The ESF 2019: New #safety ideas for a new mobility
With the new Experimental #safety Vehicle ESF 2019, #MercedesBenz is giving an insight into the ideas that the company's #safety experts are researching and working on. Among the one dozen or so innovations, some are near-series developments and some look well into the future.
One important aspect is making use of the virtual crumple zone: this term refers to the time that elapses between the vehicle's response to sensor signals in the pre-accident phase and the impact itself. If an object or other road user enters the virtual crumple zone, many valuable measures can already be implemented to protect the occupants and accident partner. This is possible with PRE-SAFE® and PRE-SAFE® Impulse systems, but also with the help of conventional restraint systems.
The ESF 2019 is based on the new #MercedesBenz GLE, is capable of automated driving in many situations and has a plug-in hybrid drive system. The ESF 2019 will be presented to the general public at the International Motor Show (IAA) in Frankfurt in September 2019.
