Car-to-X Communication

Have you ever encountered an issue on the road or a traffic block and thought to yourself “gee, I wish someone would have told me that was there”? Well, now you can. Thanks to the Mercedes-Benz Car-to-X Communication system, any situation another E-Class model comes across will then automatically notify you and other E-Class model owners of potential dangers or unwanted obstacles. Say, for example, you’re coming home from work and suddenly find yourself in a traffic jam that could have easily been avoided had you taken another route. Car-to-X Communication will use its innovative technology to pick up on that, sending a warning to other E-Class drivers in the area by showing a message on their display. The same will be true if another driver experiences the jam first and you happen to be close by. The feature can also pick up on issues such as slippery roads or accidents.
