One of the hardest-fought battles in developing a new vehicle is the battle against noise, vibration and harshness, or NVH. Honda attached NVH on all fronts. In this episode of SAE Eye on Engineering, Editor-In-Chief Lindsay Brooke looks at Honda's 2018 Odyssey minivan. SAE Eye on Engineering also airs Monday mornings on WJR 760 AM Detroit's Paul W. Smith Show. Access archived episodes of SAE Eye on Engineering.
Spotlight on Design: Insight features an in-depth look at the latest technology breakthroughs impacting mobility. Viewers are virtually taken to labs and research centers to learn how design engineers are enhancing product performance/reliability, reducing cost, improving quality, safety or environmental impact, and achieving regulatory compliance. Extreme environment sensors require extreme environment cables that can reliably perform in temperatures up to 2300° F, withstand intense vibration, and have extraordinary strength. In the episode Sensors: Noise Avoidance and Cable Manufacturing (8:53), an engineer at Meggitt Sensing Systems demonstrates the intricate process of developing cable for sensors used in these situations.
