For more than 10 years, Automotive Audio has been an important part of product development at Fraunhofer IIS. Our researchers, engineers and Tonmeisters dedicate their work to providing all vehicle occupants with the best possible sound. Today, in nearly every brand new car, you can enjoy our audio technologies, such as mp3 and AAC decoding, DAB / DAB + and DRM receiver solutions, as well as Symphoria and Sonamic algorithms for sound enhancement.
We are convinced that high-quality audio systems will be even more important in future cars than they are today. In an autonomous vehicle, you no longer have to concentrate on the road, instead you can enjoy your free time in the car: listen to your favorite music, watch an exciting movie or enjoy a computer game.

Fraunhofer Symphoria creates a new sense of dimensionality and spaciousness by increasing width, depth and even height of the sound image in a car. This results in a broad and clearly defined front stage as well as a perfectly balanced surround sound field for each seat.
