It can be a dangerous situation when, at the scene of an accident, first responders don't have a vehicle's structural information readily available. With Rescue AssistSM, that may no longer be an issue. They can scan a QR code in a Mercedes-Benz vehicle to quickly see where batteries, airbags and other structural elements are located to safely perform the rescue.

Rescue Assist in your Mercedes-Benz.

  • As of November 1, 2013, QR codes are installed in all Mercedes-Benz vehicles during production.
  • Mercedes-Benz vehicles model years 1990 and newer can be retrofitted with the QR codes at any local dealership.
