How to make lighter (and hence more fuel efficient) cars without increasing the noise and vibration level? On the other hand, how to improve noise and vibration on a vehicle without affecting other performances? And finally, with all the modern requirements in the automotive segment and the official regulations, how to design light, soundproof car components while maintaining a good balance on cost, safety, exhaust emissions, efficiency and quality? Sounds like a complex challenge for the OEMs.
