Chrysler's “New” Noise, Vibration, and Harshness Test Facility 931289
Vehicle noise and vibration performance is becoming increasingly important for vehicle differentiation in the marketplace. This necessitates better facility capabilities for measuring and analyzing vehicle noise and vibration.
The “New” Chrysler Corporation Noise, Vibration, and Harshness (NVH) Test Facility located at the Chrysler Technology Center (CTC) in Auburn Hills, Michigan will predict and pinpoint the vibrations and sounds that drive motorists to distraction, while maintaining the “feel” of the vehicle on the road. It is designed to enable engineers to develop new NVH technologies.
With its ability to simulate real-world conditions, the NVH Test Facility will eliminate much of the wasted time and tremendous variability found in road testing. It will provide testing capability to guarantee that superior noise and vibration characteristics are built into vehicles at the earliest stage of design.
