Whether on our way to work, on vacation, dropping the kids off at school or taking a drive out in the countryside, today’s in-vehicle information and entertainment options go way beyond the simple AM/FM radios and CD players of yesteryear. With the full-blown built-in audio/visual systems available today, drivers and passengers alike can connect their smartphones, USB and music players into designated ports, to stream audio content and watch movies on integrated LCD screens. And beyond the world of infotainment, motorists use hands-free telecommunications devices to make calls on the go, while intelligent navigational systems, rear-view cameras and warning mechanisms controlled by automatic speech recognition are becoming more and more popular every day.
And the common element shared by all these in-vehicle technologies? Sound.
When it comes to the design and usability of these systems, audio input processing is no less crucial than audio playback devices. Waves provides cutting-edge DSP technologies that take into account the acoustical properties of the vehicle, as well as external ambient noise from engine hum, wind and traffic, to enhance and improve the performance of in-car infotainment systems and the driving experience.
