Ubuntu Crops Up In Mercedes-Benz Self-Driving Car Promo

Ubuntu and its XFCE-flavoured sibling Xubuntu both feature in the newest Mercedes Benz promo on YouTube.

Unity’s familiar desktop layout can be seen at various points during the 2-minute spot that shows off the company’s self-driving research vehicle ‘S 500 Intelligent Drive’.

Mercedes-Benz showed off the S 500′s rural and urban autonomous driving last month, a feat they claim makes them the first car manufacturer to prove that self-driving vehicles aren’t only confined to driving on motorways and  ordered traffic lanes.

You can spot Ubuntu at various points through the video.
