Want Safer Cars? Lend Them Ears

A startup known as OtoSense is collaborating with leading auto manufacturers on software that might provide cars with a sense of "hearing" that could troubleshoot problems before they morph into overly expensive fixes.

The software could also prove useful to drivers, picking up on nearby emergency-vehicle sirens as well as sounds that indicate changes in the quality of road surfaces.

So far, the machine-learning software can already ID certain noises that correspond to changes in an automobile's engine and brakes.

OtoSense is also developing a project called AutoHound -- a tablet app that provides auto techs and car owners alike with the capability of recording certain sounds for eventual playback and, it is hoped, successful diagnosis of the trouble behind them.
