Last month Mercedes-Benz released a teaser image of its MBUX Hyperscreen, an ultra-widescreen display with artificial intelligence that will debut in the upcoming Mercedes-Benz EQS electric sedan.
Now the German luxury automaker has images and released full details on the MBUX Hyperscreen, which it describes as “visually impressive, radically easy to operate and extremely eager to learn.” The MBUX Hyperscreen is made up of several different displays that merge seamlessly to create a single, uniform curved display that is over 56 inches wide and has 377 square inches of surface area. The display also features an integrated multifunction camera and light sensor, which detect the ambient light conditions to automatically adjust the brightness of the screen.
Another highlight of the MBUX Hyperscreen is the integrated artificial intelligence (AI) system, which learns the user’s behavior and preference and can adjust its operation based on these parameters. For example, the operating system may make suggestions for the screen layout or vehicle settings based on how often they are used. The driver can also speak to the system using voice commands by saying “Hey, Mercedes,” while they are in the vehicle.
“The MBUX Hyperscreen is both the brain and nervous system of the car,” Mercedes-Benz’s chief technical officer, Sajjad Khan, said in a statement. “The MBUX Hyperscreen continually gets to know the customer better and delivers a tailored, personalized infotainment and operating offerings without the occupant needing to click or scroll anywhere.”
The OLED MBUX Hyperscreen is similar to the widescreen OLED display that is found in the 2021 Cadillac Escalade, although it is quite a bit larger than Cadillac’s screen, spanning the width of the entire dashboard. It’s worth noting the MBUX Hyperscreen will be optional equipment in the Mercedes-Benz EQS, with a smaller, less advanced display screen set to come standard in the future EV. Cadillac’s OLED display is standard equipment in the Escalade.
More information on the MBUX Hyperscreen should become available following the Mercedes-Benz EQS debut later this year.
