Mercedes is going to launch the next generation S-Class in april next year. Until then, the Stuttgart based manufacturer is anticipating the technology we are about to see on its top of the range limousine.
 
As a luxury sedan, the 2013 Mercedes S-Class must offer the ultimate security system on the market. Mercedes detailed its future safety technologies for the 2013 S-Class in a detailed press release.
 
The limousine will offer:
  1. Distronic Plus with Steering Assist helps the driver to guidethe vehicle in its lane and can even follow the vehicle in front in slow-moving traffic automatically.
  2. Brake Assist system BAS PLUS with Cross-Traffic Assist is able to detect cross traffic and also pedestrians, and if necessary boost the braking power applied by the driver accordingly
  3. Pre-Safe Brake can detect pedestrians and initiate autonomous braking to avoid a collision at speeds up to 50 km/h.
  4. Pre Safe Brake PLus can recognise an imminent rear-end collision, prompting the Pre-Safe system to trigger occupant protection measures. It can also firmly apply the stationary vehicle's brakes in the event of a rear-end collision to prevent secondary accidents.
  5. Pre-Safe Impulse, the driver and front passenger are pulled away from the direction of impact by their seat belts at an early phase of the crash before the resulting occupant deceleration starts to increase. This can substantially reduce the risk and severity of injuries in a frontal collision.
  6. Active Lane Keeping Assist can detect oncoming traffic and when the adjacent lane is not clear, and prevent the vehicle from leaving its lane unintentionally by applying the brakes on one side.
  7. Adaptive Highbeam Assist PLUS allows the main-beam headlamps to be kept on permanently without dazzling traffic by masking out other vehicles in the beams' cone of light.
  8. Night View Assist Plus can alert the driver to the potential danger posed by pedestrians or animals in unlit areas in front of the vehicle by automatically switching from the speedometer display to a crystal-sharp night view image and highlighting the source of danger. A spotlight function is furthermore able to flash at pedestrians detected ahead.
  9. Attention Assist can warn of inattentiveness and drowsiness in an extended speed range and notify the driver of their current state of fatigue and the driving time since the last break, as well as offering an adjustable sensitivity setting.
