The test tracks are also used for development projects. Exterior noise source performance is analysed using source masking techniques for exhaust and intake improvement, sound package performance and optimization, and tyre noise optimization. Moreover, our specialist teams can assist in exterior noise sources countermeasures, design, strategy definition, and system target setting.
