  7. "New Ship Version" Roewe...

[YesAuto Smart Car Link Evaluation] In our Smart Car Link test list, you can see the Zebra Zhixing 2.0 and MARS 3.0 equipped on different models, and now, we ushered in VENUS 4.0 on the Roewe RX5 PLUS . In the past year, Zebra Zhixing has iterated on two major versions, as if upgrading from iOS 12 to iOS 14. Although the speed of the iteration is a bit “surprising”, I can’t help but doubt its sincerity, but after detailed testing, it responsibly Said: VENUS 4.0 is indeed the “new version of the ship” you have never experienced before, brothers! Just come… have a look.

The two high-end models of the four models use a 12.3-inch “combined instrument”, and the lower two models use traditional instruments equipped with a 3.5-inch driving computer screen.

Human-vehicle interaction

Zebra first released the concept of A/B world interaction in the VENUS version , that is, the two homepages, the map navigation interface and the custom function interface can be switched with one click.

This design obviously saves a certain amount of hardware cost than the traditional 12.3-inch full LCD instrument panel, but combined with the price and actual experience, we are not disgusted with this design.

Nowadays, more and more brand models, especially the voice systems of new car forces, are beginning to adopt this form of cooperation, combining the best of each family, trying to make some fresh tricks in this “boring” field.

Roewe RX5 PLUS does have its own tricks. We have previously reported that iFLYTEK’s voice capability can achieve a wake-up time and can directly issue instructions for up to 90 seconds without repeating “Hello, XX “Wake up words.

The realization of this function benefits from Dharma Academy's noise cancellation technology, because there are many interferences in the car, such as music played by the audio, novels, and normal communication among passengers in the car. The system needs to distinguish these “confused audio” . In the long-term radio reception process, if the passenger's normal communication or the radio sound triggers the voice function by mistake, it will seriously affect the user experience.

The traditional “multi-round interaction” technology supports us after we issue the instruction “how is the weather today”, and continue to ask “what about tomorrow” or “Shanghai”. The system can understand that you are asking about the weather, not how to get to Shanghai.

Text entry takes about 10 minutes, and cloud background training takes about 2 hours. For such a fresher function, the time-consuming is generally acceptable.

Now we can understand that on the voice system of Roewe RX5 PLUS, Zebra is trying to achieve a series of “chain reactions”. We can talk to a friend like “Hey, I want to listen to the live version” or “Go to the supermarket halfway” (Shuangquan) Work + multi-round interaction + spoken language); your assistant has a “face-to-direction”, she is always listening to you (zone control + full duplex), and of course the little partner sitting in the co-pilot can also give it to you The assistant gave the order, but he had to say a wake-up word to make the assistant “turn to him”, as if saying “Hey, listen to me”.

On the one hand, the development of voice control is to cover broader functions and help you do more things; on the other hand, it is a more natural way of communication, making the voice system closer to the communication between people (human-like interaction) ), Zebra VENUS and Roewe RX5 PLUS have taken a big step in this.

Function realization

It is the value of the applet that can be controlled by voice like the native functions of the car, and can be called and coordinated with the native functions. Otherwise, it can only be a copy of the mobile phone applet, which is comparable to “chicken ribs”, and it is a pity that it is tasteless to discard. Zebra is on the right path, and hopes that the joint service provider will make more deeply embedded mini-program functions.

In addition to the regular function of making and receiving calls, Roewe RX5 PLUS in the communications field provides car letter service , which is a function that has already appeared in MARS 3.0 version for benchmarking car WeChat, which has been optimized on VENUS.

Car News supports us to send location information to the car using the mobile app or WeChat applet. The driver can directly click on the location information to set the location information as the navigation destination after receiving the message pop-up window.

However, the picture quality of the reversing image is relatively ordinary. Although the rear scene can be seen clearly, it is more difficult to distinguish the license plate number at a distance of 2 meters.

Service ecology

In addition, the account opening (Alipay account) also brings considerable convenience. For example, no matter what channel we use (mobile app, mobile applet, car machine, etc.) to book the movie ticket, when we are away from the movie opening When you get in the car and start it some time ago, the system will pop up a window to ask you whether you want to go to the predetermined movie theater and directly set up the navigation .

After watching the movie, the return trip will actively push the movie playlist to the car owner. These designs may not have as many opportunities as music, but once you use it, you can feel the charm of technology.

One shortcoming is that there is no one-button rescue button in the car. As Internet cars, more and more models have indeed removed this “least commonly used” button, but we still hope to keep it.

Communication Favorability

Recently, we saw that the mobile phone Gaode map has also launched a similar function, which is also a product of Alibaba, which is believed to use a similar technical basis.

Zebra is the fastest in-vehicle system that we have tested. Although there are many models of cooperation, almost every major version is first installed in the Roewe RX5 car series, which also makes the RX5 long-term in a “crab-eating” position. Students who are concerned about the Internet of Vehicles should know that not only Zebra VENUS, Tencent Auto Union, Baidu Apollo have introduced small programs in this generation, and strive to expand the coverage of online services, but Zebra VENUS is the best, and it has really opened up The internal connection between functions makes the service a chain and not a simple function replica. This is the right direction.

The homepage setting of the A/B world has once again revolutionized the trend of map homepage led by itself. I wonder if the “latecomers” will continue to follow up. Voice control is the most important advancement in my opinion. Today, when voice control technology is becoming more and more homogeneous, it is extremely difficult to truly take a small step toward human-like interaction. Zebra and Roewe RX5 PLUS have done it. In summary, the Roewe RX5 PLUS achieved this result in the Autohome Smart Cars Test, which is well deserved. (Photo/Zheng Xu from the home of the car)
