Published on January 10, 2018

Everything is becoming increasingly digital these days. Technology has managed to seem into most segments of the market, including the automobile sector as well. Mercedes-Benz is often the first of most automobile manufacturers to embrace any new trend. On the similar line, the company has showcased a new type of user interface at the Consumer Electronics Show, 2018 on Tuesday, 9th January 2018.

Mercedes-Benz unveils new interface with 3D display, voice controls

According to a report published by Business Insider, the interface has been given the name, ‘MBUX’ which is also known as Mercedes-Benz User Experience. The latest interface introduced by the company goes on to feature a three-dimensional digital display along with the touchscreen, a voice control, and over-the-air update facilities.

It’s not like these features are not common in luxury vehicles, however, Mercedes-Benz reportedly hopes that their MBUX interface will be unique in comparison to its competitors, especially due to its simple and intuitive design. When it comes to considering the visual aspect of MBUX, the system features a minimalistic design. It becomes easier for drivers to discover and sort out information or settings accordingly. Users will also be provided with the opportunity to view menus in two as well as three-dimensional technology.

Mercedes-Benz’s chief design officer, Gorden Wagener essentially took over when it came to delivering the keynote. However, he did not go into the details of how the 3D display will work. The screen behind him portrayed most of the information and on the basis of that, it seems like the display will create an illusion of depth, rather than actually popping out for the users.

He went on to demonstrate how drivers would be able to use a graphical representation of their vehicles to bring about certain changes to their settings. It is still uncertain when exactly this feature will be launched for official use in Mercedes-Benz vehicles.
