  • Patent number: 10878792
    Abstract: A vehicle is provided and includes a first tire, a second tire, and a detector that is configured to detect an air pressure of the first tire. A vibration generator is configured to generate vibration in the second tire. A controller is configured to operate the vibration generator to cause the second tire vibrate when the air pressure of the first tire satisfies a predetermined normal condition.

  • Patent number: 10733973
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to a vehicle and a method for controlling thereof, and more particularly to a technique for removing noise generated in a vehicle air conditioner. The vehicle may include an air conditioner, comprising: a speaker configured to output sound; a blower fan configured to blow air that is heat-exchanged in the air conditioner; an air vent configured to regulate a discharge amount of the air discharged into the vehicle; and a controller configured to sense a noise acoustic signal of the blower fan that is determined corresponding to an opening degree of the air vent, and to control the speaker to to output by generating an acoustic signal having an opposite phase to the sensed noise acoustic signal.

  • Patent number: 10728670
    Abstract: A vehicle includes a power source, a first glass, a second glass provided on one side of the first glass, a first coil provided on the first glass, and a second coil provided on the second glass. A controller configured to determine a direction in which sound is to be output, to control the power source so that an AC current is applied to the first coil and a DC current is applied to the second coil when it is determined that the sound is to output to an inside direction of the vehicle, and to control the power source so that an AC current is applied to the second coil and a DC current is applied to the first coil when it is determined that the sound is to be output to an outside direction of the vehicle.
