Mercedes-Benz Vans invests in Starship Technologies

Mercedes Benz van is vehicle that has dependably been low on fervour levels yet high on common sense. Be that as it may, what happens when you outfit one with all the advanced stuff to make it resemble this one here? All things considered that is a radical new ballgame for everybody. Make proper acquaintance with the fate of transportation of things – the Mercedes-Benz Vision Van.

It is the thing that the German automaker predicts as a conceivable path forward towards a productive and self-ruling conveyance vehicle.

Systematic development

Displayed at the continuous 2017 Consumer Electronics Show (CES), the Vision Van has introduced to people in general without precedent for September a year ago. The idea is a repercussion of the activity called adVANce – an in-house key future activity taken by Mercedes-Benz.

No more of prep talk! We should perceive what this idea can do. Controlling the beautiful van (can’t trust I characterised one that way!) is a 75-kW electric drive (around 102PS), which is sufficiently productive to give a most extreme scope of 270km. Because of an all-electric power plant, the Vision Van is noiseless and totally discharges free.

About Mercedes-Benz Vans

Mercedes Benz van has conceptualised the van to be the ideal case for productivity, quality and adaptability for last-mile conveyances. It includes a completely robotized stack compartment, coordinated automatons for self-governing air transports and a cutting edge joystick control. Aside from this, the Vision Van conveys a radical new approach to speaking with the driver and different drivers.

For example, it will flag the driver if there is a cyclist or a person on foot that is avoided his vision. All things considered, Van’s front and theback has LED framework and conducted presentations to speak with others. It will show messages, for example, turning, halting and that the Mercedes Benz van is stopped for a more extended term and in this manner can be overwhelmed.


  • With its involvement as lead investor, Mercedes-Benz Vans underpins its strategic, long-term collaboration with Starship Technologies
    •    A first prototype emerging from the cooperation was introduced back in September 2016: a Mercedes-Benz Sprinter acting as a mobile loading and transport hub for eight robots
    •    Pilot projects combining Mercedes-Benz vans and delivery robots are planned to be initiated in Europe over the course of this year

While this is awesome, Mercedes-Benz van is simply beginning. The organization has held hands with new companies like Starship Technologies to take the Vision Van idea to a radically new level. In future, the Vision Van will be changed to a versatile merchandise warehouse and a conveyance community for computerized last-mile conveyances. Mercedes-Benz says that the long haul vision of the idea, which passes by the name “Mothership”, is a self-ruling robot armada which organizes and enhances its courses self-rulingly with vans from the organization.

Like all Mercedes-Benz vans, Theo’s Sprinters are backed by three-year, unlimited mileage warranties and MobiloVan cover, which includes free roadside assistance for up to 30 years, provided they continue to be maintainedby the manufacturer’s official Dealer Network.
