The 2022 Mercedes-Benz EQS gets the new LG infotainment system for its pillar-to-pillar Hyperscreen
As the leader in large and mid-size OLED display production, LG made its mark in the red-hot automotive displays market by offering a unique dual-stack OLED technology with at least a 10-year lifespan that solves the issue of blue diodes deterioration with time. Moreover, the flexible OLED technology (a plastic instead of a glass substrate) that LG uses in conjunction with the dual-stack method allows for some innovative takes on the good ol' infotainment system. Nowhere is that more visible than in the 2022 Mercedes-Benz EQS electric performance sedan whose display is rightfully called the Hyperscreen. Stretching from one pillar to the other in the vehicles, it flows and shapes with the design of the dashboard looking as seamlessly integrated as they come.
Mercedes-Benz unveiled its MBUX Hyperscreen concept at the CES 2020 expo and it is now ready to shine in commercially available electric vehicles. The MBUX consists of several elements like an Instrument Cluster Display (ICD) LCD panel, and two flexible OLED displays towards both ends - a Central Information Display (CID) and Co-Driver Display (CDD) - with all panels bonded under a single cover glass to become one whole Hyperscreen. Not only will LG be providing the OLED panels for the unique Mercedes EQS pillar-to-pillar Hyperscreen, but, after debuting in the Renault Mégane E-Tech Electric, the luxury EV will also land LG's new premium in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) system software to go along for the ride:
Working closely together, LG and Mercedes-Benz AG engineers are taking in-vehicle displays such as instrument panels and navigation systems to a new level, providing drivers and passengers with greater convenience and control of their on-road experience. The visually-pleasing IVI system in the Mercedes-Benz EQS EV not only raises the bar for ease-of-use but also safety, featuring new technologies that perform well above minimum standards for head-on and collisions.
