QNX Software Systems Limited today announced that Mercedes-Benz has selected the QNX CAR™ platform to power the infotainment system in the Mercedes-Benz Concept S-Class Coupe, an exciting new concept vehicle created to showcase Mercedes-Benz’ latest advancements in user experiences for the car.
The concept car’s infotainment system brings the Mercedes-Benz design philosophy to life with a fresh and refined approach to the all-digital instrument cluster and head unit. The digital dials are functional yet sensual in the use of 3D and light, complementing the new interior. The use of particle effects conveys a sense of emotion to the head unit’s main menu and mood-based selection of music, while the new Garmin map strikes a balance between form and function so that you arrive in style.
“When you look at this car, you are looking at the near future of automotive connectivity and infotainment. It’s been a privilege to support our colleagues at Mercedes-Benz Research & Development North America on this project.”
The QNX CAR platform for infotainment systems is based on QNX® technology proven in tens of millions of vehicles. Designed for flexibility, the platform provides automotive companies with a rich suite of pre-integrated technologies for building connected infotainment systems that can keep pace with innovations in mobile apps and devices while maintaining automotive-grade reliability.
