Mercedes has introduced its new A-Class, which has more brains than any other automobile, thanks to its NVIDIA-powered AI cockpit.
The 2019 model of the A-Class is the first to offer the Mercedes-Benz User Experience — or “MBUX” — infotainment system. MBUX aims to reinvent the cockpit experience using rich, real-time 3D graphics and artificial intelligence powered by NVIDIA.
Updatable over the air, MBUX holds additional computational capabilities in reserve, enabling new applications to be deployed over the life of the vehicle. As speech and AI applications evolve, MBUX will be able to add new features and become a better mobile assistant.
AI-powered natural language processing will also help make interacting with the vehicle more natural — and safer — than ever before. MBUX understands indirect speech — instead of responding only to set phrases such as “raise temperature,” the car understands things people really say, like “I’m cold. Make it warmer in here.”
