With contributions from 10 international OEM companies!

The advent of electrical, electronic and mechatronic fields have demonstrated the potential of not just reducing noise and vibration in vehicle using active technologies, but has also generated the scope of introducing sounds and vibrations that could drive positive emotional response. This is a major requirement for high performance cars and is also growing its importance in the field of mass-produced vehicles.

This conference will seek to explore the latest challenges in this area and unique solutions that industry leaders are employing to move things forward.

We hope that you can join us in Crewe, the home of Bentley Motors Limited and help us make this event successful and regular in the automotive NVH calendar.

• Explore advanced passive and active NVH control-solutions, to save weight and
costs while optimising CO2 efficiency and passenger comfort

  2. 2. Dear Colleague, The field of automotive refinement (noise, vibration, harshness and sound quality) has probably seen the introduction of new challenges as no other field. The increasing customer demands and aspirations, new powertrain/drivetrain technologies, legislative changes and demand for weight and cost reduction continually add to the traditional challenges of refinement and psychoacoustics. The biggest challenges on the way seem to be thrown up by alternative powertrain/drivetrains and the balance between refinement and acoustic character. The advent of electrical, electronic and mechatronic fields have demonstrated the potential of not just reducing noise and vibration in a vehicle using active technologies, but has also generated the scope of introducing sounds and vibrations that could drive positive emotional response. This is a major requirement for high performance cars and is also growing its importance in the field of mass-produced vehicles. As the nation of largest development and production of high performance cars that drives unique trends in the field of automotive refinement, we found it important to organise an event here in the UK – an event that brings the global experts in this field together to discuss their views. This conference will seek to explore the latest challenges in this area and unique solutions that industry leaders are employing to move things forward. We hope that you can join us in Crewe, the home of Bentley Motors Limited and help us make this event successful and regular in the automotive NVH calendar.

Some questions to be addressed: • What are the optimal driving scenarios which are characterised by rapid changes in driver emotional state? • Can easily identifiable emotional responses provide a deeper and more natural relationship between the driver and the automobile than what is achievable by means of only stimulus and response? • Can laboratory testing with human participants be sufficient to extract the key acoustic features which correlate with the human emotional response? • How to differentiate from competitors for a personalised acoustic driving experience: is there a common acoustic semiotic language which communicates the information which produces the driver emotional response? Marco Ajovalasit, Senior Lecturer in Human Factors, Human Centred Design Institute, Brunel University, UK Mr Arber Shabani, Ph.D. researcher, Brunel University, UK 09:00 – 12:00 Workshop A:Test Drive:Technology demonstration of an ANC system in a Lotus Evora • Demonstration of the Road Noise Cancellation System (ARNC) • Demonstration of Engine Order Cancellation System (EOC) • Demonstration of Electronic Engine Synthesis System (iESS) These demonstrations take place on a local public road near Bentley. As the Evora has only one passenger seat, each demonstration is limited to one individual at a time. Carl Dryhurst, Senior NVH Engineer, Lotus Engineering, UK 09:00 – 12:00 Workshop B: Noise Optimisation for EV/HEVs In EVs/HEVs the masking noise from the internal combustion engine disappears and noise from new sources become audible, including those from the alternative propulsion systems, power converters, pumps, fans, and from the car's structure itself due to road and wind noise. This workshop will examine all these challenges and solutions to ensure the optimal sound experience to the drivers of EV/HEVs.
