New F 500 Mind research vehicle Mercedes showcases the automotive of the future

Tokyo To mark the of the 37th Tokyo Motor DaimlerChrysler Board Members Jürgen Hubbert and Dr. Thomas this morning unveiled the new F 500 research vehicle. This research laboratory gives an into how automotive technology is set to in the future and showcases more a dozen new technical features, Professor Jürgen Hubbert at the conference held on the Mercedes The F 500 Mind is thereby preparing the way for the of these technologies for use in series

With a body length of millimetres and a wheelbase of 2965 mm, the F 500 offers a significant gain in in the rear compared with saloons. This was made by using new electronic accelerator and pedals, which take up far space than their mechanical equivalents.

The multivision in the cockpit of the F 500 Mind forms the of an innovative instrumentation and control which offers the driver flexible communication of information and at the time reduces fatigue. The and displays in the instrument cluster are and their images can be optically or combined by means of a semitransparent An advanced voice-operated control and an ultrasound-based driver information take ease of operation to greater heights. The ultrasonic directs the sound at the driver so only he or she can hear the information the navigation system, the traffic and other sound-based information while the front passenger and passengers remain undisturbed.

In the dark or when visibility is the innovative night vision projects its images onto the monitor of the multivision display. The Vision system consists of two laser headlamps on the front of the which illuminate the road with their invisible for a distance of up to 150 metres, plus a on the windscreen. This allows the to spot hazards much than in a vehicle operating conventional dipped headlamps, that Night Vision yet more scope for making driving safer.

The drive in the research vehicle is a state-of-the-art hybrid unit with a power output of 234 kW. Over the driving cycle it uses up to 20 per less fuel than a direct-injection diesel engine.

Folding lab table with for monitoring the vehicle systems

The will never cease to be This is borne out by the Mercedes-Benz F 500 which was presented at the 2003 Motor Show. The four-door designed as a modern fastback served as a research lab on wheels and over a dozen technical for enhancing the safety, propulsion and of future Mercedes-Benz passenger

This begins with the drive, the first in the luxury car It has the ability to utilize different energies. If a great deal of is required, a V8 diesel engine 184 kW (250 hp) drives the F 500 Mind and charges the batteries, because the car features a 50 kW electric motor works by itself or jointly the internal combustion engine. and motor are perfectly coordinated by an control unit on the basis of situation and driving style. The motor, for instance, powers the car the latter starts off, in traffic and in other situations in the internal combustion engine not develop its optimum efficiency due to its principle. When the driver higher engine output, the V8 cuts in and ensures dynamic The electric drive’s 300-volt located underneath the passenger is recharged during braking. The of this sophisticated engineering is economy improved by up to 20 percent, in city traffic, and significantly emissions compared with a propulsion system. The concept of the F 500 already anticipates future regulations.

Novel door

The developers also came up new ideas to make boarding and even more comfortable. the variable door concept, can be opened in the conventional way or in the opposite (the so called butterfly as required.

In conventional mode, the doors swivel forwards, of one other and through a maximum of 90 degrees. If more comfortable is desired in the rear, the B-pillar a design attached to the side can be unlocked after the opening of the door. Together with the door, this pillar swivels backward through up to 90 thereby clearing a 1.9-meter-wide without the B-pillar being in the The B-pillar is firmly connected to the by means of an electro-mechanical locking and can be electrically released by a simple of a button.

Bodywork structure: roof pillar in the interior

The variable door concept and the of top-to-bottom

B-pillars faced the engineers with a great in designing the body-in-white. Their was to find an alternative to the B-pillars usually render an important to the structural rigidity and crashworthiness of the Roof pillars and frames larger cross-sections were out of the as they would have the driver’s all-round view as as the occupants’ boarding comfort.

simulations based on the finite-element finally prompted the experts in to come up with the idea of a roof pillar in the middle of the bodywork. It serves as a sturdy between the transmission tunnel and the roof structure. Together the additional cross-bracing in the floor and side-skirt profiles which are effective in a lateral impact, the pillar affords high of bending resistance and torsional

The novel structural element its special design to a study the driver’s vision, specifically out for this purpose. The result: the curved shape of the central ensures that the driver’s of the sides and the rear is not impeded in any

Over and above this, the of a central pillar offers new in climate control. The engineers air ducts in the pillar cladding, run upward to the middle roof where individually adjustable nozzles for the rear passengers are Special luminous surfaces are also integrated in the central discreetly and yet effectively illuminate the compartment together with the lighting of the transmission tunnel.

The roof makes for a light-flooded compartment. With a body of 5.09 meters and a wheelbase of 2.97 meters, the car offers more legroom in the rear other sedans in this Progress comes in the form of electronic accelerator and brake They consist of force-sensitive with sensors which the driver’s commands to the engine and the brake system in the form of pulses. The greater the driver’s pressure on a pressure plate, the vigorously the car is accelerated or braked. novel pedals take up space than conventional and hardly protrude into the compartment, thereby enlarging the footwell by 12 centimeters. The driver’s and passenger’s seats can thus be forward to provide more for rear-seat passengers. At the same passive safety is enhanced as the are not pushed into the interior in a crash. The steering of the research car is controlled as well.

Novel display and operating

The multi-vision display in the cockpit of the F 500 forms the key element of a novel and display concept which drivers a wider range of while at the same time them of stress. The gauges on the are freely programmable, and their information can be superimposed by means of a mirror or combined with other. Hence, at the push of a button, drivers are able to up numerous items of information is always displayed well their field of vision but distracting them. Another above the center console is with a touchpad whose are structured in the same way as the display. this unit, drivers the navigation system, car radio, air phone and other systems by lightly tapping on the touchpad.

switches and buttons are fitted special sensors which identify the driver’s approaching at a distance of several inches. The display then instantly to the relevant function so as to facilitate

A further developed voice system and a driver information based on ultrasonic technology additional operational comfort. ultrasonic technology, only the hears the navigation system’s traffic news and other information the front and rear of the F 500 Mind are not disturbed.

Night system for enhanced driving in the dark

In the dark or under visibility conditions, the novel view assist function is in the right-hand display of the instrument It consists of two infrared laser at the car’s front end, invisible light illuminates the up to 150 meters ahead. A camera in the of the F 500 Mind records these light as it is reflected by other cyclists or pedestrians, and converts the into an unambiguous black-and-white which is shown in the multi-vision The driver thus becomes of potential danger spots earlier than when on the standard low-beam headlights illuminate some 40 meters of the ahead.

Workplace on the passenger side

a research lab on wheels, the F 500 Mind is with a special lab table can be folded back and comes with a computer. The researcher in the rear was thus able to and control the vehicle’s systems trial driving, and to carry out This is because the research car was among other things, for acceptance tests on the novel and display concept, as well as for tests with the diesel drive and the night view function.
