Mercedes-Benz will present its new S-Class next September. It is an extremely important model, on the one hand because it is the most luxurious, on the other hand, because it often introduces technologies that are will later find on board other vehicles from the manufacturer to the star.
For this new generation, as much to say right away, Mercedes-Benz has put the package. As proof, even before the revelation of the car, the German manufacturer highlights the technologies that we will find on board the new S-Class.
The large limousine inaugurates the MBUX infotainment system (Second generation Mercedes-Benz User Experience). The previous one was launched a few years ago aboard the Mercedes-Benz A-Class. It had won over customers, but with the new generation of S-Class, it took a leap forward.
In the cabin, the engineers removed a good part of the buttons, 27 less compared to the previous generation. Everything has been replaced by a OLED screen running from the dashboard to the center console. This screen is curved in its lower part and it works in concert with a second 3D screen positioned facing the driver.
If you thought the new S-Class had only two screens, then you are wrong. Mercedes-Benz adds up to three rear screens from which passengers can be entertained by listening to their music, entering a GPS position, etc.
It is a true master car because Mercedes places great importance on the rear seats, but the driver has not been forgotten. The new S-Class inaugurates among others thehead-up display in augmented reality called AR-HUD. Concretely, without the driver having to look up from the road, the car will indicate to him via a projection on the windshield the precise direction to take via arrows, speed limits, activated aids etc.
This is not all, because the car can interact with all passengers via voice, and it is able to act in a predictive manner thanks to an armada of sensors. For example, if the driver turns around at night to look for an object, the car will automatically illuminate his overhead light. This system is called 'MBUX Interior Assist', and it is also able to detect hand movement so that passengers can open the sunroof without touching any button; it's magic.
She is also able to scrutinize the position of the eyes so that the driver can perform a whole series ofactions with his gaze. To adjust the right mirror, for example, he just has to look at it so that the car automatically selects it so that the driver can adjust it. It may sound like science fiction, and yet the S-Class W223 will be released next year!
