEO Of A German Car Company)

The expenses incurred would be minimal, even if drivers didn’t use all the features offered by the chip. He suggested that one should purchase the chip at a considerably reduced price and then figure out ways to increase shared revenue.

Conversely, Mercedes holds a minor ownership in Luminar Technologies, which produces sensors for self-driving vehicles. Recently, Luminar announced a contract worth billions of dollars with Mercedes, to integrate its sensors into a range of Mercedes’ automobiles by mid-2020s. This news resulted in a significant increase of over 25% in Luminar’s stock value.

Mercedes stated that teaming up with Google will allow them to furnish self-driving alternate routes and traffic details in their cars.

Whether the vehicle is parked or in Level 3 autonomous driving mode, which permits a driver to take their eyes off the wheel on specific roads as long as they can restore control if necessary, drivers will also be able to watch YouTube on the entertainment system.
