Mercedes Presents The New MBUX At CES



Mercedes-Benz will roll out their new MBUX infotainment system starting this year and the A-Class is first in line to feature the new tech that was presented at the 2018 Consumer Electronics Show (CES). Acronym for Mercedes-Benz user experience, the system took center stage at the automaker’s booth for its world premiere.

What makes it so unique is the system’s ability to learn and adapt to a driver’s habits over time thanks to artificial intelligence. Say you call someone at a specific time every Monday or switch to traffic news in the morning. The system will learn of these habits and offer suggestions accordingly. Perhaps you take a certain route to and from work daily, MBUX will detect this and run background navigation of this route with relevant information like traffic.

Most exciting of all may be how the infotainment screen is operated. A full touchscreen, drivers can operate it like one would a smart phone; pinching a map to zoom in and out or swiping to the side for music selection. Even better, the old rotary control is replaced by a touchpad.

Of course some features shouldn’t be operated while driving, thus the intelligent voice control which employs natural speech recognition. You can activate it by saying “Hey Mercedes” followed by whatever your questions or comment may be. If you were to claim that you’re cold, the system would open up the climate control.

CarScoops claims once the A-Class goes on sale, customers are offered three different versions of MBUX: the dual 7-inch display standard version, 7-inch and 10.25-inch combination screen, or the dual 10.25-inch system with 1920x720 pixels resolution.

Let us know what you think of the new MBUX system below.

Sucks to see that there's no more rotary dial because when driving and needing your eyes on the road its not that easy to guess what you are touching, where as the dial with other feedback that often goes with it gives you some eyes-free control. In a way its good because we can be more focused on driving when in motion.

It would look odd if the two screens were of different sizes, so I can see people going for the dual screen options, either the larger pair or the 7 inch ones.
