MERCEDEZ BENZ TARGETS A FULLY ACCIDENT-FREE WORLD BY 2050.
As if out of a sci-fi movie, Mercedes plans to fully autonomous cars cruising along its highly sophisticated and accident-free roadways by 2050. This ambitious high-tech plan has been christened “Vision Zero”, and Mercedes aims to dramatically cut down on serious and fatal car accidents by 2030. The German motor vehicle manufacturer last week announced that the goal involves the design and production of automated cars that allow for autonomous driving. However, their endeavor to achieve zero car accidents by 2050, or at least cut the actual number of fatal car accidents by half. Mercedes does not expect to carry out this achieve this ambitious mission on its own. A company spokesperson has mentioned the need for efforts by the federal government, as well as civil engineers and urban planners, to design or adequately modify existing roadways to meet the safety standards required for autonomous Mercedes Benz cars.
