Recognising audio events and acoustic scenes inside the car enables vehicles to make intelligent safety adjustments when drivers are potentially distracted, such as increasing distance from the car in front, or improving the quality of audio playback in a noisy car environment.
Listening out to the world enables the car to help the driver by making intelligent adjustments, increasing transparency or providing notifications. Examples include detecting emergency vehicles and other important audible cues.
Sound recognition plays a key role alongside the array of other sensors.
