Car manufacturers are constantly facing new challenges: nowadays when people buy a car, they expect all aspects of the driving experience to be pleasant and safe. Hearing naturally also contributes to that. Your childhood memories must include the sound of the family car. And when you learned to drive, didn't that vibrating, magical noise lift your spirits? Sound is a fundamental indicator, it aids the driver's perception to have total control over the car and makes passengers feel comfortable.
For this reason, during the development process, also engineers and designers have to work in an acoustic environment that exactly replicates the real one. Our simulators meet this requirement by perfectly reproducing the sound information from engine, road and environmental conditions surrounding the vehicle. One significant challenge these days is that many engine types, such as electric are revolutionizing the classic contest between a powerful or quieter engine.
VI-grade identifies and records acoustic sources, simulates the acoustic interior environment, synchronizes recorded sounds with a Driver-in-the-Loop system to generate a Real-Time acoustic model for the driving simulator.
This provides acoustic engineers with the possibility to tune different sound sources in real working conditions.
VI-grade driving simulators enable designers and engineers to experience the sound of the vehicle they are developing without having to build a prototype. This is very important for making cars that meet market demands and cut the next finish lines. Sports car pilots, car manufacturers, component manufacturers, can all benefit from using this solution on VI-grade simulators.
