Ford introduces interior noise cancelling to new Mondeo

12 November 2015

Using technology similar to that of noise cancelling headphones, Ford has introduced its Active Noise Control on the new Mondeo Vignale model.

Ford Noise Vibration & Harshness supervisor, Ralf Heinrichs has been working on reducing noise in the cabin of the new Modeo Vignale

Ford’s Active Noise Control uses three microphones, strategically placed in the cabin, to detect undesirable noises from the engine and transmission.

The system counteracts those noises with opposing sound waves from the audio system – without affecting volume levels of music and conversation.

Driver and vehicle behaviour is recorded and anticipated; for example, when a driver is accelerating in a lower gear.

Active Noise Control is part of a range of innovations for the flagship Ford Mondeo Vignale that enhance sound quality.

Another example is acoustic glass that can improve the sound-proofing qualities of the windscreen and front windows. Containing a layer of acoustic film thinner than a human hair, acoustic glass reduces the intrusion of wind noise caused by air flow around the window pillars.
