Tired Of Hearing The Same Old In-Car Alert Sounds? Nissan & Game Developer To Create New Sounds

Nissan is all set to change the way alerts and notifications sound in a car. If you are tired of listening to the same old alert sounds inside a car, this is good news. Nissan has partnered with gaming giant Bandai Namco to develop new sounds for in-car alerts and notifications. These new sounds are set to change the in-car experience for future Nissan models.

The car as we know it today has come a long way from its humble origins. A lot of things have changed. The change has become more drastic in the last couple of decades. Cars are becoming more and more reliant on digital technology. Several systems in the car now remind the driver and passengers to do some things through alert sounds.

For example, as per the new safety norms implemented in 2019, all cars on sale in India are mandated to have seat-belt reminders. If the car crosses a speed of over 10km/h, an alarm goes off inside the car to remind the driver and front passenger to wear their seatbelts.

As a part of these safety norms, all cars in India are now mandated to have speeding alerts. Cars give out a single beep every two minutes if the car crosses the speed of 80km/h. Once the car is past 120km/h the car lets out a beep once in two seconds, which is constant and gets irritating, therefore causing the driver to slow down.

Cars also use audio alerts and warnings to alert the driver of the car in case one of the doors isn't closed properly, or if the key is left in the keyhole, etc. Some other more premium cars use audio alerts while the car is in cruise control mode.

In some countries, cars use these audio alerts to warn the driver of obstructions ahead, for speed limit changes, fuel-level alerts, etc. It is quite obvious that modern cars are quite reliant on audio alerts and warnings to function normally.

However, it is quite ironic that the one area where the cars haven't improved much is in the style of these audio warnings. One would expect them to be futuristic and modern by now. But that isn't the case. All cars across a wide range of segments all use the same ‘beep' sound and that can get annoying at times.

Nissan has decided to do something about this. The Japanese auto giant has announced a partnership with Bandai Namco to develop new alert tones. Bandai Namco has published several well-known games like Pacman, Tekken, Ace Combat, Gundam, etc.

Quite obviously then, Bandai Namco knows to develop some perfect sounds. In the future we can expect Nissan's cars to feature some fancy sounds for different functions and alerts. Nissan even tweeted a poll recently asking users to figure out what a sound was. It did sound like it was the Key alarm.

Thoughts On Nissan Developing New In-Car Alert Sounds In Partnership With Bandai Namco

The audio alerts we've been hearing in our cars have been the same for way too long. We are glad Nissan took this project up to improve the sounds in the car. We're sure Bandai Namco will bring in some brilliant sounds and we cannot wait to hear them.
