New device cancels noise
Noise is a stressor. It affects our circulation largely unconsciously via the autonomic nervous system. The demand for insulation materials is increasing. In this context, the EU-funded recalm ANC headrest project proposes a health promoting acoustic device that is integrated into seats. The device cancels noise by emitting an anti-sound signal. It also allows an active noise compensation (ANC) in the ‘far field’ without headphones. According to the project, cars and commercial vehicles, as well as public transport and aeroplanes, can be equipped with this device. The focus of the first phase of the project is to target the construction and agricultural machinery market in Germany.
