Infiniti Prototype 10 Concept

HONG KONG (Aug. 16, 2018) – At the 2018 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, INFINITI will unveil its striking Prototype 10 concept car, a daring electrified speedster that provides a window into the brand’s desire to deliver driving pleasure and thrilling performance from electrified powertrains.
In creating the single-seat Prototype 10, INFINITI has re-imagined the classic speedster with a cool, clean and forward-looking design.

[HMG TV] Hyundai·KIA Future Technology - SSZ, Separated Sound Zone

Hyundai Motor Company Showcases Next-Generation Separated Sound Zone Technology SEOUL, August 13, 2018 - Hyundai Motor Company revealed for the first time, its next-generation Separated Sound Zone (SSZ) technology that allows each passenger of a vehicle to experience an audio stream tailored to their individual needs, including music, hands-free phone calls, and vehicle alerts, whilst maintaining a headphone-free social space where passengers can converse freely.
SSZ technology creates and controls the acoustic fields of the car, allowing the driver and each passenger to hear isolated sounds. The many speakers installed in the vehicle feature technology that uses scientific principles to reduce or increase audio levels of sound waves. This negates the overlap of sounds being heard in each seat, creating the same effect as current noise cancellation systems, but without the need for headphones.
"Customers in the autonomous navigation era will demand increasingly customizable ente…
