Mercedes unveils innovative new S-Class HUD displayJuly 29, 2020
The press service of the German automaker has published a video showing the operation of the head-up display of the new Mercedes-Benz S-Class. The peculiarity of such a display is that it will receive augmented reality technology.
The advertising campaign for the next generation of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class luxury sedan continues. One of the features of the new items will be a head-up display with augmented reality technology. We have already been shown how this technology works. This time, the press service of the German automaker published a video on the social network Facebook, which shows in more detail the work of the AR-HUD.
The driver of the new S-Class sees a computer-generated image of an arrow projected onto the windshield that swoops in, rolls, and typically “flies” over the glass as the car moves down the roundabout.
We are then shown red lines outlining the edge of the corner as you go and turn. Shows strange glowing lights appearing under the cars you drive. And yes, they are floating checkered flags hovering at locations that you mark as route endpoints in the navigation system. These are all the Merc AR AR-HUD features that we see in this new video.
This is part of the process for the next generation S-Class. It is known that the interior of the novelty will offer up to five digital screens, and the central one will have a diagonal of 12.8 inches – this is the main screen of the infotainment system. The driver will interact with a fully digital instrument cluster, and passengers can have separate screens that can display what is seen on the front screen of the main screen.
The next generation of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class executive sedan is due to debut in September.
Not so long ago, our publication wrote that Mercedes-Benz showed a new T-Class model on a teaser. In a couple of years, the model line of the German automaker will be replenished with the T-Class passenger compact van, which will take its rightful place in the segment of “family” cars.
