[CES 2012] Mercedes-Benz USA intends to usher in vehicle technology of today, tomorrow and the future when CES 2012 rolls around this weekend. Among the innovations that are on display at the Mercedes-Benz USA booth would include the mbrace2, touted to be Mercedes-Benz’s pioneering communications platform, where it is said to deliver the “most comprehensive cloud-based system to date”, helping empower drivers to customize their driving experience in order to cater to constantly changing needs. The mbrace2 system will offer a wide range of features and services that are related to safety, information, entertainment, personal assistance and vehicle care.
Among these will comprise cloud-based apps, traffic and navigation assistance, speech recognition, Internet browsing and searching, concierge services, and automatic crash notifications amongst others. Those who have the dough can pony up some cash for the re-designed MY2013 Mercedes-Benz SL, and check out mbrace2 running right from the get-go. Apart from that, the mbrace2 smartphone app allows one to communicate and send information to your vehicle prior to arriving at the car. Forget about losing yourself in a massive car park anymore – you can use this app to locate your vehicle, lock or unlock it, set valet parking protection, and even receive geo-fence alerts.
