CityPilot can navigate tunnels, junctions with traffic lights and roads filled with obstacles.

It'll even stop at bus stops, loading and unloading passengers autonomously.

Mercedes has already tested its CityPilot system in the Netherlands, covering some 20 kilometers of tunnels, tight turns and highways.

CityPilot works thanks to nearly a dozen cameras, GPS and two different kinds of radar.
