Nio Updates Its Pilot Semi-Autonomous Driving System To Level 2

Nio’s advanced driving assistant system (ADAS), officially named the Nio Pilot, has been updated with seven new features.

Among them we find the Auto Lane Changing, Traffic Jam Pilot and Highway Pilot, which have transformed the system into a Level 2 semi-autonomous driving technology with advanced safety items.

“As a smart electric vehicle brand, the research and development of autonomous driving technologies is absolutely vital to Nio”, said Jamie Carlson, the company’s VP of Autonomous Driving.

“It is only through progressive research and development and mastering core technologies, that we can more quickly respond to user feedback and quicken the pace of product iteration. In this way, we can offer users an experience that exceeds their expectations.”

Aside from enhancing the Nio Pilot, the automaker has also upgraded its OS 2.0 “smart” infotainment operating system, improving the design and user interaction, and providing a more pleasant digital experience thanks to more screen gesture operations that make it easier to operate it on the go.

Furthermore, the Chinese automaker’s smart operating system gets more third-party content, such as the Baidu Maps and QQ Music, in addition to the Nio Radio, the auto brand’s online audio community.

Founded in 2014 as a global EV maker, Nio employs more than 9,000 people worldwide and has design and manufacturing centers in the United States, China, Germany, UK and other locations. Their lineup includes the ES6 and ES8 SUVs, as well as the the impressive EP9 and newly unveiled ET Preview.
