Vehicle Dynamics

It is important for a customer to perceive that a vehicle does not require too much braking or steering effort, or that the car does not have too much body roll. Modern cars have active suspensions, brake systems that utilize ABS and even steering that is speed variable. This topic area aims to provide information about the latest developments in the area of vehicle dynamics.

Designing the Sound Experience with NVH Simulation
Creating the perfect vehicle sound is a critical challenge that needs the buy-in of diverse decision-makers to establish targets, and greater inter-departmental collaboration to realize them. Free-driving sound simulation captures subjective sound preferences with real-time modification. It helps to cascade that target sound down to subsystem or... Full Content »
