Mercedes-Benz “Fit & Healthy” at CES in Las Vegas: Comfort is becoming even more intelligent

Mercedes-Benz Fit & Healthy steht für Komfort, Sicherheit und Vitalität. Damit fördert das Fahrzeug der Zukunft stärker als je zuvor das Wohlbefinden seiner Passagiere im Auto und mit Mercedes me auch darüber hinaus. (englische Version) ; Mercedes-Benz Fit & Healthy stands for comfort, safety, and vitality. Therefore, the car of the future promotes the health of its passengers more vigorously than ever before while in the car and also beyond the car, with Mercedes me.;

Mercedes-Benz Fit & Healthy stands for comfort, safety, and vitality. Therefore, the car of the future promotes the health of its passengers more vigorously than ever before while in the car and also beyond the car, with Mercedes me.

Mercedes-Benz vehicles of tomorrow will enhance the fitness and well-being of their passengers in an even more individualised way while offering worlds of experience for all the senses. In connection with Mercedes me, Mercedes-Benz is also planning a holistic ecosystem to assist the user with an active and healthy lifestyle also when away from the vehicle.

The data that have been authorised by the user will be bundled in the vehicle’s own back-end to provide personalised recommendations for greater well-being and fitness, with key importance being attached to transparency, self-determination and data privacy. With the “Fit & Healthy” concept vehicle and the “Wall of Wishes” exhibit from Mercedes me, at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas Mercedes-Benz is giving a peek into the holistic concept as well as some specific features.

At Mercedes-Benz, “Intelligent Drive“ stands for the intelligent connectivity of systems, sensors and algorithms. Alongside safety and powertrain, comfort, too, is now becoming more intelligent:

The vision similar to the “Intelligent Drive” concept: sensors – either built into the vehicle or in a wearable – measure the driver’s vital parameters as well as data on the immediate and wider area around the vehicle. This information is merged and, by means of appropriate algorithms, the driver is presented with a tailor-made offer for enhancing their well-being.

Thanks to intelligent data connectivity, adaptive comfort and infotainment systems can, for example, reduce tiredness or stress to suit the particular situation, such as with the option to select a stress-free route on the navigation system. The following are conceivable: new-type seat massages, stimulating or relaxing music to suit the driver’s mood and traffic conditions, matching climate control including fragrancing and suitable ambience lighting.

A later stage of development will also include assistance from safety and assistance systems. This connectivity will result, for example, in a recommendation to the passengers to take a power nap. The navigation system can advise them of a suitable rest area. The previously described comfort systems would help first to relax the passengers and then to stimulate them again.

Strategic cooperation with Philips technology group

The importance of innovative and integrated wearable solutions in the Mercedes‑Benz of tomorrow is underlined by the strategic cooperation between Daimler AG and Philips, a leading provider in the field of healthcare technology. The aim is to advance wearable-based data acquisition in vehicles with consideration of high data protection standards in a joint research project with series production in the near future.

A comfortable new world is awaiting us!
