AITO asks M7 to welcome 96 updates for the first OTA upgrade.

Recently, AITO’s M7 officially ushered in the first OTA upgrade. The upgrade content is aimed at seven major areas of vehicles, with 96 new function points, covering many scenes of users in actual car use. Among them, the four highlight functions of super desktop, downhill energy recovery intensity adaptation, ENC range extender active noise reduction and time wallpaper will be upgraded on the M7 first. This time, 27 controllers (ECU) and 77 car experience have been optimized, including car washing mode and time wallpaper.

At the same time, Yu Chengdong said on social media that the HarmonyOS smart cockpit allows AITO cars to constantly upgrade their systems like smart phones, so that everyone can drive "new" cars all the time. Among them, my favorite is the super desktop function, which allows a large number of applications on mobile phones to enter the car. Whether watching movies, listening to news or video chatting, M7 will give you a more extreme experience. This upgraded ENC range extender has the active noise reduction function, which makes the originally quiet interior space quieter and more comfortable to drive. Welcome to experience the frequently-used and ever-new HarmonyOS Smart Cockpit!

The traditional projection mapping scheme of mobile phone and car machine has very limited applications and cannot meet the diversified needs of consumers. After the OTA upgrade, AITO Media M7 added the super desktop function for the first time, which not only supported the mobile phone application of HarmonyOS to get on the bus seamlessly, but also realized the horizontal window layout display of the parallel horizon of the car-machine interface, so that the mobile phone ecology and the car-machine ecology could be integrated and shared. It also supported the hardware call between the mobile phone and the car-machine to realize more new experiences and new functions. Users can use the applications installed on the mobile phone through the screen of the car in the car, just like using the car to install locally. In the entertainment scene, when the mobile phone is playing QQ music, you can open QQ music through the super desktop after getting on the bus and continue to enjoy the playing experience. When you return to the desktop, you can play the previous/next song through voice control, and you can also control the previous/next song through the steering wheel buttons.

In the social scene, you can open the mobile phone instant messaging application when traveling by car, and realize the sharing of video calls in the car and scenery outside the car anytime and anywhere through video calls in the car. It also supports business people’s conference applications, and can use cockpit camera to conduct multi-person video or voice conference, so that the desktop content shared by the other party can be easily viewed through the car’s large screen, thus improving the conference efficiency. For ladies who love beauty, you can open the little red book with one click on the super desktop to learn the beauty course, and with the super queen mirror, fine makeup is now being learned. In the map scene, open the public comment from the super desktop, select the destination and jump to Baidu map through the address to directly start navigation, making travel more accurate and efficient.

The quietness of the vehicle directly affects the comfort and quality of the vehicle. The M7 vehicle has 156 technologies to control the wind noise of the vehicle body. The front windshield and side windows of the vehicle are all made of 4.76mm three-sided double-layer sound insulation glass, and the interior is acoustically encapsulated by sound insulation pads and sound-absorbing cotton.

Power system is another big source of vehicle noise and vibration. In order to further reduce the engine noise of the range extender, in this OTA upgrade, M7 has added the active noise reduction function of ENC range extender, which is different from the traditional noise reduction method of sound absorption and sound insulation materials. The reverse sound wave emitted by the speaker in the car and the cabin noise cancel each other out to reduce the noise felt by the drivers and passengers. At the same time, under the acoustic design of various control sources, the effect of precise control of ENC is realized. After the active noise reduction function is turned on, 94% noise can be removed, and the noise reduction amount reaches 12.3dB.

On the driving level, in order to further take care of users’ different driving environments in actual vehicles, this upgrade adds a downhill energy recovery intensity adaptive function. The M7 has three driving modes: energy-saving, comfort and sport. When the vehicle is driving on the Panshan section, most users will choose the comfort or sport mode with weaker kinetic energy recovery than the energy-saving mode for the sake of driving smoothness. However, due to the weak kinetic energy recovery in the comfort and sport modes, frequent braking is required when the vehicle is driving downhill on Panshan Road, which affects the overall driving experience.

The newly added downhill energy recovery adaptive function will automatically identify the "big downhill" road section in comfort and sports mode, and the vehicle will intelligently enhance the energy recovery intensity, so that the vehicle consumes less energy, and at the same time, it can effectively reduce the number of times the user steps on the brakes, thus reducing the driver’s operating fatigue and brake pad wear, and prolonging the service life of the brake system. In addition, it can also reduce the risk of vehicle out of control due to braking heat attenuation caused by frequent braking.

The M7 fully supports various modes such as reservation upgrade, APP remote control upgrade and automatic upgrade at night. Before the upgrade, it will automatically check the vehicle status, check the vehicle speed, whether to park, gear status (P gear) and battery power to ensure the vehicle’s use status, and restrain the change of gear and parking status during the upgrade process.

In the future, the AITO series will continue to collect users’ needs and be constantly updated. On the one hand, it will allow users to carry out safe and reliable OTA upgrades at will, on the other hand, it will continue to bring new vehicle functions, making the series more user-friendly and driving-friendly.
