How a Driving Simulator Can Accelerate NVH Development of Electric Vehicles


As electric vehicles (EVs) become more popular, traditional NVH challenges in vehicle design are radically changing. The NVH behavior of electrically-driven vehicles differs significantly from conventional automobiles. While quieter, EVs generate vibrations and noises different from those generated by internal combustion (IC) engines; noises and vibrations that are in a more unpleasant frequency range for humans.

Because NVH behavior critically influences driver perception of a vehicle, NVH engineers face high stakes in their efforts to achieve the specific brand DNA to meet the buyer’s and OEM’s vehicle expectations. How can engineers meet brand and customer NVH expectations on EV/hybrid vehicles within the development of a car?

This White Paper outlines the challenges NVH engineers face today and illustrates how driving simulators can be used to accelerate automotive NVH development specifically for EV/hybrid vehicles to provide NVH engineers with conclusive results in early design phases.
