Safety

The Integral Safety Concept from Mercedes-Benz divides vehicle safety into four phases:

Virtually no other area inspires the Mercedes-Benz engineers to produce such consistently impressive results as much as research into new safety technologies. The first important safety milestone was reached back in the 1950s with the development of the passenger safety cell, invented by Béla Barényi. Today it is just one of many components of the Integral Safety Concept which edges Mercedes-Benz vehicles ever closer to our vision of accident-free driving.

Equipment availability depends on engine and selected configuration.

Phase 1: safe driving.

Most accidents start long before the actual collision: with a lapse in concentration, poor visibility or hazards which cannot be anticipated. That's why the Mercedes-Benz safety concept employs a range of measures to support safe driving in everyday operation and to help you bring critical situations under control.

Phase 2: in critical situations.

Mercedes-Benz stands for automotive safety. That's why our vehicles support their passengers even in critical driving situations, so that every drive is a good one, if at all possible.

Phase 3: in an accident.

Cars from Mercedes-Benz have a large number of safety systems to prevent accidents. Should the worst come to the worst, however, an extensive number of protective measures can come into play. They provide protection for you and your passengers as well as for other road users.

Phase 4: after an accident.

To reduce consequential damage after an accident and support the work of the rescue services, a number of different actions are initiated, depending on the type and severity of the accident:

  • The best possible protection: the engine can be turned off automatically and the fuel supply can be cut off.
  • Eye-catching lighting: hazard and emergency interior lights can be activated automatically to lower the risk of subsequent accidents and help rescue services locate the car.
  • Automatic ventilation: if an airbag is deployed, the power windows are lowered automatically.
  • Easy opening: After an accident the doors can be unlocked automatically to make it easier for the occupants or rescue workers to open them.
  • Measures to aid rescue: integral crash joints between the wing and the door make opening the doors after a frontal collision easier.

Every second counts when it comes to occupant rescue after an accident. That's why Daimler has devised the rescue sticker, a small but effective innovation that gives emergency services immediate access to safety-relevant vehicle-specific design details at the scene of the accident. The QR code stickers are affixed to the vehicle's fuel tank cap and the B-pillar on the opposite side. They can easily be retrofitted and are part of the series specification for all new vehicles. In an emergency, rescue services personnel can scan the QR code with a smartphone or tablet PC to rapidly and reliably access the appropriate rescue card, which will assist them in their work.[1]

Mercedes-Benz has also published multilingual rescue guidelines (accessible worldwide on the internet) as a source of information for rescue services.
