NVH-Comfort Messung

Our Test Bench – Your Solution

NVH Test Benches

As a crucial functional performance attribute, noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) became an integral part of modern product development process.
Nowadays, products must comply with both increasingly restrictive legal regulations and growing customers’ expectations. At the same time, the product development phase and costs have been reduced in order to comply with the competitive nature of market. Industries must develop more innovative designs and bring them to market before their competitor – better products must be launched on a shorter time frame and at lower costs.
To cope with, technical expertise covering the entire chain from sound and vibration generation, -transfer and –perception is a key requirement. This includes optimal interaction between sophisticated simulation and advanced experimental investigation.


One of VIRTUAL VEHICLEs strength is not only the exceptional testing and validation equipment and processes but also (further) develop best-suited experimental methodologies, testing procedures and reliable test facilities according to the customer’s and partners’ needs.

In a broad variety of challenging R&D projects and services, best possible approaches have been developed for numerous OEMs and TIER 1 and 2 suppliers.
For more than 15 years, VIRTUAL VEHICLE successfully operates comprehensive test facilities to investigate and improve the NVH properties of vehicle components and systems in automotive and rail applications.
