As a pioneer of the automobile, Mercedes-Benz is always focusing on improving the quality of our vehicles and to ensure pleasant, safe and resource-friendly mobility, day in, day out. Mercedes-Benz Innovation isn’t just something that receives some focus, it is Mercedes-Benz’s primary reason for what they do.
The Mercedes-Benz of the future will become an intelligent, automotive companion that recognizes the moods, desires and preferences of the driver and passengers and can proactively predict operating steps. Progress in connectivity, urban mobility and autonomous driving is fundamentally changing the relationship between driver and vehicle. Increasingly complex vehicle technologies call for human and intuitive operation.
Autonomous driving will fundamentally revolutionize the automobile. Artificial intelligence will play a key role in this. Mercedes-Benz is a pioneer when it comes to autonomous driving. Prototypes such as the Mercedes-Benz S-Class S 500 INTELLIGENT DRIVE, the F 015 Luxury in Motion or the Future Truck 2025 show that the technical conditions for autonomous driving are already well established.
Networked at any time.
A human’s best friend in many cases does not have four legs, but four wheels. Networked at any time and from anywhere with your vehicle – this is realized for customers, for example, via Mercedes me: the digital service platform is the central access point to the world of Mercedes-Benz. For Mercedes-Benz, connectivity means much more than Internet in the car. Even those who are not sitting behind the steering wheel can network with their vehicle and much more. The Mercedes me portal and the Mercedes me app bundle all digital offers, services and news. Being online at all times – on board of a Mercedes-Benz, this is a matter of course. Connecting the vehicle to the cloud, multimedia systems make it part of the Internet of Things.
Start the electromobile revolution.
The expression “Really, we should change the world” has never actually changed the world. We genuinely want to start the electromobile revolution. That’s why we haven’t just stopped at vehicles, rather we are also expanding our offering to include specific products, services and Mercedes-Benz innovations which go far beyond just driving. The way in which we travel, how we use energy, how we intuitively interact with our vehicles – all of that will change. The name of our revolution is EQ, and it stands for “Electric Intelligence by Mercedes-Benz.” And the process is already well under way. With the extensive EQ power fleet by Mercedes-Benz – the plug-in hybrids with the star.
The future of mobility.
Lab1886 continues the tradition of this culture of Mercedes-Benz Innovation. It is the nucleus of a global innovation ecosystem where new business models are conceived, tested and made fit for the market. The incubator works along the four basic pillars of the corporate strategy CASE, at whose centre is the mobility of the future. Many of the business models that are firmly rooted in the company today were created here – for example, car2go, moovel or Mercedes me. It is therefore no wonder that Lab1886 is in first place among the leading innovation labs in Germany.
