Driving into a car park, exiting the vehicle, and sending it to a pre-booked parking space via smartphone: with the Remote Parking Package and the Mercedes me connect service INTELLIGENT PARK PILOT, the Mercedes-Benz EQE Saloon is ready for highly automated and driverless parking (SAE Level 4¹).

Additionally, the so-called Automated Valet Parking service is subsequently available for any equipped EQS Saloon and S-Class Saloon models by Mercedes-Benz² that have already been delivered. The highly automated parking function will soon be available for additional Mercedes-Benz models such as the new E-Class. The APCOA parking garage P6 at Stuttgart Airport is the first parking garage worldwide offering Automated Valet Parking to Mercedes-Benz customers.

The advantage of this highly automated parking function: Searching for a parking space and parking are no longer necessary. This not only saves customers valuable time but also makes their parking experience more comfortable, especially in narrow parking garages. Via the Mercedes me App, the driver books a parking space in advance and then leaves the vehicle in a designated drop-off area at the parking garage. Once all passengers have exited the vehicle, the driver can initiate the parking maneuver via the Mercedes me App. When the App confirms that the Automated Valet Parking infrastructure has taken control of the vehicle, the driver can leave the parking garage. Guided by the intelligent infrastructure provided by Bosch, the vehicle then automatically drives to the reserved parking space and parks automatically. When customers return to the parking garage, they can easily initiate the pick-up of their vehicle via smartphone. The vehicle automatically pulls out of its parking space, drives to the pick-up area and is ready for departure.

In November 2022, Mercedes-Benz and Bosch received the world’s first approval for commercial use of their highly automated and driverless parking function in Germany.
