Hey, Mercedes! Voice-Activated Assistant Drives New MBUX System

Mercedes Benz has launched its latest all-new infotainment system called MBUX at the Consumer Electronics Show held in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Like other new Mercedes, it features a wide screen as well as touch control buttons on the steering wheel. Alternatively, customers will be able to select a range-topping dual 10.25-inch display system with a resolution of up to 1920x720 pixels (200 dpi).

The system uses a Linux base and actually has decent hardware for auto infotainment standards - 8 Gb RAM, a six-core CPU and graphics by Nvidia. Taking the feedback to heart, Mercedes announced the new infotainment system during the CES 2018.

"On the one hand, it attunes to the user and her voice and also understands non-native speakers better; on the other hand, the software models on the server learn new buzzwords or changing use of language with time", Mercedes-Benz said in a statement. The display on the screens is visually very clear and modern-looking, while the menus are tiered to make the most-used functions immediately accessible. It adapts to the preferences of its users and it offers "over the air updates". To command the vehicle to do something, users can simply say "Hey Mercedes". One unique feature of this system is its ability to learn thanks to artificial intelligence. What's more, Mercedes said owners can connect the MBUX to their smart watches, from which they can remotely interact with their cars. The map display is enhanced with augmented reality technology by leveraging the front camera, for example arrows and house numbers are superimposed directly onto the image.
