Fraunhofer IDMT’s audio software enables an individual listening experience

Everyone hears differently – this applies inside a vehicle too. That is why Fraunhofer IDMT in Oldenburg has developed a technological concept for fast and individual sound adaptation, which has been integrated into the multimedia system of vehicles from the Mercedes-Benz Group AG. At the heart of the development is an algorithm that easily adjusts the sound of music according to passengers’ wishes. Once set, the sound is optimally adapted to listening preferences.

Seeing speech

New algorithms from Fraunhofer IDMT form the basis for the »Dialogue Detection« in Steinberg Media Technologies’ latest version of its audio post-production software Nuendo. The function reliably recognises speech components in the audio track and in so doing enables audio professionals to easily separate passages with and without speech into different tracks. Fraunhofer IDMT supplied algorithms for measuring, evaluating and displaying speech intelligibility for the previous version of Nuendo too.

Under pressure…

The acoustic sensor systems of the Fraunhofer Institute for Digital Media Technology IDMT are used in industrial error and condition monitoring as well as automated quality control. In the »KI-MUSIK4.0« project, experts are further developing their technologies for use in highly integrated multi-sensor systems. One such application is the detection of pneumatic actuator leakage. At Hannover Messe 2022, the institute’s Oldenburg branch will provide practical insights into the results so far as well as its portfolio of products and services for industry.

When speaking is difficult

The consequences of a stroke can be manifold. If a patient is affected afterwards by a speech disorder, this might be aphasia – a neuropsychological aftereffect of the stroke. Targeted logopaedic treatment can help. This is the focus, among others, of »HiSSS«, a project that has just started, which includes hybrid and interactive speech and language therapy. Under the leadership of SpeechCare GmbH, Fraunhofer IDMT is developing new approaches in collaboration with HAWK University of Applied Sciences and Arts and Bitnamic GmbH.
