Millbrook noise measurement ahead of legislation.
New noise measurement facilities at Millbrook are designed to help develop automotive technologies, including electric and hybrid vehicles. They enable engineers to measure acoustics and vibration inside a vehicle and sync it with data recorded outside. The system is ideal for, but not limited to, sound source localisation and contribution analysis.
"In 2012, we introduced the UK's first commercially available ISO 10844:2011 specification noise surface, providing the most advanced facilities for investigating and understanding vehicle noise," said Ravi Bal, senior engineer. "While the anticipated update to legislative type approval requirements did not go ahead as predicted in 2014, Millbrook is keen to remain at the forefront of the latest technology for the test and development of noise, and has invested in state of the art data acquisition hardware, and software, to provide a wide range of capabilities."
Millbrook provides vehicle test, validation and engineering services for the automotive, transport, petrochemical, defence and security industries.
