Mercedes-Benz' Version of the Human-Machine Interface

Recently, Audi showed its next generation human-machine interface technology which wowed all car enthusiasts.

Not to be left behind, Mercedes-Benz updated the A-Class concept with a 3D screen. Although, for now, the only thing that it can do is to show multi-level views for its nav system, which Mercedes says will give more intuitive information absorption.

The company also promises that the future systems will have a voice and touch command, not only for the nav system, but also for other electronic systems. Imagine yourself, not lifting your hands off the wheel but changing your car radio's tuner just by commanding it.

The future cars will have free voice browsing that allows the driver to speak naturally and still engage with the system. It will be as if they will be speaking to another human instead of a machine that only understand keystrokes and cryptic commands. All these are being developed to ensure that you will have a nice distraction-free driving.
