2009-New Mercedes S-Class S600

The Mercedes experts will be focussing more than ever on avoiding traffic accidents and reducing accident severity, with the driver assistance systems being unveiled in the new E-Class and the model year 2009 S-Class from spring 2009 onwards set to play a crucial role.Mercedes-Benz is implementing a globally unique synergy of sophisticated safety technologies to give its cars extra “senses” and added intelligence. All of which makes Mercedes models part of the “thinking” process – cars that can see, sense and act autonomously. In addition to this, the Mercedes saloons show the way ahead when it comes to occupant protection and set new standards with their “electronic” crumple zones.
To this end, Mercedes-Benz is for the first time using cameras alongside radar sensors. These long-range cameras monitor the area around the car and are able to interpret critical situations. By way of example, new camera-based assistance systems help the driver by keeping the car safely on track, detecting speed-limit signs, controlling the headlamps in line with the current driving situation and enhancing visibility in the dark.
