Daimler, Bosch, Car2go Partner for Auto-Parking Tech

Daimler is looking to roll out cars with automated parking features before the mass production of self-driving cars. According to the media site of Mercedes’ parent company, it just forged a partnership with Bosch to start a pilot project about cars that will be able to park themselves simply through a command from the user’s smartphone. The technology will benefit car-sharing service provider car2go to relieve its customers the hassle of looking for a parking space for their cars or searching for it when they need it. The vehicle will be able to do tasks autonomously like driving to designated parking spaces—ensuring the comfort of its users and letting them save plenty of time in… Continue Reading »

Smart Car Sharing: Milan Gets car2go Service

This month marks another milestone in Daimler’s car2go car-sharing service, as Milan gets to enjoy a fleet of 450 smart fortwo vehicles slated to be fully available by the middle of September.
