AVAS/NVH: Testing and Development for Optimum Vehicle Acoustics
Cars with excellent acoustics have been subjected to an intensive battery of tests. Vibrations that can be felt and heard in and around the car are investigated, unwanted noise is analyzed and suppressed and an internal and external acoustic design is developed. In our acoustic center, we can perform all the necessary acoustic tests for cars with combustion engines, hybrid drives and electric powertrains. These tests cover everything from material samples, subcomponents and individual assemblies through to complete vehicles.
Our specialist team provides the entire bandwidth of NVH (noise, vibration and harshness) test services, including areas such as acoustic comfort and aeroacoustics and the development and testing of Acoustic Vehicle Alerting Systems (AVAS) and e-sound. With the goal of achieving a vehicle that is completely free of unwanted noise, we become involved during the product development stage and use a combination of virtual simulations and physical testing methods to achieve the best possible solutions. Our standards-based, certified processes guarantee our customers the highest quality results.
NVH testing: rapid cause analysis and solution development
We have been carrying out NVH tests for over 20 years and these are now available at three sites: Munich, Ingolstadt and Sassenburg near Wolfsburg. Our team, which is made up of experts in acoustics, physics and psychoacoustics, has access to ultra-modern test facilities. The team members have extensive experience, excellent analytical skills and comprehensive operational knowledge, all of which are crucial for identifying the causes of problems and developing appropriate solutions quickly and reliably.
