Wwise Automotive for augmented safety
New requirements for automotive safety drive the adoption of multiple sensor systems (e.g. radar, camera, etc.) which feed the car with tremendous amounts of contextual information regarding the car’s environment or the driver’s condition. The dynamic nature of this information requires the use of innovative interactive audio technology. Wwise Automotive utilizes such contextual information and provides various approaches to using sound for safety and guidance applications like ADAS (e.g. various collision warning systems) and AVAS (external pedestrian warning systems). Wwise Automotive can be easily adapted to provide customized user experiences, while empowering vehicle manufacturers to maintain a unique sound signature.
Wwise Automotive for enhanced comfort
Increased levels of automation and emerging use cases such as shared mobility present new opportunities towards a more adaptive in-car entertainment experience. The development of these advanced audio systems requires new workflows and tools that can support effective tuning customizations based on complex sets of real-time parameters provided by the vehicle network integration (e.g. CAN). Wwise Automotive provides context-aware tunings for applications such as HMI feedback chimes, vehicle noise compensation and automatic level adjustments, as well as advanced audio management capabilities to drastically enhance the audio listening experience.
