About this event
There has always been a requirement for reducing weight and improving comfort in transport systems but, for both commercial and environmental reasons, these have become increasingly significant. Since its development in the 1980s Active Noise Control (ANC) has offered a route to achieving these two, conflicting, aspirations.
The massive increases in computing power and developments in the algorithms available which have taken place since then, are now bearing fruit and ANC is finally achieving the market penetration it has always aspired to.
This presentation will outline the background of ANC and its application to transport systems. It will provide an overview of the technology, the algorithms used, the benefits it can bring, and the limitations. Applications to planes, trains and automobiles will be discussed and how the latest developments are being incorporated into the move towards vehicles as entertainment spaces.
A link to the event, hosted via Zoom, will be sent out an hour prior to the event.
