A Software Tool for Noise Quality and Brand Sound Development 2001-01-1573

For noise quality and brand sound design of passenger cars a unique software tool is currently used by our clients world-wide to evaluate and optimise the interior noise quality and brand sound aspects of passenger cars on an objective basis.
The software tools AVL-VOICE and AVL-COMFORT are designed for the objective analysis of interior noise quality, for benchmarking, for the definition of noise quality targets and most important for effective vehicle sound engineering. With this tool, the target orientated implementation of the required interior noise quality or brand sound by predictable hardware modifications into passenger cars - for tailor made joy of driving - becomes feasible.
The use of this tools is drastically reducing vehicle evaluation time and sound engineering effort when compared with traditional jury subjective evaluation methods and standard acoustic NVH optimisation procedures.
The successful implementation of a desired brand sound into the vehicle requires extensive knowledge of how a particular brand sound has to be composed and how this composition can be transferred into relevant hardware modifications. Examples on brand sound engineering will be presented as well in this paper.
