Tesla made it clear that self-driving cars will be a inseparable part of our futures very soon. The German car manufacturer Mercedes is not planning to be left behind. Mercedes-Benz F 015 concept car gives us a glimpse into what the future of driving might be like in 2030.
The companies Chairman of the Board of Management Dr. Dieter Zetsche emphasized that “The car is growing beyond its role as a mere means of transport and will ultimately become a mobile living space.” The cars beautiful interior design and slick touchscreen doors will suggest that he is planning to develop his concept with that in mind.
Mercedes took it a step further with an awsome front end projector. There it could display a crosswalk, warning signs, or anything else which comes to mind.
The Verge shared their experience with the car in the video below. I can only say that Tesla’s valuation is strongly built on it overtaking competitors in terms of technology and forward thinking, and to me Mercedes is not planning to make that an easy goal.
