Australian media has reported that Mercedes-Benz Australia Pacific will employ an undisguised E-Class to gather data relating to autonomous driving technologies on local roads. The gathered data will be used by the company in its research in Germany.
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.
