Virtual Acoustic Product Development


What we offer:
Fraunhofer IDMT focuses on methods and tools for the virtualization and adaptation of acoustic product properties as well as for active noise suppression and noise compensation. With VIPRA, Fraunhofer IDMT is providing a new digital product-development tool, which, for the first time ever, enables us to realistically experience the sound of virtual products in space – long before an initial prototype is built. Acoustic properties and their effect can thus be assessed in the early stages of prototyping and changes can be made with regard to materials and design. VIPRA can be used wherever there is a need to authentically simulate, plan and design acoustic properties, such as in mechanical and plant engineering, the automotive industry, or in the soundproofing field.

What we are looking for:
- networking in the field of virtual engineering for the targeted further development of virtual, acoustic simulation tools
- cooperations
- licensees
