Regulators have authorized daily use in the parking house of the Mercedes-Benz Museum in Stuttgart.
Daimler and Bosch have recently authorized the competent authorities to operate a fully automated parking system. The technology called Automated Valet Parking can be deployed in the parking house of the Mercedes-Benz Museum in Stuttgart, Germany.
So far only in the museum
The automated parking service is invoked by the app on the user's smartphone and is self-sufficient. It is the world's first officially authorized and fully automated parking service that operates on a daily basis and does not require surveillance.
Automated Domestic Parking System Demo:
The driver is enough to enter the parking house, walk away and activate the parking by the application. While the driver has been able to deal with other issues, the vehicle automatically moves to the designated parking space. If you wish, it may also return to its original position.
The entire technology is based on the collaboration of a smart parking house of Bosch and Mercedes-Benz vehicles. Bosch sensors monitor the corridor together with its environment and provide information to the vehicle control system. If the sensor detects a defect, they immediately stop the vehicle.

Several years of testing
The joint project's development of these two concerns began in 2015, when the public first became acquainted with technology two years ago. The premiere was followed by an intense phase of testing, and since 2018 prospective candidates could test the system on their own, but under the supervision of trained staff.
All of the project testing findings were reportedly taken into account when granting the license. Vehicles at the parking house use turquoise traffic lights to inform passers-by that the vehicle is driven by an automated system.
