Mercedes A-Class To Feature New Infotainment System With Advanced AI

BMW reported record sales last year on strong demand for its sport-utility vehicles and the overhauled 1 Series compact

The Mercedes-Benz User Experience system, or MBUX for short, is a newly designed multimedia system for forthcoming Mercedes vehicles starting with the 2018 A-Class.

The interface, called MBUX (Mercedes-Benz User Experience), will feature three-dimensional digital displays, a touchscreen, voice control, and over-the-air updates. The mid-range MBUX brings together 7.0- and 10.25-inch screens, whilst the range-topping system combines two 10.25-inch screens with a resolution of 200 dpi (1920x720 pixels). What the screens display is reconfigurable, but the default setting puts a traditional speedometer and tachometer in front of the driver. All touchscreens are capacitive as are the touch control buttons, while the touchpad offers haptic feedback. Mercedes says its new mobile assistant has artificial intelligence and it "learns" in order to "give the user individual suggestions based on their habits". By saying "Hey Mercedes", the driver can access features like weather information, or just adjust the climate control.

The voice assistant is also capable of learning language from its users, and vary its dialogue accordingly thanks to a cloud system which can evaluate input and choose appropriate responses. On a test drive of the new A-Class the driver said, "Hey Mercedes, I'm too cold", and the vehicle adjusted the temperature up a few degrees in response. Crucially, the system will respond without an Internet connection.

We are expecting to see a lot of exciting new models at the Detroit Auto Show this year and now we have one more thing to look forward to as Mercedes reveal one of the items that they will be showing off at the event. That model won't be sold in the United States, but MBUX will be available here on a new four-door variant that will replace the current CLA-Class.
