Mercedes-Benz A-Class Debuts with NVIDIA-Powered AI and 3D Graphics

The new 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. The result is MBUX, a system that combines natural language processing, silky-smooth 3D graphics and an augmented reality boosted navigation system to bring new levels of intuitive interaction and safety to the vehicle. 

To achieve this, Mercedes selected NVIDIA technology with the highest compute performance any automaker has ever shipped in an infotainment system. 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.
