Mercedes-Benz and Bosch, together with San José, start an interesting pilot project for an automated ridesharing service.
Bosch and Mercedes-Benz hope the pilot automated ridesharing project will provide additional insights for the development of automated driving. The automated S-Class vehicles, which are equipped with the drive system and software from Bosch and Mercedes-Benz, offer a shuttle service between West San José and the city centre. The Daimler Mobility AG fleet platform allows ridesharing partners to seamlessly integrate self-driving vehicles into their service portfolio. The city of San José contributes its urban infrastructure to the pilot project in order to enhance safety, environmental impact and traffic flows.
