Feb. 20, 2013 - PRLog -- Mercedes-Benz of Hoffman Estates ( is pleased to announce that the upcoming 2014 E-Class will come with new advanced safety features that can work actively to prevent certain kinds of collisions. The new technology will be called the Steering Assist system. While this isn’t a fully autonomous driving system, it will help prevent collisions that can result from driver inattention or extreme situations such as if a driver falls asleep at the wheel.

While the new Mercedes-Benz E-Class ( won’t actually drive itself, it will be able to help steer the vehicle away from impending accidents. This will join the current Mercedes-Benz DISTRONIC PLUS® adaptive cruise control and the Active Lane Keeping Assist system in the long list of proactive preventative safety systems available in Mercedes-Benz vehicles.

The Steering Assist system will use a series of stereoscopic cameras in conjunction with radar systems to detect current road and traffic conditions. While the Active Lane Keeping Assist can apply steering forces and vibrate the steering wheel in order to make sure the driver is aware of impending traffic hazards, ibzng the new Active Steering system will actually try to keep the car centered in the lane based on lane markings on the road. The sensors involved in the new Active Steering system can sense potential obstacle up to 1/3 of a mile away, providing incredible collision-prevention assistance.

Mercedes-Benz engineers state that full control of the vehicle will ultimately be allowed for the driver — only when the driver seems to be lacking control will these systems intervene. Apparently, this system is so sophisticated that it can even sense when the driver’s hands are on the wheel, allowing the driver to be in charge during a panic situation.
