Mercedes-Benz to Offer Choice of Sounds for Electric Vehicles

Mercedes-Benz announced last week that they are planning to offer "selectable soundscapes" for their future electric cars. In addition to the normal engine noises (electric vehicles are required by law to produce sounds that alert pedestrians that an EV is moving), Mercedes wants to provide drivers with engine sounds played through the interior speakers.  They will change as the vehicle accelerates, brakes, etc. The sounds will be artificially generated and piped through the infotainment system. They are also planning to develop unique sounds to alert drivers when the vehicle is unlocked, when it’s fully charged, etc. Well, at Fremont Auto Center we are happy to hear that Mercedes is ready with the electric vehicles - Mercedes EQC crossover was supposed to be introduced in the US in 2020 but the introduction was delayed due to the pandemic We are the premier Mercedes-Benz repair shop in Fremont, so when Mercedes EQC hits the road, our nationally ASE certified te ... read more



Mercedes-Benz and NVIDIA Partnership Helps Mercedes-Benz Vehicles to Become Smarter

NVIDIA and Mercedes Benz announced a strategic partnership – Mercedes will install NVIDIA technology in all Mercedes models, giving them the ability to have software updates throughout the life of the car. The promise is that it will be “as easy as updating your cell phone’s operating system”. The more interesting news is that installing NVIDIA technology also means that Mercedes Benz vehicles will have Artificial Intelligence (AI) software and surround sensors to make use of it (Autonomous vehicle AI is useless without sensors to tell it what’s going on around the vehicle). So the new Mercedes should be able to have automated parking, as well as be able to autonomously drive regular routes (did you ever want to catch a nap while commuting?). Naturally there will be advanced driver assist features and collision avoidance features that are already part of high end Mercedes vehicles.  NVIDIA is a leader in autonomous vehicle software and computing sys ... read more
