The system MBUX (Mercedes-Benz User Experience) presented for the first time in 2018 with existing A-Class, radically changed the operation and communication of the driver with the car, but also the design of the dashboard. There are now over 1.8 million Mercedes-Benz passenger cars with this system, and a few months ago, the second generation of this learning system debuted in new S-Class. The next big step now follows in the form of the new model EQS and optional available MBUX Hyperscreen.
In this, several are perfectly combined OLED screens, along with the perfectly integrated analog air ducts. The MBUX Hyperscreen It is surrounded by a single plastic front frame, while its visible part is painted in an intricate three-layer “Silver Shadow” process. The passenger also has his own screen, which can customize content from up to different profiles. However, the passenger functions on the passenger screen are only available during one trip. If no one is sitting next to you, then the screen becomes decorative and moving Mercedes stars can appear, for example.
All graphics are decorated in a new blue / orange color combination, while the digital instrument panel is also different. Thanks to the clean screen design, the MBUX Hyperscreen is intuitive and easy to use.
Entertainment systems often require several operating steps to control them. To further reduce these interaction steps, Mercedes-Benz has developed a new user interface with the help of artificial intelligence. More than 20 additional functions – from the active massage program to the birthday reminder and to-do list – are automatically offered with the help of artificial intelligence when related to the client. “Magic Modules” is the internal name given by the developers to these sentence modules.
The MBUX Hyperscreen has an impressive width 141 cm, while the area that passengers can experience is 2,432.11 square centimeters. The large and curved glass cover of the screen is created by a casting process at temperatures of about 650 degrees Celsius. This procedure allows a non-distorted view of the screen over the entire width of the vehicle, regardless of the radius of the screen cover.
There are in total 12 actuators below the touch screen for tactile feedback during operation. If the finger touches certain points there, they cause a tangible vibration in the cover plate. Also, two coatings of the cover reduce reflections and facilitate cleaning. Finally, some of the technical specifications of MBUX are: 8 CPU cores, 24-gigabyte RAM and 46.4 GB RAM.
