In addition to the function display in front of the steering wheel, the MBUX includes a central display and a separate infotainment and control display for the front passenger. The latter two are designed in OLED technology to achieve a particularly high contrast range.
The user interface is designed in such a way that the most important functional areas are directly accessible without having to dive deep into any menus; Daimler calls this level "Zero Layer".
Controlled by AI algorithms, the MBUX system is intended to develop a context-sensitive awareness in which both environmental changes and user behaviour permanently lead to an optimisation of processes. Mercedes-Benz has investigated the usage behaviour of the first MBUX generation. The vast majority of use cases fall into the areas of navigation, radio/media and telephony. The navigation application, with its full range of functions, is therefore always at the centre of the hyperscreen. The system stores the application preferences of up to seven people.
