Mercedes-Benz Vision Concept Cargo Van Use Drones

Mercedes-Benz Vision Concept Cargo Van Use Drones

Mercedes-Benz Vision Concept Cargo Van will use Drones to Deliver Packages.  Mercedes described the van as the first “to feature a fully automated cargo space and integrated delivery drones.”

Volker Mornhinweg, director of Daimler’s Mercedes-Benz Vans division said “This makes it easier for the deliverer to do business and rapidly reduces the delivery time for end customers,”

The operator will use a joystick to guide the van. It will drive by a wire control system integrator and will be emission, steering wheel, and pedal free.

The all electric powertrain and motor will produces 75 kilowatts, or 100 horsepower, and will go about 50 mph. The Mercedes-Benz Vision Cargo moves almost silently, this allows the van to operate in cities with traffic restrictions or for late-night deliveries in residential areas.
