Socionext’s 3-D acoustic surround technology delivers state-of-the-art UI (User Interface) to aid in driver safety with sound localization control for in-vehicle applications such as driver's assistance and infotainment system to help vehicle operators receive intuitive directions and alert for unexpected occurrences.
- “Close-to-Ear effect” generated by the software helps drivers feel as if there are speakers just around ears.
- Off-line processing using “3D Authoring Tool” without the need for dedicated speaker or DSP. It can be cost-effectively implemented into a wide range of vehicles regardless of model or make.
- Robust sound localization technology is available to control any form of in-vehicle speaker configurations or conditions such as asymmetric speaker layout or acoustic reflections.
Sound Alert HMI for IVI System
