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. Naturally, hearing also contributes to that. Sound is a fundamental indicator, it helps drivers to achieve total control over their car and makes passengers feel comfortable.
For this reason, during the development process, engineers and designers have to replicate acoustic conditions that exactly mimic the real ones. Driving simulators by VI-grade 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 different propulsion systems, such as electric motors, are revolutionizing the classic contest between a powerful or quieter engine.
DESIGNING THE PERFECT SOUND
VI-grade identifies and records acoustic sources, simulates the acoustic interior environment, synchronizes recorded sounds with other simulator cues 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 and allows vehicle dynamics engineers to sense a realistic sound experience.
VI-grade SOUNDS GOOD
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. Sports car drivers, car manufacturers and suppliers can all benefit from using this solution on VI-grade simulators.
