[YesAuto Smart Car Association Evaluation] At the BYD booth at the Beijing Auto Show in 2018, DiLink 1.0 uses several smart cockpits as carriers to open up the experience to consumers. At that time, although Zebra 2.0 had already shined with the Roewe RX5 and other models, thanks to the open Android ecosystem, DiLink 1.0 still won the attention of all kinds of people including the media and consumers. Why is this?
With the advent of Song Pro, DiLink 2.0 officially struck, the same Android open ecosystem, but the system level and UI design have been deeply optimized, which is more perfect than the 1.0 era, but the domestic smart car linkage industry can be described as raging during the same period. Not only is the BAT competition more fierce, but even the veteran car association company PATEO has also joined the team battle. Under the background of your singing and my debut, DiLink 2.0 did not give people too much impression.
On July 12, 2020, BYD Han Ev was officially launched, along with DiLink 3.0. In this era when FOTA is nothing new, the iteration of in-vehicle systems could not be more common, but 3.0 has been placed high hopes, and we too I am curious, what kind of dream can BYD, which will open up the Android ecosystem, build for users as DiLink, which only serves BYD models? (Biuld Your Dream)
Conclusion first, Roewe RX5 PLUS takes the first place in the evaluation of intelligent car association with Zebra's latest VENUS system. One month later, this recorder was broken by BYD Han's DiLink 3.0. Judging from the distribution of the four major areas, the performance is excellent in human-computer interaction and function realization. Through some functions of high practical value, the scores of these two parts are separated from most on-board systems. In terms of service ecology and emotional communication, DiLink3.0 maintains a good standard like most head car systems. Let us analyze its secrets of success one by one.
The human-vehicle interaction part mainly considers the four levels of the central control screen, instrumentation, voice control, and physical buttons. At this stage, the above four parts are the main interactive carriers and methods. In daily driving, the interactive carrier is of indispensable importance, whether the information display of the instrument and the central control screen is clear enough, whether the layout is reasonable; whether the physical buttons or voice control can quickly achieve user needs in use. These comprehensive qualities not only determine driving safety, but also relate to the user stickiness of the intelligent networked system. To put it bluntly, the carrier and method will not work, and the user will basically be discouraged.
If you use two words to describe DiLink3.0, what I think of is: tolerance. And this is what gives me the best feeling. Whether it is writing articles or making products, we have been thinking about what users need, or catering to users' habits. But in fact, people are very different. How can the user's mind be so easy to guess? You love Baidu Maps and he loves AutoNavi. Which map software is on the main interface is left to the user to choose. Including such messages as active push, DiLink3.0 is made “live”, use it to open, and vice versa.
At the voice level, DiLink3.0 provides the most popular functions at the moment, and the similar sound source positioning function combined with the configuration of the vehicle itself can also get a good experience, but it is a bit regrettable that the One Shot and interrupt functions are not used in the whole scene. Although the high-frequency functions are covered, the “failure” in some scenarios can make people mistakenly think that it is a system problem.
The dashboard UI of the current system version is relatively simple. If you change the theme of the central control screen, the dashboard UI will look out of place, just like you go to a nightclub in a tuxedo. Of course, for this situation, BYD officials have also given a solution. In the future, there will be a theme of adapting meters for car owners to use.
At the level of bonus points, the NFC key touched me the most. In our past, we believed that if the vehicle has keyless entry and start functions, it will be more tasteless to unlock through the cloud, Bluetooth, and NFC. But in fact, the above methods are all to solve the need to bring one thing less when going out, but relying on mobile phones will always face network and power problems, and the NFC unlocking method can avoid this very well.
At the level of human-vehicle interaction, BYD Han's basic functions are very good. Voice control, physical buttons, screens, and meters are all in line with the current mainstream level in terms of recognition rate, function, hierarchical logic, size, and resolution, plus NFC. The unique configuration of keys, original recorders, wireless charging and even rotating screens has enabled Han to achieve good results in human-vehicle interaction.
The function realization level mainly conducts standardized tests on the high-frequency just-needed functions of the on-board system, such as map navigation, entertainment functions, parking images, communication, etc. These functions are often used by the driver in the car, and if these functions appear hard Injury or poor experience, then when the driver gets in the car, he will still skillfully open the navigation and put it on the mobile phone holder, or connect to CarPlay, then it is tantamount to a failure for the product manager of Autolink.
In the part of functional services, the high-frequency functions: navigation and music are well done. Both voice and touch operation are easy to use and not difficult to get started. At the same time, thanks to the open ecology, you can choose a variety of options. Various navigation and entertainment products, of course, may not support voice control in applications that have not been deeply customized, but it is completely fine to adapt to large screens. As for the shortcomings,
This part of the service ecology mainly focuses on pan-life applications on the in-vehicle system, such as ordering takeaways, booking hotels, or Taobao shopping, etc. It also includes more forward-looking smart homes, car-home networking applications, and in-vehicle systems and Does the vehicle control App have the ability to make appointments for rescue and maintenance?
In this part of the service ecology, the highlight of DiLink3.0 lies in the massive application market, where you can find all the software that you like to see on smart phones, such as video playback, takeaway, shopping, reviews, and games. Of course, these software are only adapted to a 15.6-inch display, and there are settings for functions such as voice control and other car scenes. Maybe you will find it very tasteless. Isn't it good to use a mobile phone to do these things? In fact, judging from user research data, many people are willing to use this large screen to watch videos, play games and even perform some operations.
In terms of communication favorability, we subjectively consider the performance of the system at the voice level, such as how to respond to unreasonable requests or unwilling commands. In addition, whether there is an avatar can reduce the coldness of the machine. From the perspective of the entire test and the later experience, DiLink3.0's response is more humane, and it can respond gently and without repetition in the face of needs that don’t understand and don’t know. The unique “Tai Chi” image of the 3.0 era is used in the interactive process. There will be a breathing effect, which can reduce the sense of distance between humans and machines.

From the performance point of view, BYDhan topped the list with DiLink3.0. The reason is nothing more than the gap between the human-computer interaction and the realization of functions and many opponents, while the service ecology and communication favorability have retained the current stage. Mainstream level.
We took about one day to shoot the video together with this test, and then we conducted a headlight test on the two models of Han. From the three-day contact between my colleagues and DiLink3.0, we can see that online music, map navigation, There are no regrets in the parking and voice control aspects, which basically meet most of the needs. The fly in the ointment is that Kuwo Music Library is not very friendly to non-member users. In addition, it's really good for people in the car to watch videos/swipe the vibrato on the big screen in the car. (Li Xiangtu Zheng Xu from Home of Wenqi)
