Long-Term Partners Continue Work to Further Enhance a Humanized MBUX for Drivers and Passengers
BURLINGTON, Mass., December 3, 2019 – Cerence Inc. (NASDAQ: CRNC), AI for a world in motion, today announced continued innovation and development collaboration with Daimler on its Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX) multimedia system.
One of the most revolutionary and feature-rich infotainment systems on the market today, MBUX provides an elegant, personalized and connected experience through Cerence solutions for Mercedes-Benz drivers and passengers worldwide. As long-term partners, both companies share a mission for safety, productivity, and entertainment in the car and have created a natural, conversational experience that redefines how a car should feel, respond and learn on the go.
Through AI-powered learning, the system is personalized for each user, creating an emotional connection between drivers, passengers and their vehicles. Summoned with a simple, “Hey Mercedes,” MBUX first became available in 2018 in the A-Class before rolling out to additional car lines including the B-Class, GLE and GLC.
“MBUX remains one of the most revolutionary multimedia and infotainment systems on the market today and has been a significant step forward in the industry,” said Sanjay Dhawan, CEO, Cerence. “We are incredibly proud of our work with Daimler over the years as Nuance Automotive, and now as Cerence, we’re more committed than ever in helping Daimler extend its track record of innovations that redefine moving experiences for vehicles and transform the world of mobility.”
