For quite some time now, interior noise in cars has been getting quieter. The once dominant sound of the internal combustion engine is now in the background, and other noise sources have moved to the forefront. Due to their high RPM, alternators contribute up to 40% of this total noise inside the vehicle. In order that this noise doesn't become to dominantor disturbing, imc automated the entire test sequence. The system consists of a modular imc measurementsystem and customized software based on the imc STUDIO software platform.read more
The Solar Team Twente, a team of students of the Saxion Poly Technical College and of the University of Twente (Enschede, The Netherlands) took part in this event. Together they constructed the 'Twente One' as they called their solar vehicle. With new regulations for the 2007 event, they went for a completely new and innovative design. Not only mechanically, but also electrically and electronically the Solar Team Twente uses the newest technology. The heart of the electronics featured an imc C-SERIES intelligent data logger.read more
Stationary and mobile testing go hand in hand in the development of modern automotive technology. Up to now, the conversion of the test vehicle was a significant obstacle when changing between mobile and stationary testing.The aim was to implement a modern data logger system that combines the requirements of mobile and stationary testing.read more
As engines become quieter, certain vehicle components are becoming perceivable which were previously drowned out by engine noise. For this reason, acoustic measurement now faces new challenges.read more
“Fleets Go Green” is a project designed to analyze and evaluate the efficiency of electric vehicles in everyday use with a factory fleet as the test subjects. imc Test & Measurement GmbH is participating in this research project sponsored by the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety (BMU). The research results will form the basis for the decision to convert regular vehicle fleets to electric cars in the future.read more
