Der Tagungsband zur ATZlive-Veranstaltung „Automotive Acoustics Conference 2019“ befasst sich mit technischer Akustik und NVH, welche zu den wichtigsten Indikatoren für Fahrzeugqualität und -verarbeitung gehören. Mit den grundlegenden Veränderungen der Antriebstechnik rücken diese Aspekte daher zunehmend in den Fokus der Automobilforschung und -entwicklung. Fahrzeugarchitekturen, Antriebssysteme und Designgrundsätze werden aufgrund der weltweiten Emissionsgesetzgebungen, die energieeffiziente Fahrzeuge fördern, einer kritischen Betrachtung unterzogen. Schon in sehr naher Zukunft muss die gleiche oder eine höhere NVH-Performance durch Leichtbaustrukturen, kleinere Motoren mit Turbolader oder alternative Antriebsstränge erreicht werden. Die internationale Automotive Acoustics Conference bietet hierfür ein wichtiges globales Forum für den Wissens- und Meinungsaustausch.
