The new Benz - Very different....really different!...

This is the new Mercedes Benz SCL600.

This car is really different.

That either.



.....and now for the 'really different' part:

Here is what is different.




No steering wheel, you drive it with a joystick. No pedals either.
Can you drive with a joystick? Your kids and grandkids probably can.
The influence of video games in our lives has really arrived, wouldn't ya say?

SCARY THOUGHT THAT NOW A 7 YEAR OLD COULD STEAL YOUR CAR AND PROBABLY DRIVE IT BETTER THAN YOU.

Origins:   
These images of afuturistic "new Mercedes-Benz SCL600" automobile — including technicalinnovations such as a joystick in place of a steering wheel, a videomonitor in place of a rear-view mirror, and swiveling gull-wing doors —are difficult to classify as "true" or "false." They are genuinephotographs of a real car, but that car was constructed as a researchvehicle, not as something to be made available for purchase byconsumers (although some of its features may have been, or soon may be,incorporated into commercially-available models), and it isn't really "new" (in a technological sense), as it was introduced over ten years ago.

The above-displayed photos are pictures of DaimlerChrysler's F 200concept study, produced by the Mercedes-Benz design team and unveiledat the Paris Motor Show in 1996 to show off "groundbreaking systems forimproving safety and comfort in passenger cars" and demonstrate "justhow technical innovations could open up new avenues for the styling offuture top-of-the-range cars." The full DaimlerChrysler press releasedescribed the vehicle thusly:



Vehicle: F 200 Imagination
Introduced in: 1996
Where: Paris Motor Show
Goals: Testing of new ergonomics concepts based on drive-by-wire technology; cockpit design
Drive: Four-stroke spark-ignition engine, 12 cylinders, 6.0 litersdisplacement, 290 kW (394 hp), rear-wheel drive, 5-speed electronicallycontrolled automatic transmission
Technical highlights:

Sidesticks instead of a steering wheel: drive-by-wire
  o Forward-looking driving dynamics control
  o Active Body Control (ABC)
  o Headlight system featuring variable light distribution
  o Production launch as bi-xenon headlights with active light system in the Mercedes-Benz E-Class (W 211)
  o Video cameras in place of a rearview mirror
  o Electro-transparent panoramic glass roof: Production launch in 2002 in the Maybach 62
  o Swiveling gullwing doors: Production launch in 2003 in the Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren
  o Voice recognition for mobile phone: Production launch in 1996 underthe name LINGUATRONIC in the Mercedes-Benz S-Class (W 140)

Does the car of the future still have a steering wheel andfoot-operated controls? The Mercedes-Benz F 200 Imagination, presentedat the 1996 Paris Motor Show, serves to test a new ergonomics conceptand is the product of the joint efforts of engineers and designers.Sidesticks — little joysticks in the doors and the center console forsteering and braking — replace the steering wheel. This is impossiblewithout electronic assistance, and so the technology is calleddrive-by-wire.

Where until now exclusively mechanical elements have existed which aredirectly activated by pulses of force emanating from the driver, theseare now linked with electric and hydraulic actuators whose desiredactions are determined by electronic pulses. If the driver pushes thesidestick forward, the F 200 Imagination accelerates. If he moves thelever to the right or left, the vehicle steers to the right or left. Ifhe pulls the lever back, the vehicle brakes and, if desired, afterstopping drives in reverse. To get a little relief the driver canswitch the system to the front seat passenger and his sidesticks.

Drive-by-wire is a technical solution entailing consequences — for theinterior, for example. If there is no more steering wheel and no morepedals, the passengers have more space and thus more comfort. It alsoserves safety since the cockpit and the footwell can be designedcompletely different.

The F 200 Imagination embodies the thoroughgoing networking ofelectronic systems. One result is its advanced driving dynamicscontrol. The electronics recognize the driver’s commands as requestsfor a certain driving state — accelerate, brake, steer, reverse — anddecide in a flashhow to comply with the commands in the best and safest manner. This issituational in nature because the computer utilizes the information ofvarious sensors which tell it the road speed, wheel revolutions, enginerevolutions, road condition and body motions. Based on this data, thecomputer decides, for example, how sharply the wheels should be angled during cornering or what engine speed is appropriate for driving on a wet road.

The system is interlinked with the Active Body Control (ABC). Even whenthe going gets risky, the electronics keep the car safely on coursethrough lightning-fast intervention in steering, braking, engine ortransmission management and chassis control. The driver can fullyutilize the technical capabilities of his car without transgressing thephysical limits — a genuine advantage for safety. The electronicallycontrolled rear spoiler system of the F 200 Imagination also assistshim at this, setting itself upright in a flash and acting as a drag forbetter deceleration when an emergency braking situation is detected.

The F 200 Imagination research car presents further innovativetechnology. For example, the headlights featuring variable lightdistribution: Six individual reflectors in each module, each with aseparate bulb, are switched on and off depending on situation and speedin order to provide optimal light for driving at all times withoutblinding oncoming traffic. In curves, the light follows the wheel angleset by the driver, enhancing safety for night-time driving. At highspeeds on superhighways an additional spot reflector is engaged tobetter illuminate the roadway far ahead. Innovations at the rear endtoo: the very compact taillight unit incorporates nine separatefunctions. The inconspicuous turn signal is a slender, arched neon tubedistinguished by high luminous power and long life.

Safety is always stressed by Mercedes-Benz, as demonstrated in the F200 Imagination by the first-ever window airbag, which inflates itselfacross the side walls and considerably reduces the risk of headinjuries in side crashes and rollovers. Since the coupe study does nothave a conventional steering wheel, the front airbags are incorporatedin a kneepad underneath the dashboard.

Instead of conventional rearview mirrors the experts employ a videosystem with five permanently installed minicameras. Four of them arediscreetly concealed in the roof frame struts on each side of the carand, out on the road, constantly have an eye on the areas next to andbehind the F 200 Imagination. The fifth camera is in the rear bumperand automatically switches on when the vehicle backs up. The imagesappear on various monitors in the vehicle interior where theconventional mirrors otherwise would be located.

In passing, so to speak, the F 200 Imagination also showed what alarge, modern coupe might look like — heralding essential designfeatures of the Mercedes-Benz CL which debuted in 1999. The F 200Imagination has a transparent roof to flood the interior with light.Its special feature: the electro-transparent glass can be darkened atthe push of a button to avoid excessive heating of the interior due tostrong insulation. The glass has an intermediate layer, a liquidcrystal film made of electrically conductive plastic. Electric currentcauses its crystals to array themselves so that the glass istransparent. In the meantime, this roof can be purchased in a car builtby DaimlerChrysler: the Maybach 62.

In the sum of its characteristics, the F 200 Imagination is apioneering research vehicle, particularly its electronics, which enablenew concepts and will play a bigger role in future cars. Of course,they must be subjected to intensive testing before they go intoproduction. The F 200 Imagination played an important part in this andwas forerunner of a Mercedes-Benz SL of the R 129 series that wasequipped with electronic steering and sidesticks for test purposes in1998 and thoroughly road-tested.

Some of the findings: steering, braking and accelerating using asidestick do require one to learn to think differently, but open up newdimensions in respect of driving dynamics, ride comfort and handlingsafety. The steering ratio and steering forces can be made variable andadapted to the particular situation — differently for parking than fornegotiating a fast curve. To brake, the foot no longer has to be movedfrom the gas pedal to the brake pedal, so that the driver can respondmore quickly.

哇唠~
炫耶。。。
用joystick来驾驶,好特别的新尝试咯~
