Daimler future

Daimler’s Car-to-X technologies for example would enable a completely new form of information exchange. With those, Daimler’s networked cars are able to look round the corner and through walls. It warns those coming behind it of hazards and prevents accidents.

The Mercedes E- and S-Class are now already the centerpiece of IoT (Internet of Things) and equipped for vehicle-to-infrastructure communication. Is a crossing blocked? Is the visibility poor? This data is forwarded by Daimler’s technology via highly secured data networks to Mercedes-Benz servers which are now located in maincubes and Telehouse colocation data centers. The servers can actually be seen as traffic control centers – with the Daimler vehicle fleet as the most important source of information.

Daimler based its decision to co-locate their new digital infrastructure and platforms in data centers of maincubes and Telehouse in Frankfurt, Germany on key factors such as the innovativeness of technologies being used, the security levels, the reliability as well as the availability of the data centers. Also the sustainability was important for Daimler. In other words, the energy efficiency of the maincubes and Telehouse data centers had to be high while the power consumption was required to be as low as possible.

Daimler’s planned completion date for the migration of almost 20.000 servers and 140.000 network ports to the data centers of maincubes and Telehouse is end of 2024. Read the full blog post by Daimler’s Director Data Center and Digital Workplace here.
