Bose is making its innovative noise-canceling car technology available to automakers. The innovation promises to be "a smarter, more flexible and adaptable electronic solution." As the vehicle is traveling on uneven roads, for example, the vibrations of the vehicle's body are measured and a signal is sent to the car's speakers which, in turn, minimize the unwanted noise within milliseconds. This feature does not only contribute to a more tranquil and pleasant driving experience, but it also allows for drivers to be vigilant about noises that do matter.
Bose's noise-canceling car technology is dubbed QuietComfort Road Noise Control or RNC, for short. The ride-enhancing feature is developed through references to the company's QuietComfort noise-canceling headphones.
