Mercedes-Benz has revealed its new MBUX Hyperscreen, a curved display that stretches the full width of the dashboard.
Set to debut in the upcoming electric EQS, the MBUX Hyperscreen effectively comprises several merged displays, resulting in a massive screen measuring some 1 410 mm wide. Air vents are integrated into the large digital surface.
The new system furthermore features the brand’s latest artificial intelligence technology, which Benz promises will adapt “completely to its user” and make “personalised suggestions for numerous infotainment, comfort and vehicle functions”.
Interestingly, Mercedes says the system’s so-called “zero layer” means the user “does not have to scroll through submenus or give voice commands”, with the most important applications “always offered in a situational and contextual way at the top level in view”.
The MBUX Hyperscreen is surrounded by a continuous plastic front frame, with its visible part painted in “Silver Shadow” in a three-layer process. In addition, Mercedes says the integrated ambient lighting installed in the lower part of the system makes the display unit “appear to float on the instrument panel”.
The front passenger gains a dedicated display and operating area, which becomes a “digital decorative part” (displaying animated stars) when the passenger seat is not occupied. Up to seven passenger profiles can be created.
Worried about what would happen in the event of a crash? Well, the Stuttgart-based company says it has included “predetermined breaking points” alongside the side outlet openings as well as five holders, which “can yield in a targeted manner” in a crash.
“With our MBUX Hyperscreen, a design vision becomes reality,” said Gorden Wagener, chief design officer at the 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.”
