Mercedes-Benz Australia Pacific using an undisguised E-Class to gather data on local roads

The test car will be equipped with an additional equipment which will help collect information on Australian roads, satellite navigation, and traffic behavior.

The self-driving car dream can not be fulfilled without the presence of accurate digital maps, thus several companies like Mobileye, HERE etc. have also been working on the development of maps.
