With the advancement of digital signal technology, active noise control technique has gradually received more attention for the low-frequency noise in the vehicle. The active noise control apparatus and method have shortcomings in the theory and algorithm. Both acoustic devices researched on meeting the application requirements and adaptive active noise control algorithms are effective ways to improve the practicability of active noise control technique. The paper reviews various vehicle interior active noise control apparatuses in recent years. It has been found that the vehicle interior active noise control apparatuses can be classified as the extracting signal sources and the control strategy between cancelling signal and feedback signal. From review of the patents presented, it is found that there are many patents covering the active noise control method inside vehicle. However, there is a limitation in controlling speed and precision. Therefore, it is recommended that the development should be focused on the design of the control section of vehicle interior noise, which will improve the sound quality and save the space. Moreover, the cost of the new apparatus will be reduced by introducing intelligent controller.

Keywords: Acoustic devices, active noise control strategy, algorithm, cancelling signal, feedback signal, vehicle interior noise.
