In a release, the company noted that digital radio on the move is a challenge. Services go out of range, local stations change and tunnels interrupt reception. With AUTODAB 2.0, Frontier has drawn on a wealth of experience gained in developing class-leading products for the consumer market to provide a low-cost solution for this difficult environment.
Existing automotive DAB/DAB+ solutions employ dual tuners to simultaneously search for alternative signal sources while listening to a station. If the current station signal is lost the radio can switch to an alternative, presenting a seamless experience to the user. Developed from Frontier's AUTODAB 1.0 our latest technology (patent pending) performs the same task using only a single DAB tuner, significantly reducing cost and complexity.
Features and benefits of AUTODAB 2.0:
-AUTODAB 2.0 - constantly updates available services as a background task without the need for dual tuners
-Service following - automatically maintains a selected station across different DAB regions or after interruption to reception.
-Intelligent pre-sets - maintains your favourite stations across DAB regions
-Seek - allows fast selection of new stations with minimum driver distraction
-DL Plus - supports enhanced text services
-Data out - provides embedded DAB service data such as EPG and TPEG
-Audio concealment - masks audio break-up in poor reception areas
-Purpose built test and development tools - reduces risk and time to market
"AUTODAB 2.0 represents a significant opportunity for our partners to lower the cost of entry for digital radio in cars, whilst significantly improving performance & user satisfaction" said
