A pioneer in matters of safety.
Mercedes-Benz has consistently pursued its vision of “Real Life Safety” since 1969 and each new discovery helps improve road safety. In line with this philosophy, every one of the group’s vehicle series, from passenger cars to commercial vehicles, comes under the watchful eye of the Accident Research unit at Mercedes-Benz. This is the foundation for the continuous improvement of the vehicles and the development of new and even more effective safety systems. Hazardous driving situations, typical hazard spots and sources of danger are analysed with the aid of high-tech instruments. The primary objective of accident research at Mercedes-Benz is to pinpoint the causes of serious accidents and to effectively counteract their consequences. The prime motivation for new developments in safety at Mercedes-Benz is therefore life itself.
