Sound quality of exterior vehicle noise (SVEN)

Objective

Economic growth is related to increases in mobility and transportation demands. Therefore, sustainability has to deal with the impact of traffic on man and environment to ensure a high quality of life. SVEN focuses on the acoustical emissions of vehicle based on the fact that they cause significant annoyance. It considers requirements by automotive industry, consumers, society and environment. The main aim is a qualitative improvement of the traffic noise situation in urban and suburban areas. The work includes
- measurements and analyses for the understanding of exterior vehicle noise perception and resulting effects on man,
- provision of suitable descriptors and methodologies based on comprehensive laboratory tests,
- dissemination of expert knowledge by creating a sound database study on the transfer to other transportation devices.
