Speakers

  • Andreas Ehret
    Andreas Ehret
    Dolby, Director Automotive

    Andreas Ehret has been active as a technology leader in the audio industry for over two decades. He joined Dolby back in 2007 and since then served the company in various engineering and technology VP leadership roles, managing the teams that created solutions
    scaling into billions of consumer devices.
    Over the past couple of years his focus had been on the
    market introduction of Dolby’s next generation audio codec AC-4, as well as contributions to bring the Atmos music experience to life. These days Andreas’ focus is on developing and expanding Dolby’s Automotive business – whereas lighting up Dolby Atmos in cars is a key strategic ingredient thereof.

    Andreas is a strong believer in concepts such as use-case driven exploration, lean principles, rapid prototyping, collaboration with the industry, maintaining artistic intent, and validating consumer value.

  • Andrew Jones
    Andrew Jones
    ELAC, Vice President Engineering

    Andrew Jones – His near lifelong passion for audio began in his early teens and quickly became focused on loudspeakers.
    This led him to study Physics with a special interest in acoustics for his undergrad, followed by six years of postgraduate research
    in the fields of crossover design and active noise
    cancellation.
    Subsequently he joined KEF, initially in the research
    department looking into such things as measurement
    techniques and improved prediction of performance from impedance measurements (with the help of Dr. Small). He subsequently became Chief Engineer and worked extensively with concentric driver technology. After 11 years he moved to the USA, at the invitation of Floyd Toole, to work for Infinity. Almost 4 years later he joined Pioneer and TAD where he remained for 17 years. For the last 4 years he has been the VP of Engineering at ELAC.

AES 2022 International Automotive Audio Conference

Over the last 20 years, Automotive Audio has changed dramatically from being standard mono sound in one full range loudspeaker to a true multichannel playback system fully integrated and adjusted to the specific car. Today some of the most advanced sound technologies are being developed and applied in Automotive Audio. Recently the role of audio in the automotive industry has significantly changed. Sound systems are used to design the sound of cars, i.e. the sound of the car itself due to its motion and thus generation of sound (usually called noise). The impact of streaming, ride-share, autonomy, Battery Electric Vehicle’s (BEV’s), ownership models and car share could have a profound effect on the way we think about sound in and around vehicles and microphone challenges and use cases.

The conference will give an overview of the present state-of-the-art in some specific topics, and addresses many of the new scientific disciplines involved in this still-emerging field. Automotive Audio involves combinations of otherwise complementary scientific fields such as power electronics, bus systems, loudspeaker drive units, signal processing (DSP), acoustics & vibrations (NVH) and more.
