Audio and Acoustics: A Key Feature In The Cars Of Tomorrow
ALTI’s inaugural conference in Europe promises to be a major event. ALTI Automotive Audio Conference will be co-locating at the MOC in Munich with the High End Audio Show and the International Parts Supply Show (IPS).
The interior of the vehicle is becoming increasingly important. It is very likely that the vehicle interior will be used in a completely different way in the vehicle of tomorrow. People will use the vehicle to enjoy entertainment, play games, watch movies with family and friends via streaming, make video calls, use the vehicle as a mobile office, communicate with their community on social media. The challenge for OEMs and suppliers is to enable access to rich media content in the vehicle in a safe, user-friendly and secure way, and to achieve flawless image reproduction via displays as well as excellent sound quality. The demands for an excellent sound system will increase and with it the desire for new technologies, such as sound zones and immersive audio. The conference will provide an overview of the advances made in recent years and address many of the new demands in this emerging area of audio technology.
In the context of vehicle electrification, the challenges of NVH are growing. New measurements and approaches are needed. The same or even higher NVH performance levels will need to be achieved with lightweight structures, downsized respectively turbocharged engines, or alternative powertrains. You will hear about industry approaches and opportunities for OEMs to differentiate their acoustic attributes with branding purposes.
Greater digitalization of product and manufacturing development will enable technology growth. The conference will therefore also address virtual product development.
The new ALTI Automotive Audio Conference will provide a forum for professional exchange as well as discussion and presentation of new technologies and processes within the dynamic Automotive Audio industry. The conference language will be English.
