Mercedes-Benz, a division of Daimler, will introduce its MBUX hyperscreen, a large, curved screen that extends along the entire width of dashboards in front of both the driver and front passenger, at the upcoming all-digital CES 2021 tradeshow.

The hyperscreen will be integrated into the fully electric vehicle the EQS sedan and include artificial intelligence for controlling vehicular functions as well as the entertainment functions of the car, Mercedes-Benz said. However, the company was scant on details about what this means for passengers and drivers. This could mean the hyperscreen will be able to manage navigation functions or music or other types of entertainment or perhaps help run advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS).

Similar screens have been shown previously in prototype vehicles that were never meant for production use and a similar type touchscreen was announced as part of the M-Byte from Byton, a startup looking to develop new electric cars.

Mercedes-Benz will showcase the hyperscreen a week before CES and will demonstrate the screen during the show, which takes place Jan. 11-14.
