[YesAuto Connected Travel] At 11:30 am, July 8, 2020, Germany time (5:30 pm Beijing time), Mercedes-Benz Online first released the new generation MBUX system that will be equipped with the new Mercedes-Benz S-Class, and the official website released the advance recording on time Good conference video.
Conference information overview
Therefore, it is easy for us to get the goal and expectation of the new generation of MBUX from Mercedes-Benz from the “press conference”, that is, to allow technology and design to coexist in order to achieve the mission of both practicality and “high-level sense”. As for whether this goal can be achieved, we are also curious.
12.8-inch OLED screen and new UI design
This design language, which is drawn from real scenes and has a very simple style, continues from Mercedes me to the present day. It can be seen at a glance that the design team has worked hard on the UI, and this design language has also been used by many friends and navigation Map manufacturers learn from and learn from.
At present, we don't know whether this technology is only to enhance the “3D effect” of the image, or whether it can achieve the naked eye 3D visual effect in film and television. This question will be answered when we experience real cars in the future, and we are quite looking forward to the screen effects that this technology can bring.
Fingerprint recognition and front and rear interaction
When getting in the car, now you only need to touch it to log in to your personal account and activate various function settings associated with your personal account. Mercedes-Benz sees it as the first step to “enter” the car.
Augmented reality head-up display system (AR-HUD)
After trying many Chinese brands of AR navigation, we have given a judgment: If the AR navigation function can be implemented on the HUD head-up display system, the practicality will be the best .
The DMD image unit of the new generation of Mercedes-Benz S-Class AR-HUD is provided by Texas Instruments. Its technology is commonly used in movie theater projectors. This is the first time it has been applied in the automotive field.
Gesture control and in-car assistant
The camera and algorithm of the MBUX Interior Assist system will learn and judge the user's intention. In addition to this example, it can also do things: if the driver looks over the rear window, the system will automatically open the blinds; if driving When the driver looks for things in the co-pilot seat in the dark, it will automatically turn on the interior lights and so on. If MBUX Interior Assist is restrained and smart enough, it can indeed bring some convenience to car owners.
to sum up
As the “big brother” of Mercedes-Benz cars, the Mercedes-Benz S-Class has been given too much meaning by Mercedes-Benz. It should be the most forward-looking model of Mercedes-Benz, and it should also be one of the most forward-looking models in the entire automobile market. We are very happy to see that there are many “rare things” in the hands of the new generation of Mercedes-Benz S-Class. This does not mean that it will not encounter dissatisfaction when it enters the country in the future, nor does it mean that the new MBUX system must be easy to use, you can Understand it as a signal that the automotive industry has not yet “drunk the lights”. We are very happy to see this signal. (Photo/Zheng Xu from the home of the car)
