Suppliers, manufacturers and software providers are working on whole new sound dimensions for cars. They’re driven by changing user behavior on the one hand, and changing hardware topography on the other; increasingly, loudspeakers as we’ve known them for so many years now compete with interior components and body parts which generate the sound themselves with targeted vibrations. You’ll find a close look in this week’s in-depth article.
Also this week, we bring you coverage of Cadillac’s Lyriq, their first EV—a spatial marvel and harbinger of GM’s AVs; LG Electronics and Sound Hound working on an advanced AI voice technology for future infotainment systems; new BMWs to be made from up to 50 per cent recycled material; driver monitoring systems bringing new business opportunities; new car interior safety features; ZF presenting their technologies for steer- and brake-by-wire and electronically controlled active damping; China fixing to surpass Germany this year to become the world’s second-largest auto exporter after Japan, and electrification and connectivity creating great potential for modernizing automotive architecture and the driver’s experience in the cockpit.
