So what’s missing from this truck?

Mirrors, of course.

Or, at least, mirrors as we know them.

Star attraction on an exceptionally professional and popular Mercedes-Benz stand was the first sight of an advanced model featuring a swag of new developments and currently undergoing a comprehensive validation program.

Top of the list is MirrorCam; a design that uses aerodynamic cameras connected to two large screens on the A-pillars in the cab that dramatically boost driver vision.

Clever!

Really clever, and a vast improvement on the big, traditional mirror housings which severely limit driver vision at roundabouts and the like.

Another big attraction from Benz was its SoloStar concept truck, showcasing a dramatically reworked interior design with big improvements in overall bunk comfort and driver convenience.

Again, clever!

In fact, clever enough to prompt a plea to take the truck for an overnight stroll in the not-too-distant future.
