2019 Mercedes A Class Telematics Feature
One of the strengths of MBUX is its intelligent voice control with natural language comprehension, which is activated by the words “Hey Mercedes”. The new LINGUATRONIC (included in MBUX with extended functions) supports many infotainment functions (e.g. destination input, phone calls, music selection, writing and hearing messages, weather forecast), as well as numerous convenience functions such as climate control/heating/lighting.
Conventional voice control systems in cars call for certain fixed commands from their users. Thanks to natural speech recognition, MBUX’s LINGUATRONIC, on the other hand, obeys virtually every command, recognises and understands nearly all sentences from the fields of infotainment and vehicle operation. For example, “Will the sun be shining tomorrow in Amsterdam?” is now understood equally as well as “Will the weather be fine in Amsterdam tomorrow?”.
The intelligent language assistance is activated either via a button on the steering wheel or with the command “Hey Mercedes”. It’s not the human who has to adapt to the machine, but the other way round. Indirect speech is also recognised, for instance if the user says “I am cold” instead of the clear command “Temperature to 24 degrees” in order to operate the climate control.
