2 MERCEDES-BENZ Trucks has presented a technological breakthrough in road transportation on a section of the A 14 autobahn near Magdeburg: the "Future Truck 2025" – the world's first autonomously driving truck. The new cutting-edge technology, the Highway Pilot, makes it possible to drive autonomously at the maximum allowed speed on the highway. It is based on intelligent networking of all the safety systems already available, together with cameras, radar sensors and communication links between the truck and its environment. This makes the truck of tomorrow even more efficient, safer and highly networked – and with it the entire long-distance haulage sector. Dr. Wolfgang Bernhard, the member of Daimler’s Board of Management responsible for Daimler Trucks and Buses noted: “Autonomous driving will revolutionize road freight transport and create major benefits for everyone involved. With the Future Truck 2025, MercedesBenz Trucks is once again highlighting its pioneering role in innovative technologies and opening up a new era in truck transport. We aim to be the number one manufacturer in this market of the future, which we believe will offer solid revenue and earnings potential.” “The ‘Future Truck 2025’ and its spectacular presentation recently are an outstanding team effort by all the departments involved, above all our ADVERTISING FEATURE Mercedes-Benz Trucks delivers insight into the future of trucking engineers and developers in Germany,” said Justin Whitford, General Manager, Mercedes-Benz Truck & Bus. “This breakthrough represents the attitude we all share at Mercedes-Benz Trucks: we are shaping the future of transport with ideas, passion and dedication. We are the technological leader and pacemaker for an entire industry. That is our motivation, and we can be proud of it.” Clearance Mid Season YOUR LOCAL TOYOTA DEALER HAS GREAT DEALS IN JULY Corolla Ascent Hatch Manual From $22,480 GR A From driveaway[A] GREAT FINANCE OFFER FOR PRIMARY PRODUCERS AND ABN HOLDERS A C O R OR CERSANDABNHOLDERS 4.89%APR* Pr d Diesel aut l adoGX T Di GXL Turb tomatic bo ti L Hix 4x4 D ub e Pi k Pickup SR Turbo Diesel includes Air Conditioning Noel Barr Toyota 35 Bay Road Mount Gambier Ph: 8721 3333 noelbarrtoyota.com.au [A] Recommended driveway pricing is applicable for Private, Bronze and Silver fl eet customers, & primary producers on selected models purchased and delivered on or before 31st July 2014 at participating Toyota dealers.
