Using Neural Networks to Predict Customer Evaluation of Sounds for the Foresight Vehicle 2002-01-1125

Sound quality targets for new vehicles are currently specified by jury evaluation techniques based upon listening studies in a sound laboratory. However, jury testing is costly, time consuming and at present there are no methods to include customer expectations or brand requirements.
This paper describes a neural computing approach that is being developed to generate knowledge and tools to enable objective measures of a product's sound to be converted into a prediction of the subjective impression of potential customers without carrying out the traditional jury evaluation tests.
