Advanced Audio and Acoustic Processing for Automotive Applications - "My car is making a funny noise…."
Today's vehicles are becoming more and more quiet, which in return has made the customer highly sensitive to acoustical comfort! Thus, the "my car is making a funny noise..." scenario is a major challenge for system architects and designers. On one hand, it needs to be ensured that no disturbing noise is heard and on the other hand, the perceived sound quality needs to fulfill the listener's expectations with respect to the sound design. Through this webcast we will explore new automotive applications for acoustic processing and the signal processing technologies that enable them.
