Mercedes-Benz GLS Class Will Make A Grand Entrance At Detroit

BMW reported record sales last year on strong demand for its sport-utility vehicles and the overhauled 1 Series compact

Daimler's Mercedes-Benz is launching its redesigned G-Class at the Detroit show with the claimed "world's biggest installation of synthetic resin".

Mercedes-Benz plans to debut the interface in its upcoming A-Class vehicles. This week the company delivered on that pledge at the 2018 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, with its presentation of a highly sophisticated infotainment system called MBUX (Mercedes-Benz User Experience). "The algorithm we use for this is optimized for on-board use in the vehicle and exploits the opportunities afforded by the latest chip generation".

On the visual side, a digital instrument panel and touchscreen feature minimalist displays that could make it easier for a driver to find and comprehend information or settings.

While Gorden Wagener, Mercedes-Benz's chief design officer, didn't go into detail about how the 3-D display will work, the screen behind him indicated the display would create the illusion of depth, rather than popping out toward the user.

Mercedes' maps are also developed in-house and use NVIDIA graphics acceleration to display a 3D representation of the vehicle and its environment.

The new MBUX interface will allow users to make changes through a graphical representation of their auto. Zac Estrada at The Verge reports that the system can recognise indirect speech.

With Mercedes me connected services, drivers can remotely lock and unlock their cars with their smartphones.

Mercedes says the system attunes itself to a specific user's voice, allowing it to more easily understand non-native speakers.

Powertrain options are still unknown, but the new Mercedes-Benz GLS is expected to get a range of four-cylinder, six-cylinder, and eight-cylinder diesel and petrol engines. It adapts to the preferences of its users and it offers "over the air updates".
