Siren detection, or: why cars need ears
Nee-naw. Pin-pon. Tatü-Tata — how many sirens can you recognize? If you were a fan of the emergency vehicle as a child then you will have no problem naming a few, but the variations across the World make it a trickier quiz! This episode of From KNOW-HOW to WOW is all about the sound of sirens - and how Bosch researchers Andreas Merz and Thomas Buck equip cars with ears, figuratively speaking, in order to recognize sirens on the road. You’ll learn why that’s both necessary and surprisingly difficult to accomplish. Another guest on the show: science journalist Andreas von Bubnoff of the Pandemic Silence Project. He demonstrates the impact of sounds on how we perceive our environment, and how lockdowns during the pandemic have changed the sound of the world. And now: listen up! Wee-woo-wee-woo.
