What’s better than an OLED TV in your living room? How about a huge OLED screen in your car. Mercedes-Benz has been causing a stir at CES in recent years (remember last year’s Avatar-inspired AVTR concept?) And 2021 is no different.
The enormous MBUX Hyperscreen display is an optional feature of EQS, the next fully electric luxury car from Mercedes-Benz.
There are 12 actuators carefully positioned below the screen that give haptic feedback with each press. Special coatings for the screen cover plate are claimed to help reduce glare while the glass is made of scratch resistant aluminum silicate. Hopefully there is also some kind of dust and fingerprint resistance built in …
The Hyperscreen is powered by artificial intelligence and software that can learn and adapt to the user and make personalized suggestions on how the infotainment should be used.
Thanks to what Mercedes calls “layer zero”, the user does not have to scroll through submenus or give voice commands. AI actually helps deliver dynamic and aggregated content from the MBUX system and all the services within it. Think of a TV that learns and displays the apps you use most frequently for easier and faster access.
This means fewer steps to access the key functions you want to use as a pilot. All the most important and most used applications are always in the top level view and you can have up to seven different profiles in the system. And your passenger is not left out either. They also have their own screen and control area.
The 2nd generation of Mercedes’ MBUX interface recently appeared in the recently revamped S-Class and the German automaker wasted no time rolling out this hugely stylish version for the upcoming EQS.
According to Sajjad Khan, member of the board of directors of Mercedes-Benz AG and CTO, “The MBUX Hyperscreen is constantly learning to know the customer better and offers a personalized and personalized infotainment and operating offer even before the occupant. doesn’t have to click or scroll anywhere. . ”
And the fact that it’s also an OLED display means you’ll get all the benefits of TV technology, including inky blacks, excellent contrast, and impressive viewing angles.
All we need now is some information on the audio system Mercedes plans to partner with the EQS and the Hyperscreen. If this sounds like the previous generation Burmester S-Class premium 3D surround sound system, it could turn out to be a sensational in-car setup.
