Noise, Vibration, and Harshness Priorities for EVs


With EVs accounting for an increasing proportion of supplier and OEM product-development investment, what are the new vistas in NVH abatement? Modern methods for combating NVH issues include “adding” sound, which has emerged as an attractive technique to counter some specific NVH challenges, as well as many others. This 60-minute Webinar from the editors of Automotive Engineering will present evolving methods for addressing various aspects of EV NVH – and examine how ever-advancing simulation methods promise new possibilities for assessing and countering NVH issues in EVs.

Topics include:

  • Automotive sound design
  • NVH software and driving simulators
  • Exterior and interior noise
  • Renewed importance of buzz, squeak, and rattle (BSR) testing
  • Changes in vehicle drive-by noise regulatory requirements
  • Key parameters of interest with these tests in the lab/track environments

An audience Q&A session will follow the technical presentations.
