New Mercedes set to recognise safety signs

The new Mercedes-Benz S-Class is to feature a new system that is capable of recognising safety signs.

It works by using a camera on the inside of the windscreen, which is capable of visually identifying no-entry signs, before sending the information collected to an on-board computer.

If the system then detects that the vehicle is about to pass prohibitory signs, a warning is sent out to the driver with three loud beeps, while a red no-entry symbol appears to emphasise the danger.

In order to boost the dependability of the technology, the electronics compare data from the camera with findings from the navigation system, helping to ensure that motorists never unintentionally drive in the wrong direction.

Such technology could play a key role in lowering the number of accidents on the roads, though it will initially only be available on the Mercedes-Benz S-Class and the renovated E-Class, before it is gradually rolled out to other models.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801529570-ADNFCR
