Noise, vibration and harshness (NVH)

We have been a leader in NVH development for over 40 years, offering expertise in problem identification and resolution, optimisation, and concept design simulation.

Since the introduction of hybrid and electric vehicles, transmission NVH has become increasingly influential in ensuring driving pleasure and customer satisfaction. We are dedicated to helping customers deliver exceptional products. By addressing NVH targets during the design concept phase, Ricardo can ensure requirements of both the customer and product legislation are met prior to production. When NVH targets haven’t been met, we offer specialist facilities and analysis techniques for problem identification and resolution.
