December 17, 2020 – 10th anniversary at the Mercedes-Benz driving simulation centre: ten years ago, the most modern moving-base driving simulator of its time commenced operation in the Mercedes-Benz Technology Centre (MTC) in Sindelfingen. With its 360° screen, fast electric drive and a twelve metre long rail for transverse and longitudinal movements, it continues to be one of the most capable facilities in the automobile industry. It allows highly dynamic driving manoeuvres such as lane-changes to be realistically simulated. The driving simulator also plays an important role on the way to autonomous driving. Some of the testing and verification work for the DRIVE PILOT in the new S-Class took place there. The experts in Sindelfingen are also working on the simulator of tomorrow: In the compact XR (Extended Reality) driving simulator developed in-house, the interior functions of future vehicles can be tested flexibly with the help of digital smartglasses.
