The Sound of Silence

NVH trends for conventional and electrified vehicles

Impressions of Graz

10th International Styrian Noise, Vibration & Harshness Congress

The European Automotive Noise Conference

Sustainability, climate change and economic transformation are pushing the application of electric traction for ground vehicles.

Although the electric and hybrid vehicle market is still at a relatively early stage of development, it is soon expected to substantially transform industries and communities and is anticipated to drastically reshape the vehicle NVH scenario as we have known it. The challenges and opportunities associated with this new NVH scenario are the main theme of the ISNVH 2018 Congress.
