The rise of autonomous vehicles will bring about the capability for drivers to do other things while the vehicle is in motion, which the Mercedes-Benz 'In Car Office' looks to help optimize.
Set to debut in 2017, the functionality would enable the vehicle to connect to the cloud and allow drivers to interact with content from their calendar and elsewhere through the dashboard. The service will be supported by Microsoft Exchange and allow access to the driver's calendar and even such services as WeChat and Skype.
The Mercedes-Benz 'In Car Office' is set to eventually be offered as an option for all vehicles in the Mercedes-Benz lineup. It aims to enhance the driver experience and enable productivity straight from the dashboard while the vehicle is in motion.
