Mercedes-Benz to develop 3D displays for its cars

Article by Christian A., on July 26, 2011

The competition among automakers in terms of new technologies is tough. Mercedes-Benz isn’t the type to get left behind though as it has installed screens on its 2011 A-Class Concept that are capable of 3D display of differently arranged navigation levels.

Audi had recently released a preview of the MMI, its next-generation human-machine interface technology that features advanced hand-gesture recognizing touchpads that could supply palpable signals and feedback.

When using Mercedes’ screens, the driver is being guided around the spatial depth of this menu structure by some flowing movements as well as fluidly animated transitions.

Mercedes-Benz said that with its three-dimensional on-screen presentations, information could be absorbed more intuitively. It explained that this will be the case in the future as most functions will be covered by voice control and will be supported by gestures and touch. This means that e-mails and cellphone messages could be dictated.

There’s another feature dubbed “free voice browsing,” which has the driver conversing with the vehicle. A driver could ask a simple question such as the weather and the car would then answer.

According to bymothorauthority.com, Mercedes-Benz aims to lessen driver distractedness by making everything as hands-free as possible. It isn’t clear yet just when these technologies will be seen on Mercedes models.

This fall, several features for the current COMAND Online multimedia system will become available. This includes new apps for Facebook, Twitter and Google.
