Create your sound in the LiveAMP software, then experience this in the context of all other vehicle sounds and with the dynamic driving conditions of a vehicle. NVH virtual prototypes and NVH simulator models provide an immersive, ultra-realistic acoustic experience on the desktop, in which ASD sounds can be properly experienced, developed, and fine-tuned in real-time.
The QNX LiveAMP software runs in parallel with the NVH Simulator software. Driving inputs and vehicle performance parameters from the NVH Simulator are fed to the LiveAMP software, and the ASD sound is generated and then played back through the NVH Simulator together with the rest of the vehicle sound. Different ASD sounds and concepts can be compared back to back, easily switching between multiple designs with a single click in the NVH Simulator. Sounds can be further filtered, adjusted and modified in the NVH Simulator. For example, to evaluate the impact of the AVAS speaker on interior sound quality, the AVAS speaker ASD sound can be combined with the transfer function from the speaker location near the front of the vehicle to the driver or passenger ear.
