Faurecia has acquired a majority stake in Swedish company, Creo Dynamics, providing acoustics and Active Noise Control (ANC) solutions.
Creo Dynamics technologies are complementary to the audio competences of Faurecia Clarion Electronics, which include smart headrests, active surfaces, tuning algorithms and digital sound enabling an immersive sound experience and personalised sound bubble.
“Creo Dynamics’s technologies will contribute to position Faurecia Clarion Electronics, our newly created Business Group, as a full acoustic system provider delivering sound performance, personalised comfort and lower-weight,” said Faurecia EVP Group Strategy, Yann Brillat Savarin.
“Using both active and passive solutions, we will transform the user experience inside the cockpit by providing a truly immersive sound.”
Founded in 2010 and based in Linköping, Sweden, Creo Dynamics provides solutions in acoustics, fluid dynamics and smart structures to customers in various industries, primarily automotive and aerospace.
At CES Las Vegas earlier this year, Faurecia and Creo Dynamics demonstrated an individual noise control solution to enhance the comfort and privacy of the sound experience by creating a personalised sound bubble.
This was achieved by using Creo Dynamics’s virtual microphone technology combined with Active Noise Control algorithms in the headrest’s sound system.
