What constitutes good sound? How can speech intelligibility in a vehicle be evaluated and improved? Fraunhofer IDMT in Oldenburg offers car manufacturers and suppliers improved speech intelligibility and sound comfort, taking individual preferences and needs into consideration. Depending on the application, individual and better hearing is defined on the basis of various sound parameters.
In the car, background noise often drowns out speech from the navigation system, telephone or radio. Our software solutions are able to automatically measure and display intelligibility and optimise it in real time.
For music or audio books, users can adjust individually perceived sound quality with the help of the »YourSound« feature and thus improve comfort without taking unnecessary safety risks. This is because the user interface is intuitive and easy to operate; the Fraunhofer algorithms automatically adapt to the situation and improve the listening experience.
