Mercedes-Benz Unveils First Self-Driving Luxury Car at 2015 CES Called the Mercedes-Benz F015 Luxury in Motion

Mercedes-Benz’s ambitious prototype of a self-driving car stole the show at this year’s International CES. Mercedes took the car for a joyride on the Vegas Strip last night, and it performed beautifully with nobody behind the wheel.

The car which is officially called the “Mercedes-Benz F015 Luxury in Motion” — uses a series of sensors, cameras, and radar systems to detect where it’s going, and what to watch out for. The inside of the car is a spacious capsule with rounded seats that face each other. The vehicle even has color-coded LED lights on the front and back to let you know what the car is thinking. It can tell you whether or not it’s in autonomous mode, or give pedestrians a heads-up when it’s safe to cross.

Mercedes says its self-driving car won’t be available until 2030 or so, and it may not look like the one that drove down the Strip last night. The main reason Mercedes won’t sell such a car earlier is the high price of all the sensors, cameras, and radar systems — and the software that runs it all. Check out the pictures below:
