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, A2B)

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

3a) Audio Algorithms are being integrated in hte Cockpit Domain Controllers (formerly "head units" or a combination of remote amp and HMI)

4. Microphone arrays

5. Immersive/3D audio

6. Motorcycle/off-road premium/branded audio

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

7a) Real Efficiency (dB/current) & perceived loudness

8. Sound zones

9. In-Car Communications (ICC)

10. ANC/Sound design/Acoustic Vehicle Alerting Systems (AVAS)
