Mercedes Concept Car

Showcasing QNX's vision of user-centric infotainment systems and digital instrument clusters in a modified Mercedes-Benz CLA45 AMG. The car’s in-dash infotainment system offers a multi-modal user experience that blends touch, voice, physical buttons, and a multi-function controller, enabling users to interact with the vehicle in the way that is most natural for them. To provide highly accurate voice interaction, the system includes automatic speech recognition from Nuance, which helps the driver stay focused on the road while making a hands-free call or asking the navigation system for directions. And on the subject of navigation, the system offers a choice of navigation engines from Elektrobit, HERE (a Nokia business), and Kotei Informatics, illustrating how automotive companies can quickly customize the QNX CAR Platform for Infotainment for multiple geographies and languages.
