AES 2019 International Conference on Automotive Audio on Sept 11 – 13, 2019

The role of audio in the automotive industry has changed significantly. The rapidly growing importance of electronics, software, connectivity and autonomous driving poses major challenges to the audio departments of automotive manufacturers and suppliers. In addition, new fields of development have emerged, sound systems are not only part of the infotainment system, they are also used to shape the sound of cars, i.e. the sound of the car itself due to its movement and thus sound generation.


The AES 2019 AA will provide an overview of the progress made since the last conference two years ago and will gather the leading global authorities in Automotive Audio for three days. Automotive manufacturers and suppliers will present new solutions for shaping the user experience (UX), show new technological insights, demonstrate possibilities on how to develop sound systems in the virtual reality, address new requirements in the emerging field of car sound design plus exhibitions and demos showcasing the latest automotive audio technologies.


Daily keynote presentations will highlight key areas of interest. The keynote from Ivo Muth, Vice President User Exerience/User Interface for Audi will feature the topic “The Holistic User Experience”,  “Audio Engineering in Today’s Automotive Industry: from Technical Performance to Sound Quality”, is the topic of the keynote, presented by Laurent Gagliadrini, DQI/DAPF/NVH (PSA Peugeot Citroën), and the keynote, given by Dr.-Ing. Bernhard Grill, Director with focus on Audio and Media Technologies (Fraunhofer IIS), will expound on “Immersive Audio Listening Experience in Cars – the Future of Music.” The Conference is chaired by Dr. Alfred Svobodnik.


We look forward to connecting with you at the 2019 AES International Conference on Automotive Audio and discussing our approach for acoustical virtual product development. Mvoid is represented with a exhibition booth.
