Wind Noise Sound Quality

Industry: Automotive

Applications: SVQ Target Development

An automotive glass supplier wished to understand the impact of Acoustic Laminated Glass with respect to wind noise for different vehicles and segments. Sound Answers collected various acoustic binaural recordings in-vehicle at the driver’s and passenger’s positions during normal driving conditions, with windshields of different glass composition. Some of the recordings were used to synthesize virtual sounds representing different characteristics. Recorded and synthesized signals were then used to design a formal Sound Quality jury test where jurors were asked to indicate their preference. The results of the subjective tests were correlated to wind noise sound quality metrics to develop a predictive model that can be used in Product Development and evaluation.
