Smart Communication

One of the main advantages of Intelligent Drive is how it interprets data from sensors in the front, rear, and sides of the vehicle to keep you and your passengers safe. If a dangerous situation is detected, it lets you know. In the event that you don’t respond, your Mercedes-Benz vehicle can activate the brakes to prevent or reduce the severity of the collision. More sensors provide more thorough protection, and Intelligent Drive is more advanced than ever.

All-Around Protection

Mercedes-Benz has long been at the forefront of vehicle safety. That’s why Intelligent Drive includes the following high-tech systems:

  • Stereoscopic Camera – This windshield mounted camera works with radar-based sensors to watch out for dangers ahead.

  • Long-, Short-, and Mid-Range Radar – Obstacles can enter your vehicle’s path at any moment, and multi-range radar detection provides more precise measurements.

  • Pedestrian Detection – A Mercedes-Benz vehicle uses radar, conventional cameras, and night vision cameras to detect pedestrians and wildlife in its path.

  • Smart Braking – When you press on the brake to prevent a collision, Intelligent Drive calculates the braking force needed to stop the vehicle before an accident occurs.

Whether you plan to use your Mercedes-Benz vehicle to regularly travel on Interstate 80 near Rocklin, or to pick up the kids from school, Intelligent Drive will work to keep everyone safe.
