Sound and vibration are intrinsic parts of the driving experience. Consciously or not, people make decisions and form opinions based on the sound and vibration they perceive from the vehicle. Buying decision, perception of quality, reliability and proper function, and emotional response (whether positive or negative) are all considerably influenced by the sound and vibration of the vehicle. NVH (noise, vibration, harshness) embraces a number of factors essential to delivering the overall driving experience and communicating brand DNA.
An enormous amount of technology is applied in the vehicle design and development process to engineer the NVH characteristics of the vehicle. Whether from CAE models or from measured data, most of this data is in the form of numbers, plots and graphs. Communicating this information and making decisions with confidence is difficult, because as humans, we perceive and understand sound and vibration as sound and vibration, not as plots and graphs. NVH virtual prototypes and NVH simulators bridge the gap between CAE and Test and between analytical and human perception and understanding. Set NVH targets with confidence, assess design changes rapidly, know that the NVH content and design is correct before building the first physical prototype using NVH virtual prototypes in the NVH Simulator.
The Brüel & Kjær NVH Simulator technology is the latest addition to the VI-grade suite of simulator and simulation tools. VI-grade solutions bridge the gap between test and simulation to accelerate product development for Vehicle Dynamics, Ride and Handling, ADAS and AV, HMI, Motorsports and now NVH.
Join us for our free webinar and discover how NVH virtual prototypes and NVH simulators can help you set and attain NVH design goals and vastly increase NVH development efficiency. Several topics will be covered:
Experience NVH data of measured vehicles, CAE data, or any combination of these
Set targets and get agreement through experiencing the NVH targets
Use Virtual NVH Prototypes for design validation and sign-off
Communicate NVH data, design options and trade-offs to non-NVH experts easily
Design the “right” sound of the vehicle
Integrate other software and hardware (vehicle performance, sound enhancement or other systems influencing NVH) into the NVH simulator experience
Combine accurate sound and vibration experience with driving simulators for Vehicle Dynamics, Ride and Comfort, ADAS and AV, HMI, Motorsports and other applications
