Mvoid Release 2.3 is available!
Karlsruhe, Germany (April 15th, 2020) – Mvoid Technologies GmbH, the experts for Acoustical Virtual Product Development for Automotive, Professional and Consumer Audio, is bringing the latest version 2.3 of the Mvoid methodology (Automotive Audio and Professional Audio) to the market. The new release 2.3 is now available.
The new version adds process level six to the Mvoid Automotive Audio product range. This process level enables the measurement of physical audio products and is a key element for the creation of digital twins. Furthermore, many additional and new functions in the Mvoid process levels (Automotive Audio an Professional Audio) one to five are introduced in the new release. These provide enhanced accuracy, increase usability and allow a closer coupling of all functions.
Extension of the product range by process level 6: Measurement of Audio Systems.
Why it’s important?
The Mvoid methodology for tier level six focusses on measurements of physical audio prototypes and products. Tier level six utilizes a multi-channel acoustic measurement system fully integrated into VRtool. It guarantees a smooth transition from virtual prototypes to physical prototypes. Even the creation of a digital twin of the audio system is possible.
This Mvoid measurement method defines a robust, repeatable process that provides accurate, detailed insight into mechanical and performance characteristics of audio components and systems, including in-situ room acoustic interaction. Critical to understanding manufacturing and assembly execution of design, the Mvoid tier level six measurement process converges the implementation of Virtual Product Development into real audio products through a robust validation process.
For example, the manufacturing variance can be monitored and, if necessary, adopted to minimize the production variance from a reference target, or performance variances in series vehicles can be analyzed. In addition, possibilities for the maintenance of sound systems in vehicles are opened up by a digital twin. You can find more information about the Digital Twin in Automotive Audio in our technical article “Digital Twin: Use Case Automotive Audio“.
Optimizations and additional functions in Mvoid process levels 1 – 5 at a glance
- Generation and export of balloon plots
The new release 2.3 allows the generation and export of balloon plots in process levels three and four for improved visualization of the directional characteristic. The method displays the sound pressure level or radiated sound power on the surface in spherical form in color.
- Ray tracing with advanced source modelling
Ray tracing methods with advanced source modeling provide even more accurate room acoustics. The newly integrated open source format CF2 allows a directional resolution of 5 degrees and frequency bands of 1/3 octave. Sources can be defined more precisely (spatial and frequency domain).
- Automated simulation results
The automatic post-processing feature calculates the sound power over frequency for a specific or all selected locations. At the push of a button, so to speak, the acoustics experts receive an evaluation of the sound or frequency at a specific point.
