4D Comfortable Navigation: This mode is based on the industry’s first AI chassis technology, with 32 levels of suspension softness and hardness, providing 8 strategies. When encountering large potholes, speed bumps, bridge connections, and undulating roads, the suspension can prepare the suspension height in advance, adjust the damping control strategy proactively, and achieve a more comfortable and stable driving experience. At the same time, NIO’s 4D Comfortable Navigation also has a memory function. After activating the auxiliary passing function in the 4D memory suspension on the same road section, the suspension will automatically adjust to the highest position when passing through again, avoiding repetitive actions every time.

Map Update: The map’s interactive interface has been optimized. When the car approaches an intersection, the map will automatically adjust the display scale for a more detailed road surface effect, increasing readability and aesthetics. At the same time, the system will suggest the best driving route based on the traffic ahead.

No microphone karaoke: This time, the no microphone karaoke function has been upgraded, picking up sound through the microphone in the entire cabin, achieving the no microphone karaoke function in different scenarios such as parking/driving, solo/duet/group singing. At the same time, this function also supports various apps such as national karaoke, QQ music, NetEase Cloud Music, and Kugou Music.

NOMI Cabin Memory: The memory function of NOMI has been upgraded again, bringing the first personalized memory for all passengers in the cabin. Based on facial recognition, passengers sitting in the front passenger seat and the second row can be easily recognized. NOMI Cabin Memory can also remember names, and users can use names and nicknames in commands. After facial recognition, a passenger account is established, and privacy data is encrypted only within the vehicle to ensure privacy is not leaked. The system can support up to 19 accounts. After the memory is generated, there is no need to call out the wake-up word, you can directly talk to NOMI. In situations such as getting on and off the car or holidays, NOMI will also greet passengers actively, providing a better interactive experience. In addition, NOMI also supports cabin-wide wake-up-free, can accurately distinguish commands, and refuse to execute non-command phrases. The most eye-catching feature is that when four passengers in the front and rear rows give commands at the same time, NOMI can accurately recognize and complete the commands. At the same time, NOMI’s continuous commands are also more powerful, even if 15 commands are given in a row, they can all be accurately completed.

GOA’s general obstacle warning and assistance functions are developed by NIO’s full-stack self-research, based on the leading NADArch architecture and the new BEV, grid-occupying perception technology, combined with collective intelligence, to achieve efficient iterative capabilities. When encountering non-standard obstacles, it can help avoid or reduce injuries and reduce the occurrence of accidents. The lookout tower’s structured lidar brings a faster and farther response to obstacles, allowing GOA’s effective speed range to be higher. The upgraded version will support a maximum braking speed of 90km/h. In nighttime scenarios, perception and response speed remain at a high level.

Continuous iteration has also been carried out in the AEB aspect, and this version brings full-range AEB. The effective response speed range is 4-150km/h; the effective braking speed range of the rear AEB is 4-15km/h, comprehensively improving the safety of user driving. The MAI+ full-scene false acceleration suppression assistance: can achieve the false acceleration suppression of new vehicles against common obstacles in the stationary state. AES+ enhanced automatic emergency steering: on the basis of surpassing the AEB braking ability, it can achieve automatic steering avoidance according to environmental space. #Daddy’s Choice#
