Speaking at the IFA consumer electronics show in Berlin, the chairman of Daimler’s board of directors explained that cars will one day carry out chores and tasks humans don’t enjoy, in a bid to improve their quality of life and reduce stress.
Zetsche told Autocar that cars will then begin to work as their owner’s assistant, carrying out chores like taking the kids to school and picking up other family members while an owner stays at work or home.
“Everyone is talking about digitalisation and connected cars,” he continued. “But software alone will not be able to take you from A to B. It is the total package that will take you from A to B.”
