Recent/Planned Activities

Planned Activity:

AES 148th Vienna May 25-28, 2020

http://www.aes.org/events/148/

Automotive Workshop: It's all about the Bass

Recent Activity:

AES 2019 International Conference on Automotive Audio in Neuburg an der Donau, near Munich, Germany, Sept 11- 13, 2019.

Automotive Audio Trends

1. Increasing signal processing requirements for diverse audio features is driving increased computational demand

2. Higher on-board bandwidth requirements require new data transfer technologies (Ethernet, AVB)

3. Changes in amplifier/DSP hardware architecture due to increased software demand (e.g. multi-CPU)

4. Microphone arrays

5. Immersive/3D audio

6. Motorcycle/off-road premium/branded audio

7. Class-D amplifiers and head-units

8. High-efficiency systems

9. Power/performance classification for engineering and marketing (see also AES2 2012 release)

10. Sound zones

11. ANC/Sound design
