Bosch and Daimler Showcase Driverless Valet Parking in the Real-World

At the Mercedes-Benz Museum parking garage in Stuttgart, customers can “auto valet” their Mercedes rides from the front entrance.

The pilot solution at the Mercedes-Benz Museum parking garage is the first infrastructure-based solution for a fully automated valet parking service in real conditions, with and without drivers at the wheel. From early 2018, visitors will be able to experience the convenient service for themselves in the museum’s garage, and save the time they would have spent parking.

Using a smartphone, anyone can book a car by app. The vehicle autonomously drives up to the pick-up area. Returning the car is just as easy: the customer leaves the vehicle in the garage’s drop-off area and returns it using the smartphone app. Once the parking garage’s intelligent system has identified the vehicle, the car starts and is guided to an assigned space.


Driverless parking in real-life traffic: Cars proceed without a driver to an assigned parking space in response to a command issued by smartphone, without any need for the driver to supervise the manoeuvre. Driverless parking is made possible by an intelligent multi-storey car park infrastructure from Bosch in conjunction with the vehicle technology from Mercedes-Benz.

This driverless parking is made possible by the interplay between intelligent parking garage infrastructure supplied by Bosch and Mercedes-Benz automotive technology.
