Daimler gets license for testing their self driving Truck
|   Wednesday, May 27, 2015
Daimler becomes the first ever carmaker who got a license for testing their self driving Truck in public roads. This takes the brand's autonomous vehicular program one step ahead. They got inspirations from Daimler's advanced and sophisticated pilot technology which was demonstrated in Germany during last summer. This test included a Mercedes-Benz's concept truck driving in a cordoned-off area near Magdeburg.

This pilot technology is consisting of front radar with a stereo cam array combined with Daimler's new cruise control which is currently associated with Actros Truck of Mercedes-Benz.
The makers apply so many fine tunes to this package before applying for the license. The testing included around 10,000 miles run in one of closed courses in Germany. The officials gave a close look towards its autonomous feature and safety features too before granting required permission to allow this truck for further use. Autonomous mode allows the truck drivers to decrease drowsiness by 25% and this will decrease the rate of accidents as well.
