Mercedes-Benz is known for making some of the most luxurious cars on the market. It seems as if they have continued to stay ahead of the curve by coming up with a new, state-of-the-art vehicle. The vehicle includes the new MBUX (Mercedes-Benz User Experience), which is a 56-inch curved touchscreen. It will be included in all of the all-electric EQS EV model Mercedes-Benz that will be coming out later in 2021.
When you look at the new dashboard in this vehicle, it puts you in mind of being in a spaceship cockpit. Technology features are integrated nicely into the screen. In fact, almost the entire dashboard is covered by the Hyperscreen, providing technology that keeps the driver and passenger comfortable.
Of course, programming is available and up to seven profiles can be included in the Hyperscreen and are fully customizable. Some of the different features that can be controlled include media, navigation, and their smartphone.
According to a member of the Board of Management of Mercedes-Benz AG and CTO, Sajjad Khan, the multimedia dashboard is more than a visual part of the vehicle, it is also the “brain and nervous system” of the car. It is a smart device, able to learn the preferences of the driver and suggest changes. It is also hands-free, so there is no need to scroll or click.
After the driver’s profile was loaded, the AI of the Hyperscreen begins to anticipate possible choices that may be made. For example, if a phone call is typically made to one person at a certain time of the day, the contact information will be displayed and the driver will be asked if a call should be made. Other comforts will also be included optional heated seats and steering wheel and customized suspension heights.
According to Wagener, distractions will be kept to a minimum because the system is voice-activated. He also refers to it as a “zero layer” technology so there are no submenus to distract the driver.
Wagener said: “Our zero layer is another example of the ease of operation, where the most important and most commonly used interactions can be operated on a single, top-level. You rarely have to dive into submenus and thus shorten the interaction time. This is a continuation of intuitive operation and is part of the ’emotional intelligence’ of our Mercedes-EQ brand.”
