What is "SOUND-X"?


The i-ROAD shines as the innovative prototyping of the OPEN ROAD PROJECT – a challenge boldly undertaken to apply combinations of unprecedented services in addressing the theme of "Instilling greater freedom in urban mobility." As the latest aspect of this quest, we have utilized actual i-ROAD road data to design "driving sounds." For the name of the concept, we have chosen "SOUND-X." How then, can actual driving experiences be transformed by tailoring sounds emitted on the road to fit specific scenes and occasions?
