Mercedes-Benz have applied automated driving to conduct safety tests. Their main objective was test their cars safety as if a human is driving it. Parameters like speed, angle and timing cannot be simulated and it is not really safe to risk a human driver during tests. Mercedes-Benz is the leading manufacturer with regards to technological developments of cars. It is known to assist in fast tracking the progress and execution of airbags, three point safety belts, ABS, ESP and other automotive developments. Thus, automated driving systems have been improved for test driving purposes. Even though the said system has been used for some time now, they have presently developed a program that would tackle additional driving factors such as blind spot recognition systems, lane change warnings and night view assistance.
