Presentation Title: Noise & Vibration in the New Mobility Landscape

The roar of the ICE engine is fading. But don’t worry you can still Buckle up for a future filled with electric drones, flying taxis, and autonomous semi-trucks running on alternative energy. But will these new modes of transport bring peace and quiet, or a whole new set of NVH challenges?

Join our panel of experts for a thought-provoking discussion on noise and vibration in the non- traditional automotive space. We'll explore topics like: Unique noise profiles of emerging vehicles: From the whir of electric motors to the whoosh of eVTOLs, how will the soundscape of our roads, highways, cities and sky transform?

  • Unique noise profiles of emerging vehicles: From the whir of electric motors to the whoosh of eVTOLs, how will the soundscape of our roads, highways, cities and sky transform?
  • Passenger comfort in non-traditional cabins: How can we design for a pleasant and productive ride experience, even without the familiar engine noise?
  • Safety considerations: Can noise be a valuable safety cue in a world of silent vehicles? How quiet is to quiet? How loud is to loud?
  • Regulations and noise pollution in a new era: Are existing noise standards equipped to handle the future of mobility?

This panel promises a groundbreaking conversation that will redefine how we think about noise and vibration in the transportation of tomorrow.
