The first auto that will be fitted with this Hyperscreen is the upcoming all-electric EQS luxury sedan. Its 56-inch curved OLED display is the largest in a production auto, and it's backed by eight CPU cores, 24 gigabytes of RAM, 46.6GB per second of RAM memory bandwidth, and 12 actuators for haptic feedback. Entertainment functions on the passenger side display screen are only functional during a journey, depending on the country-specific legal regulations.
Mercedes' MBUX infotainment system has evolved once again, as the brand unveils its new MBUX Hyperscreen, set to make its debut on the new Mercedes EQS. It will be powered by MBUX, which is short for "Mercedes-Benz User Experience".
Mercedes MBUX voice control: does it work? A business card will appear with their contact information and - if it's stored - their photo will appear. All MBUX suggestions are linked to the user's profile. If someone else drives the EQS on that same evening, this recommendation would not be made. The driver's screen can also show points of interest, a 3D driver display, as well as a heads-up display for a more ergonomic look.
Its cover plate has two coatings to reduce reflections and afford easier cleaning. Aluminium silicate incorporated into the glass surface improves scratch resistance, according to the brand.
The screen also features real, non-digital air vents. 3 years after the release date, MBUX has been completely renewed and this time it is called Hyperscreen.
Data from Mercedes' first-generation MBUX system suggests the majority of usage is of the navigation, radio, media and telephone functions, so these are maintained in the central screen. Buyers can opt for a version of the vehicle with cameras that allow for facial recognition, too.
The curved panel incorporates multiple screens, including analog ventilation outputs, which create a connection between the physical and the digital world. And the forthcoming Cadillac Lyriq electric SUV is promising a mind-boggling 33-inch screen.
The display measures a whopping 1 410 mm wide
The luxury vehicle company has just unveiled a new giant touch screen console for its Mercedes-Benz EQS.
'Our internal forecasts for 2020 indicate that we will have achieved the European CO2 targets for passenger cars a year ago.
The system's software, which will learn the patterns of the driver, will prompt the user, removing any need to go deeper into the sub-menu.
Now, the really big worry with massive touchscreen-based infotainment systems is that they can be pretty distracting.
The auto maker said that this alleviates the driver from needing to make numerous operating steps. If that's not what you want, you can turn it and the centre display off entirely, with both blending seamlessly into the frame.
Trainspotters will note the 438km remaining range figure listed in the bottom of the instrument cluster which, combined with the circa 65 per cent battery capacity shown on the display, yields a total driving range of around 700km - a nod to the upcoming production car's rumoured WLTP driving range.
