The future of mobility and its many trends – connected, autonomous, shared and electric vehicles – is driving OEMs to rethink their approach of NVH designs. Specifically, the rise of the electric powertrain has created different challenges like new noise sources, frequency content and propagation paths for OEMs to contend with. These new requirements and challenges are vast and have the potential to greatly hinder the development of EVs.

With rigid timeframes, virtual prototypes are key to helping engineers hit their targets while ensuring a good cost to mass ratio for optimal electrified vehicles. Simultaneously, battery range is also a major concern that engineering simulation can help address. Optimize the vehicle mass to develop the highest performing EVs while reducing the amount of tests needed.

In this webinar you will learn how:

  • To design your sound package using virtual prototype
  • To meet your target and ensure optimum cost/mass ratio
  • To address NVH challenges in EVs using SEA
