A Fine-tuned Approach: Automotive Software-Defined Audio

On-demand webcast:
Aired live: February 26, 2019 02:00 PM EST

Automakers understand that acoustics are important to their vehicle experience. Up until now, automakers have had to engineer that experience by assembling disparate hardware and software components and to spend considerable effort to integrate and fine tune those components into a consolidated system.

For the first time, the QNX Acoustics Management Platform 3.0 (QNX AMP 3.0) brings key audio and acoustics functionality found in modern vehicles into a single, integrated, high-performance software framework that runs entirely on application processors.

Join our acoustics experts, Len Layton, Business Development Manager – Acoustics, and Randy Martin, Senior Product Manager, as they present BlackBerry QNX’s unified software-defined vision for automotive acoustics and how QNX Acoustics Management Platform enables automakers to meet increasing consumer expectations while reducing cost, complexity and time-to-market.

In this webinar, learn how to:
  • Meet elevated consumer expectations related to speech recognition integrating virtual assistants such as Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, Apple Siri
  • Address the demanding latency requirements of smart-phone projection certifications.
  • Reduce development costs by deploying a single, software-based audio architecture from base audio configurations all the way to the highest-end multi-speaker premium audio systems;
  • Support multi-element MEMS microphone arrays across multiple zones within the cabin and support handsfree speech commands and spoken “wake-up” words;
  • Integrate advanced convenience and quality features such as In-Car Communication, Active Noise Control, and Sound Enhancement;
  • Deploy a globally-compliant acoustic vehicle alerting system (AVAS) solution for pedestrian alerts with sound profiles tailored to the OEM brand experience;
  • Ensure safety-critical alerts and warnings are audible to the driver under all operating conditions.
