Mercedes-Benz is the United States’ first Level-3 autonomous vehicle manufacturer

Mercedes stated at CES earlier this month that it will be the first vehicle firm to get SAE certification for a Level 3 driver aid system. This was verified by the manufacturer on Thursday when it stated that its Drive Pilot ADAS (automated driving aid system) now meets the standards of Nevada Chapter 482A, which regulates the use of autonomous vehicle technology on the state’s roadways. For the time being, Drive Pilot is the only authorised Level 3 system in the United States.

“An unwavering commitment to innovation has consistently guided Mercedes-Benz from the very beginning,” stated Dimitris Psillakis, President and CEO of MBUSA, in a news release on Thursday. “It is a very proud moment for everyone to continue this leadership and celebrate this monumental achievement as the first automotive company to be certified for Level 3 conditionally automated driving in the US market.”
