SILENCE IS GOLDEN: ALTHOUGH INVISIBLE, ACTIVE NOISE CANCELLATION PLAYS AN IMPORTANT ROLE IN PASSENGER COMFORT.


Audi has announced that they will be using their latest innovation of Active Noise Cancellation technology to increase driving comfort for passengers.

 

It’s often defined by being smooth, gentle movements and luxurious interiors, however, Audi has set themselves apart by adding sound as a key player in driving comfort. By integrating revolutionary technology that targets counteracting sounds signals, Audi has been able to mask bothersome ambient noises within their Audi A8 model.

 

Audi explained how this technology exactly works by stating, “the soundwave of an undesirable noise takes the form of a mountain; the ANC system generates the exactly opposing valley, and the two waves cancel each other out. All the relevant information flows into the sound system’s amplifier.”

 

“So, for example, the engine control unit provides the current engine speed data. Four microphones in the car’s headliner compare the information with the interior noise before five woofers generate a counteracting sound in fractions of a second.”

 

This revolutionary noise canceling technology is available in various plug-in hybrid models and other engine variants. Audi is excited to be setting new benchmarks in comfort, despite the technology working invisibly behind the scenes.
