Good Vibrations: Using a Driving Simulator for NVH Development
Driver-in-the-Loop (DIL) simulators are an important point of integration for different engineering departments. One of the most recent departments to join the DIL party is noise, vibration and harshness (NVH), in the quest to conduct subjective and more immersive experiments.
For various reasons, Cruden’s customers are increasingly combining the more traditional DIL simulator use cases like ride & handling and ADAS testing, with NVH research. However, depending on, for instance, the bandwidth requirements for the experiments, it is not always completely straightforward to specify a DIL simulator that provides the best of both worlds.
In the latest in our Motion Series of articles, we explore the cost and practicality issues involved in taking this approach and provide helpful measures for specifying motion systems for accurate high frequency excitations. We discuss the impact of study type and whether the research requires real-time simulation or replay via off-line simulated or recorded drive files.
