It is assumed that the OLED screen will appear for the first time in its upcoming EQS luxury electric vehicle, which has a range of 700 km.
The EQS is supposed to be the first in a family of four vehicles built on the fully electric platform itself, and the company said there is huge customer demand for this screen, which will be an optional feature in the EQS.
In addition to including the car’s functions, such as: speedometer, music and navigation features, the screen allows passengers to access some of the car’s functions, and to watch TV without disturbing the driver in some markets.
Hyperscreen is the hub of the carmaker’s second-generation MBUX infotainment system that bypasses physical buttons in favor of a fully digital user experience and in-vehicle audio control.
Certainly, Hyperscreen is not a single screen, but rather it is made up of many screens embedded in one solid piece of curved glass that spans the entire dashboard.
Based on early images, it appears that there are at least three screens built-in: the steering wheel-mounted display, the central infotainment screen, and the additional front-passenger display.
Hyperscreen appears for the first time at EQS, a luxury electric sedan that Mercedes said will go into production in late 2021, and will be powered by MBUX, an acronym for Mercedes user experience.
First introduced in 2018, the MBUX infotainment system is one of the most capable, voice-controlled infotainment systems built by the automakers on the market.
Mercedes says: Hyperscreen includes something called zero layers, where the user no longer has to scroll through a variety of submenus or give voice commands because the most important apps are always available in an ad hoc and contextual manner at the top of the driver’s field of vision.
Mercedes places great emphasis on artificial intelligence that shows and suggests features when you need them, so the car offers you to call a contact if you talk to her regularly while you drive home.
The infotainment system saves drivers’ different preferences, such as: seat settings, interior lighting color, preferred radio station, and more.
The AI also automatically lifts the car based on your location, and remembers your preferred type of massage based on outside temperatures.
The screen uses anti-reflective Gorilla Glass, adjusts brightness automatically thanks to the camera and light sensor, and includes an eight-core CPU with 24 GB of RAM.
Hyperscreen includes a total of 12 motors located beneath the touch-sensitive surface for haptic feedback. Analog vents are embedded in the roof at both ends, providing a combination of digital and physical.
