VI-SimSound is a sound simulation and generation software which can be connected to any Driving Simulator to provide an immersive, accurate sound experience. The sound of wind, road, engine, motors, traffic, accessory noises, tyre squeal, and anything else perceived in the vehicle can be generated and played in real-time, synchronized perfectly with the visual scene and driving dynamics of the vehicle simulator.
VI-SimSound is based on the VI-grade NVH Simulator technology, which leverages decades of sound quality technology and expertise from Brüel & Kjær. Using the same sophisticated audio algorithms and methods to synthesize sound in real-time, instant, accurate sound is generated in real-time, completely synchronized with the driving simulator.
VI-SimSound works together with a high-quality audio sound card to provide high-quality, accurate sound. To ensure accurate sound reproduction through various playback systems, an automated tool to measure and correct for the characteristics of the playback system and acoustic environment is included. A compact user interface provides for monitoring of incoming vehicle parameters and cueing signals, as well as monitoring of output signal levels. With VI-SimSound, up to 8 independent audio channels are supported, enabling many possible sound system configurations.
VI-SimSound is integrated into VI-grade Driving Simulators as a standard sound-generation solution and can also be used with any driving simulator from any supplier.
