  • Patent number: 12035117
    Abstract: One embodiment of the present invention sets forth a technique for generating audio for a speaker system. The technique includes receiving an audio input signal, a first location associated with the audio input signal, a first geometric model of the speaker system, and a second geometric model of one or more surfaces in proximity to the speaker system. The technique also includes generating a plurality of output signals for a plurality of speaker drivers in the speaker system based on the audio input signal, the first location, and the first and second geometric models. The technique further includes transmitting the plurality of output signals to the plurality of speaker drivers, wherein the plurality of speaker drivers emit audio that corresponds to the plurality of output signals, the emitted audio rendering a sound corresponding to the audio input signal at the first location.

  • Publication number: 20240214733
    Abstract: A system and method for generating low latency sound zones in a listening space utilizing only headrest speaker(s) within a predetermined distance of each sound zone. The audio signals are processed by a processing module connected to the headrest loudspeakers to generate audio for the headrest loudspeakers that is greater than or equal to 300 Hz, reducing the processing load and limiting latency to 5 msec.

  • Publication number: 20240203392
    Abstract: An active noise cancellation (ANC) system is provided with at least one loudspeaker to project anti-noise sound within a passenger cabin of a vehicle in response to receiving an anti-noise signal and at least one microphone to provide an error signal indicative of noise and the anti-noise sound within the passenger cabin. An adaptive filter controller is programmed to filter the error signal to obtain a noise reduction ratio, and to adjust a step size and/or leakage parameter based on a comparison of the noise reduction ratio to a noise threshold. A controllable filter generates the anti-noise signal based on the adjusted step size and/or leakage parameter.

  • Publication number: 20240175968
    Abstract: A method includes determining a plurality of target device distances between a plurality of vehicle sensor nodes of a vehicle and the target device, identifying a reference target device distance from among the plurality of target device distances based on a magnitude of the plurality of target device distances, and determining a threshold comparison distance based on the reference target device distance, a reference intranode distance, and a predetermined error distance. The method includes assigning the plurality of vehicle sensor nodes to one of a reflecting vehicle sensor node set and a non-reflecting vehicle sensor node set based on a comparison between the threshold comparison distance and the plurality of target device distances and determining a positional characteristic of the target device based on one or more target device distances associated with one or more vehicle sensor nodes from among the non-reflecting vehicle sensor node set.
