NOISE-CANCELLING OF A DIF­FER­ENT KIND

Torque (Singapore) - - NEWS -

Par­ents dis­turbed by their chil­dren’s back­seat bick­er­ing would be fool­ish to over­look Quar­relKan­cel, Skoda’s in­no­va­tive noise-cancelling head­rest sys­tem launched on April Fools’ Day as an ex­clu­sive op­tion for the Karoq SUV.

The Czech tech so­lu­tion to the prob­lem of sibling squab­bles dur­ing a car ride was con­ceived by Skoda’s Pro­fes­sor Si Lence and his col­league, Dr April Furst.

Quar­relKan­cel uses spe­cial speak­ers built into the front head­rests, which mon­i­tor and re­spond to the in-cabin child deci­bel level. When ac­ti­vated by the har­ried daddy via the in­fo­tain­ment screen’s “Shhh!” but­ton, the tech­nol­ogy gen­er­ates unique sound waves which block out the bick­er­ing and al­low the par­ents seated in front to con­tinue the road jour­ney in rel­a­tive peace. Quar­relKan­cel also has an au­to­matic mode, which lis­tens for the first signs of a ju­ve­nile ar­gu­ment and promptly can­cels out the fra­cas.
