VI-grade has announced an expansion of its product line of noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) simulation software and NVH driving simulators with technologies from sister company Brüel & Kjær.
Specifically, Brüel & Kjær’s desktop NVH simulator and full vehicle NVH simulator have joined VI-grade’s existing driving simulator product line. Both companies belong to HBK – Hottinger, Brüel & Kjaer.
Dave Bogema, product manager – NVH Refinement, VI-grade, says, “Incorporating the NVH Simulator capabilities into the VI-grade portfolio will enable our customers to engineer multiple vehicle attributes with an integrated set of simulation tools and simulators.
“The use and experience of virtual prototypes encompassing NVH, vehicle dynamics, ride and comfort, ADAS, AV and HMI can now be realized in concert, greatly increasing development efficiency across all these attributes.”
Guido Bairati, VP of sales and marketing at VI-grade, added, “The addition of NVH Simulators into the VI-grade Driving Simulator product family allows us to provide customers with driving simulators for all different applications, ranging from ride and handling to NVH without neglecting the needs of people developing ADAS and AV and performing HMI studies.”
