Hello The new S-Class is available this fall and it comes with "Drive Pilot 2.0" or Intelligent drive as they call their system right now, available for about 4000 USD. While the old Drive Pilot 1.0 was clearly worse than Autopilot, based on magazine tests, it seems Drive Pilot 2.0 offers now some features which Tesla does not in its Autopilot, neither V1 nor V2: - turn assistance: automatically slowing down when the indicator is set to make a turn - hands-free highway lane change without the need to touch the wheel by just hitting the indicator (with autopilot, you also have to touch the wheel after setting the indicator). - rear facing radar capable of detecting incoming overtaking highway traffic from 80 meters (to be used for automatic lane changes) - automatic speed adjustment to detected traffic signs or navigation data It also has some flaws. Side acceleration is limited to 3 m/s, which means, it cannot take narrow corners by itself. Further, hands-free is limited to just 15 seconds. They claim this is both related to possible future EU regulations which require such BS. Also, the new Mercedes does not seem to offer hands-free jam driving like autopilot does. Praktischer Physikunterricht - Mercedes S-Klasse im Test: Das selbstfahrende Auto ist schon sehr nahe - Golem.de (german) (english) In terms of sensors, it has a rear facing radar tesla has not, on the other hand, the mercs ultrasonics are shorter range and mercedes does not have rear side facing cameras and does not have two front side facing cameras as Autopilot V2. It has 4 cameras for a 360° view though, but it seems to me that these are not a stereo cameras and it is just use for parking visualization. I still think Mercedes is not in par overall with their latest and best vehicle coming this year, but they clearly offer some implemented features now which I miss in autopilot V1 (and V2), like the automatic speed adjust. What do you think?
