Cannstatter Hütte at the Mercedes-Benz Museum.

The winter hut is back.

The winter hut is back: Let’s meet in the Cannstatter Hütte! This will be heard again from 25 October to 21 December 2018 and from 2 to 24 January 2019. As that’s when the ever-popular winter hut will be open on the hill of the Mercedes-Benz Museum.

The inside of the hut offers space for up to 190 guests and can be divided into two or three areas for various group sizes. This includes a separate bar area. Thanks to the flexibility of the space the Cannstatter Hütte is particularly well-suited to Christmas or end of year parties. There are still spaces available.

Successful autonomous driving – A pilot project by Daimler and Bosch.

Safety is the top priority.

People who drive conventional vehicles in heavy urban traffic actually perform an extraordinary feat: they continually monitor their surroundings, make decisions in fractions of a second, operate the vehicle, and focus on the route that needs to be taken. Autonomous vehicles need to be able to do the same things. The question is whether the technology will be able to perform as well as — or even better than — humans. Michael Hafner, Head of Automated Driving at Daimler, offers a clear-cut answer: “We are moving toward the objective of automated driving systematically, and also more quickly than many people believe.” The most important thing, however, is to “introduce a safe and reliable system that can be mass-produced. Indeed, safety is the top priority and the common thread for all aspects and development stages as we move toward series production. Whenever there are doubts, our policy is that being thorough is more important than being quick.”
