Mercedes Benz heads to Silicon Valley with massive focus on car tech

Till now, Silicon Valley was best known for being the area where established tech brands like Apple, Google and Facebook are based. Now, Mercedes Benz are also a part of that holy group, with the German automaker opening a new research and development centre. The newly opened centre will add to the carmakers existing development bases globally, and is possibly the clearest proof of the convergence of automobiles and the technology you use. The centre is called Mercedes-Benz Research and Development North America (MBRDNA).
