The Swabians will equip the modified S-Class model with advanced technologies that allow the driver and his companion to see a different image on one screen.
A system called Splitview, which will be integrated into the Comand infotainment system, is a joint development Mercedes and Bosch. The display, located on the center console, projects two different images, placing their pixels next to each other. A special filter that covers the screen allows only one of the projected images to be perceived at a certain angle.
For example, while the driver is watching the navigation system, his companion can watch a feature film with headphones. The innovative development will make its debut at the flagship stadium in Stuttgart in summer 2009.
