The Drive Pilot system depends on a set of sensors implanted throughout the car to accomplish these feats, including visible cameras, LiDAR arrays, radar and ultrasonic sensors, and audio microphones to keep an ear out for oncoming emergency vehicles. The technology even compares onboard sensor data to what it receives from its GPS to guarantee it knows precisely where it is on the road.

For the time being, Drive Pilot is only available on the 2024 S-Class and EQS Sedan. These are already in production, and the first automobiles are expected to arrive on the Las Vegas strip in the second part of this year.
