Mercedes-Benz has unveiled its biggest infotainment screen yet with the MBUX Hyperscreen.
The MBUX Hyperscreen is a huge, curved screen that takes up almost the entire width of the vehicle. It’s 141 cm (around 56-inches) wide and has 12 actuators beneath the touchscreen for haptic feedback.
“With our MBUX Hyperscreen, a design vision becomes reality,” says Gorden Wagener, Chief Design Officer, Daimler Group. “We merge technology with design in a fascinating way that offers the customer unprecedented ease of use. We love simplicity, we have reached a new level of MBUX.”
The screen actually houses several displays including the driver instrument cluster, main infotainment screen and screen for the front passenger. All of them blend together seamlessly to make it look like one.
“The MBUX Hyperscreen is both the brain and nervous system of the car”, says Sajjad Khan, Member of the Board of Management of Mercedes-Benz AG and CTO. “The MBUX Hyperscreen continually gets to know the driver better and delivers a tailored, personalized infotainment and operating offering before the occupant even has to click or scroll anywhere.”
Mercedes is using AI in the software powering the screen to adapt to the user to make it more personal.
Powering the display is an 8-core CPU with 24GB of RAM and 46.4GB per-second RAM memory bandwidth.
In terms of display technology, the MBUX Hyperscreen uses OLED which should provide great image quality including deep blacks.
As mentioned earlier, the first vehicle to include the MBUX Hyperscreen will be the upcoming all-electric EQS sedan.
The EQS sedan will offer up to 700 KM of range from its 100 kWh battery and 470 horsepower (351 kilowatts).
The EQS is set to launch later this year.
