Mercedes Details New Infotainment System for Small Cars

Hey, Mercedes! Voice-Activated Assistant Drives New MBUX System CES 2018: Mercedes-Benz Launches Truly Intelligent Infotainment System
Russell Knight | 13 January, 2018, 01:31

The new tech was showcased at the opening of the 2018 CES (Consumer Electronics Show) in Las Vegas.

The infotainment system will make its way into the entire compact vehicle generation from Mercedes, including the new A-Class that arrives this spring.

Mercedes is lagging a bit behind in terms of infotainment systems compared to the cusp of premium automakers, but they're about to change that with what the brand calls MBUX. But Mercedes is showing off a new infotainment system that leverages artificial intelligence and augmented reality, and it should enter production this year.

Where Mercedes previously relied heavily on a somewhat confusing touchpad controller, MBUX offers more options. The central display is touch sensitive, though that's the most boring way it can be operated.

Three different cockpit configurations will be available for the new MBUX: two 7-inch displays, one 7-inch and one 10.25-inch display and two 10.25-inch displays and 1920 x 720 (HD) resolution. The systems can also be customised to suit personal needs of the user.

Mercedes-Benz will be able to update the interface over the air and plans to debut it in its new A-Class cars, which the company has said it will unveil in February. To command the vehicle to do something, users can simply say "Hey Mercedes".

The new system can learn a driver's preferences via artificial intelligence. If the navigation system detects a route frequently driven, the navigation will start to that location, or if the driver regularly listens to a particular radio station at a certain time, it will switch over to that station at the proper time.

Aside from making the riding experience of the driver and passengers of the auto convenient and fun, Mercedes said that MBUX creates an emotional connection between the vehicle and the people in it.
