When you visit us here at Mercedes-Benz of Orange Park, you’ll find luxury vehicles that offer the latest in advanced safety technology. Thanks to a wide range of innovative features, you can be confident that our cars are designed to be as safe as possible on every drive. Mercedes-Benz engineers never rest on their laurels though. Our cars are safe, but now the use of new technology during crash tests will make new Mercedes-Benz models even safer.
The Mercedes-Benz Vehicle Safety Unit will partner with the Fraunhofer Institute for High-Speed Dynamics and EMI from Freiburg to trial X-ray technology in crash tests. This could help the company better evaluate the results of crashes from multiple angles. High-quality still images taken of specific areas could help Mercedes-Benz build an even safer car.
This technology will improve how reliable crash simulations are and help them provide better information. Getting a closer look at how critical internal components respond to a collision is invaluable, especially as the age of autonomous vehicles approaches. Cars that can drive themselves will be held to high safety standards, and new innovations like the use of X-ray technology will help Mercedes-Benz build a self-driving model that you can depend on.
The safety knowledge gleaned from these findings will nicely complement the groundbreaking technology found in every Mercedes-Benz vehicle. Look for features like Active Lane Keeping Assist and Active Blind Spot Assist in our models, along with tech that’s unique to Mercedes-Benz cars. The industry-first ATTENTION ASSIST® feature, for example, can tell when you’re fatigued and need to take a break.
