Modern cars are extremely advanced devices. In their technologies dedicated to driving, of course, but not only. The pleasure and experience of the driver and his passengers are also very important.
If you have been driving for a long time, you may now be completely numb, but our cars are doing a lot of noise. Some are quieter than others – not to mention electric vehicles, of course – but there is always noise, whether it's from the heating / air conditioning system, the engine, other surrounding vehicles, tires, etc. A permanent noise that can be tiring in the long run.
Jaguar Land Rover develops noise reduction system for cars
As said, if you're used to driving and / or spending time in the car, your brain has probably learned to dampen these sounds automatically. That being said, Jaguar Land Rover is convinced that this noise can add to driver stress. So much so that the brand has developed a noise reduction system capable of suppressing peaks of up to 10 dB and ambient noise levels between 3 and 4 dB.
The system in question works thanks to sensors placed on each wheel of the car. In particular, these make it possible to precisely follow the vibrations due to the road surface. With these vibrations, the system can calculate an out-of-phase sound signal to “suppress” these noises. A process exactly similar to that used in our headsets and other headphones.
For the well-being of its customers
According to Jaguar Land Rover Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Steve Iley, “Active road noise reduction technology has the potential not only to improve road safety but also the well-being and quality of the road. life of our customers. In a post-Covid-19 world, where a 'new normal' is emerging, we are preparing for our customers' expectations for private transportation to change. Particular attention will be placed on safe and clean mobility, where personal space, well-being and hygiene play a very important role. "
