This will happen when the MBUX system is changed to the second generation.
Mercedes-Benz introduced the second-generation MBUX infotainment system. For the first time, it will appear on the new generation of S-Class, and after that, it will probably be extended to more affordable cars of the German giant.
Fans of hardware buttons may not like the new Mercedes-Benz S-Class. The big screen will replace 27 physical keys
Specifically, in the new S-Class, the system, as stated in the press release, will replace 27 hardware buttons. That is, all the relevant functions will “move” to the display, which may not appeal to everyone.
It is also worth noting a digital dashboard that can display a three-dimensional picture without the need for glasses. The central OLED display is characterized by a diagonal of 12.8 inches and the presence of tactile feedback technology. At the same time, as can be seen in the photo, the display has an aspect ratio close to 1: 1, but Mercedes-Benz itself does not specify anything in this regard, speaking only about the portrait orientation of the screen.
You can also highlight the voice assistant, which, firstly, understands 27 languages, and secondly, interaction with it in some scenarios will not require the starting phrase “Hey Mercedes”. For example, in the case of an incoming call.
From the rest, one can note the presence of a function for tracking the driver’s attention level, the ability to install up to three additional screens for rear passengers, the ability to authenticate by voice, face and fingerprint, as well as a camera system that will track passengers’ intention to get out of the car, and if there is a threat in the form of another participant in the movement through the backlight system will warn people of danger.
