Up to now, the "strongest" version, BYD Han DiPilot intelligent driver assistance system experience

In the new energy era, if we want to say which China brand is the best seller, it must be BYD. Since the comprehensive transformation of new energy sources, BYD has rapidly occupied the domestic new energy vehicle market with its mature three-electricity technology and excellent DM-i system, even compared with Tesla, the leader of the new force in building cars.

Along with the development of new energy vehicles, there are gradually popularized intelligent driving assistance systems, especially the emerging new forces for building cars, with Tesla AutoPilot and Xpeng Motors XPilot all having strong practicability. Then, as the leader of new energy vehicles, what is BYD’s strength in the intelligent driver assistance system? Today, I will take you on the road to experience it.

The test drive model is the 2022 BYD Han DM-i 242KM flagship model (the guide price is 289,800 yuan), equipped with BYD’s latest DiPilot intelligent driving assistance system. Byd Han itself has been evolving intellectually, from 3R1V to 5R1V, it has the ability of HWA high-speed driving assistance for the first time, and it is also continuously improving the intelligent experience through OTA upgrade. On the second anniversary OTA in August this year, the functions of HWA high-speed driving assistance, dTCS distributed traction control system, DiTrainer coaching mode and so on were introduced.

Today, BYD Han has 5 cameras, 12 ultrasonic radars and 5 millimeter-wave radars on the basic hardware, which supports ACC adaptive cruise, lane keeping, lane departure warning, lane change assistance, active braking, anti-collision warning and other functions, reaching L2+ level driving assistance capability, making it the "strongest" driving assistance system of BYD so far.

The urban scene should be the most common and the most complicated road scene. In the case of normal straight driving, Han DM-i can identify the lane lines stably and accurately, even if the lane lines are blurred. If the vehicle enters the one-sided lane line from the two-sided lane line, it can also create a virtual lane line (solid line) to ensure stable driving in the center.

Turn on the LCC lane keeping function when following the car, and the driving condition of Han DM-i is relatively stable, and the frequency of correction is relatively low. It can also follow the two-wheeled motorcycle, but it is not accurate enough to identify the types of surrounding vehicles. In most cases, the two-wheeled motorcycle will be identified as a car, but it will not make you feel dangerous because of its good following ability.

When passing the traffic light intersection, Han DM-i can automatically start with the preceding car, and there will be a voice prompt: "The preceding car has started, please pay attention to the surrounding environment", which is more humanized and will not scare you suddenly. However, it is worth noting that if you wait for the traffic lights for too long, the vehicle will temporarily quit the LCC, and you need to take the initiative to step on the accelerator pedal to start. After re-entering the lane, the LCC function will be restored.

Under the congested road conditions, the performance of Han DM-i can be called an "old driver". Not only does it follow the car naturally, but the braking process of the vehicle is also very smooth. The following distance supports 4-level adjustment, and the shortest following distance is only 2.5 meters. It is not easy to be jammed by other vehicles under the condition of ensuring safety. It is definitely a great weapon to liberate your feet in traffic jams.

It is worth mentioning that the DiPilot intelligent driving assistance system of Han DM-i is stable in both day and night, and the identification of road lane lines and surrounding vehicles is relatively in place, and there is little difference between actual use and daytime.
