With text from Elizabeth Behrmann Bloomberg com and Autonews com. To help end the blind search for a parking space in crowded city streets Mercedes Benz cars will start giving. each other a heads up when a space is free, Drivers often pass by vacant spots when they re not looking to park and that information will be noted by the. car and uploaded to help others under a pilot project in Stuttgart between MB and parts supplier Robert. Bosch the two companies said Friday in a statement. Page 5 More Than a Car We re a Community, Several manufacturers are pursuing ways to reduce the time and stress of looking for a parking spot which is. also a burden on cities as the search adds to traffic congestion and pollution from the vehicles making loops to. find an available space Photo BLOOMBERG COM, The digital map making company HERE says it will roll out a real time mapping service early next year HERE is. jointly controlled by a consortium of Daimler Audi and BMW August 2015 issue who bought in for 3 1. billion last year The service will warn of traffic hazards and help find parking spaces by using onboard sensors. and cameras with vehicles of all three manufacturers contributing data. Rescue from a Serious Accident, When a vehicle is involved in a serious accident first responders want to know certain details about its. construction before they launch an operation to rescue the occupants Where is the gas tank How can the. battery be disabled safely Daimler has recently taken a significant step in improving our safety in this regard. and I ll quote their press release, When an accident occurs and the vehicle is seriously damaged the first thing the rescue services must do is.
free the occupants This can be dangerous for all those involved if information about the vehicle is not. available So for the rescue workers quick access to the rescue card is important It contains all the. construction details specific to that vehicle model such as the location of airbags battery and fuel tanks so. that equipment such as a hydraulic cutter can be used safely Already today all manufacturers have rescue. cards available for fitting on all their vehicle models. Daimler is the world s first car manufacturer to offer direct access to vehicle specific rescue cards by means of. a QR code Electronic access by means of a QR code enables Mercedes Benz to support in the rescue of. accident victims said Christian Treiber Director Service Parts for Passenger Cars at Mercedes Benz Global. Page 6 More Than a Car We re a Community, Service Parts The sticker is easy to retrofit to second hand cars So this safety benefit is something we can. offer not just to owners of new Mercedes Benz vehicles The QR code has been fitted as standard in all new. Mercedes Benz cars since the end of 2013 and is also fitted to Smart cars. With immediate effect the QR code can be installed in all Mercedes Benz and Smart vehicles manufactured. from 1990 onwards The fitting must be done by an authorised Mercedes Benz or Smart service station. Treiber In many countries we are offering our customers the chance to have the QR code retrofitted free of. charge For ease of access the QR code stickers are attached to the fuel filler flap and the B pillar on the. opposite side Accident investigators have established that these two areas offer easy external access and only. in rare cases are both of them seriously damaged, The black and white scannable symbol of the QR codecan be seen practically everywhere today on ads. packaging and even on business cards It comprises a string of characters that enable a quick response hence. QR and take the user to a predetermined web address When the code is scanned with a smartphone or. tablet with an existing internet connection the rescue card can be quickly accessed to provide safety relevant. vehicle informations Mercedes Benz has waived its right to make a patent application so that the technology. will be available for everyone, If you are interested you could ask your Service Advisor about it at your next visit to the dealership.
