Pin-drop silence when you drive.
Bose has just announced that it is developing a new noise-cancellation system that’s made exclusively for vehicles. The aim is to reduce the noise inside your vehicle that could translate to a quieter drive.
SlashGear reports that this technology is called Bose QuietComfort Road Noise Control (RNC), and has already made its way to various vehicle manufacturers globally.
It was mentioned that road noise was a constant problem and complaint by most drivers. Various solutions have already been introduced to reduce noise, but most of them only make the vehicle heavier. It is known that integrating Bose’s noise-canceling technology can solve that issue.
Bose’s RNC will take into account various details such as software, external microphones, even accelerometers and even the car’s own sound system to help minimize the road noise when driving. This also means that it will constantly adjust noise cancellation on every road that you drive on.
We already know Bose as one of the key pioneers in noise-cancellation so putting that same technology into cars is something definitely interesting. The problem is, there are some drivers who actually enjoy that ‘noise’ so the success of this would depend on how everyone will adapt to it. Noise cancellation anyways would probably just be a function that you can always turn off if you don’t like it.
Bose said that RNC should be built into supported models in two years’ time.
