|In today’s modern world, technology has become a staple in our daily life. With the help of the Internet of Things (IoT), all kinds of smart home systems and digital assistants are becoming more popular as the technology that drives them becomes better integrated. The same can also be applied to transportation too. Recently, Mercedes-Benz is adopting Samsung’s SmartThings technology. User is able to control tons of devices through the new S-Class’ MBUX infotainment system with Samsung’s SmartThings.
Concept of IoT
Firstly, what is the concept of SmartThings or the Internet of Things(IoT)? Let me elaborate. IoT serves as an open framework for connected devices that allows them to integrate into the user’s life, despite being made by 120 different manufacturers. Wild indeed.
According to the global vice president, IoT & Business Development at SmartThings, “SmartThings is focused on accelerating the creation of an open IoT ecosystem powered by its technology and is continuously innovating to connect all smart devices with one another.” In addition, Ralf Elias also stated that “Powering car-to-home and home-to-car capabilities is the next logical step in that journey, and we’re thrilled to bring SmartThings to an important environment where people spend a lot of their time – their Mercedes-Benz.”
Therefore, IoT is shaping the way we live our lives while helping us to get a better insight into the working of things around us.
MBUX of Mercedes-Benz
Besides, the MBUX of Mercedes-Benz can understand natural speech. As a result, interacting with SmartThings network will be very easy and convenient. For instance, the user can ask questions like “Hey Mercedes, is anyone at home?” or “Hey Mercedes, can you make the sound of an elephant?” and your high-tech Teutonic Luxo-barge will tell you.
Mercedes’ 2021 S-Class will launch around the first half of 2021 with a likely starting price for the V6 version somewhere just north of $100,000.
