As far as the car interior experience goes, perception is everything. Acoustics is an important part of it, as spurious noises are annoying and distracting. The control of NVH (noise-vibration-harshness) and BSR (buzz-squeak-rattle) is increasingly paramount in car development. Brush up on the basics in this week’s in-depth article, and learn about innovations in the field.
We also call your attention to a new DVN-I rubric, part of the Design Lounge, where we take a coffee break. It’s called the Coffee Corner, where automotive culture is illuminated with stories; mythology; jokes; anecdotes, and unwritten history. It’ll be linked to one of the newsletter articles—this week to NVH and BSR.
Speaking of three-letter initialisms, DMS is still a hot topic, with interior news from Magna; Seeing Machines; Mitsubishi Electric; Toyota, and Osram, all coming up with new developments to enhance traffic safety.
As always, we’re hard at work to ensure a steady supply of enjoyable, informative reading in the DVN Interior Newsletter. We’re glad you’re here, and we thank you for your support. Enjoy!
