In May 2010 the engineers of Mercedes-Benz, a trademark of Daimler AG, demonstrated the probably most advanced test method for car safety to the international press. The system, which is designed to use and test series-production vehicles, is being equipped with iMAR's INS/GNSS system iTraceRT-F200, iMAR's GPS/GLONASS reference station and iMAR's high speed interface iSRIF for controlling a driving robot. The position performance of the system is +/- 2 cm.
The high reliability of the system is demonstrated in the daily use for vehicle testing at Mercedes-Benz in Germany, a leader in automotive safety and technology innovation.
