Mercedes-Benz Introducing Unity-Powered Operating System In 2024MY

Mercedes-Benz will introduce a new operating system across its models for the 2024 model year.

The new operating system, simply dubbed Mercedes-Benz Operating System, or MB.OS, will be developed by Unity Technologies and replace the existing MBUX infotainment platform used by all Mercedes models.

Unity Technologies is an expert in real-time 3D platforms and powers 70 per cent of all mobile games on the market. It is also a leader in augmented and virtual reality technologies. Designers from Mercedes-Benz will use Unity Industrial Collection, a complex 3D product visualization software package, to craft the user interface and user experience designs across the digital cockpit, including the instrument cluster, infotainment, and passenger displays.

Unity’s operating system will link all of Mercedes-Benz vehicles to the cloud and with the Internet of Things and comprise of four main areas: powertrain, autonomous driving, infotainment, and body and comfort systems.

“With our own operating system, we want to achieve three key things: to shape the user interface according to a luxury brand, to create a bidirectional communication with the customer and to integrate the digital lifestyle of the customer into the vehicle domain,” Mercedes-Benz chief software officer Magnus Östberg told Auto News.

The new Mercedes-Benz Operating System will come complete with audio and video streaming, in addition to immersive gaming and messaging applications. It will also offer augmented reality-enhanced experiences and use artificial intelligence to adjust vehicle settings depending on the habits and preferences of owners. This system was first previewed in the Mercedes-Benz Vision EQXX Concept and includes complex, real-time 3D graphics.

Unity says it was selected following a comprehensive evaluation process against other real-time 3D and Human Machine Interface (HMI) solutions.

“We will see entirely new visualizations powered by our Unity 3D-Game Engine, creating an extremely realistic representation of the real world,” Östberg added. “This is what we call ‘digital luxury’. ”
