Active Sound Design

Mixing console

Acoustics in the context of electric vehicles and autonomous driving

  • A full-throated engine sound despite downsizing
  • Electric vehicle warning sounds that fit the brand and comply with the regulations
  • Interior sound that simultaneously provides feedback on the operating state and arouses positive emotions

Synthetic sound components are useful, whenever a target sound cannot be achieved cost-effectively by means of physical modifications. Individually designed and interactively reproduced, they achieve the desired perception – from driving sound to chimes.


Anything is possible…

…but what is actually reasonable?

One of the major challenges in the development and design of synthetic sound components is to weigh up content, technology, perception and economy:  

  • What will users like? What will fit the brand?
  • Which technical possibilities are available and also cost-effective?
  • How can I design and evaluate my synthetic sound considering the overall sound context right from the early stages of development?
  • Is the desired perception achieved?
  • Engine sound enhancement
  • Interior active sound design
  • Exterior active sound design
  • AVAS
  • ADAS: warning and information sounds

Investigate.

Develop.

Design.

Active Sound Design: from perception to creation

Our jury testing solutions, psychoacoustic analyses and user studies will give you in-depth insight into the perceptions and preferences of your customers. Validate your synthetic sound designs right from the early stages of development with our NVH simulator, which creates a real-life sound context even when real prototypes are not available. Incorporating your control units and sound development environments speed up the development process.

Make the most of our expertise and latest research findings. In close cooperation with you, we develop and design sound models - from the first concept right through to the application on your target platform.
