The introduction of the GPF created a new challenge for gasoline engines. Recovering the engine noise signature while balancing performance and emissions requires a multidisciplinary and innovative approach to be adopted by the NVH teams.
Customers are not looking for products: they seek great experiences. Improving the perceived quality of cars is an effective way of turning the car driving into an unforgettable experience.
Heating of HVAC systems for Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) vehicles is powered using the waste heat from the engine. In Electric Vehicle (EVs) there isn’t (enough) waste energy, so the system needs to be powered by the main battery, decreasing the vehicle’s range, which is arguably the most important parameter for customers.
Creating a virtual sensor to accurately estimate the side slip angle drives a massive improvement in lateral dynamics for production cars.
Additive manufacturing offers new opportunities for development and production, but we must first meet the application requirements.
Detailed engineering of surfaces and instruments position to optimize Perceived Quality, comfort and safety.
