Abstract: High levels of road traffic noise negatively impact public health in many parts of Europe, especially in cities. The introduction of electric mobility is often seen as one of the best measures to reduce noise exposition in urban environments. Compared to internal combustion engine vehicles (ICEV), there is an increased importance of tyre/road noise for electric vehicles (EV) because of the reduced masking by the powertrain noise. This effect increases further under acceleration. Firstly, it is known that in most cases tyre/road noise is higher under torque than for free rolling. Secondly, in situations which are characterized by increased driving torque, the lack of masking from powertrain noise for EVs is especially evident when compared to ICEVs. The aim of the LIFE E-VIA project is to reduce road traffic noise in cities by providing noise optimized road surfaces and tyres for EVs. Because of the mentioned effects, not only constant speed driving needs to be considered but also accelerated driving. Consequently, within E-VIA noise measurements from an indoor drum and a test track have been used to investigate the impact of different tyre parameters and operating conditions on the change of tyre/road noise under acceleration when compared to free rolling.
