ENERGIZING comfort control: Wellness while driving

Nov 28, 2018

The B-Class is the first compact model to have the Energizing comfort control, which networks different comfort systems in the vehicle. The intelligent solutions from the Energizing COACH in the ENERGIZING Package Plus are completely new. In general, the ENERGIZING comfort control systematically uses the functions of the air conditioning system and the seats (heater, ventilation, massage) as well as lighting and musical moods, and enables a specific wellness set-up tailored to the mood and need of the customer.

There are two ENERGIZING packages to choose from: The ENERGIZING package includes the Freshness and Vitality as well as the Training programmes (three training sessions – muscle relation, muscle activation and balance – each with several exercises). The training can also be carried out while on the move. In addition, in the ENERGIZING Package plus, the Heat, Pleasure and Comfort programmes are also available.

Each programme is designed for ten-minute period. They are visualised on the media display with colour graphics, and backed by suitable music, among other things. The main function of the "Joy" programme is massage, for example. There is also music which further underscores the mood of the programme on account of its rhythm. If personal music selections are available, e.g. via the Media Interface, the system analyses them in the background and assigns them to a programme based on the beats per minute. Individual functions of the programmes can be deactivated.

ENERGIZING comfort control also incorporates the ambience lighting, which is harmoniously tailored to each of the individual screen designs. The light stages the interior like a work of art by composing colour worlds from different colours, thereby creating a new, holistic comfort experience.

The ENERGIZING COACH is a new feature. Based on algorithms, this service makes customised programme recommendations. To this end the system first analyses current journey and vehicle data – this assessment includes aspects such as traffic conditions, weather or journey time. It then suggests the most suitable ENERGIZING comfort programme – Vitality or Joy. The ENERGIZING COACH represents the first step toward customised, customer-oriented comfort from Mercedes-Benz.
