Product development is dominated by reducing time and costs, which is often contradictory to the required high quality of product properties. Therefore, the demand for efficient tools, which support the product development process, is rising. Virtual Reality (VR) can be used as such a tool. The interactive presentation of simulation results using (extended) VR technologies is very helpful — especially if both the simulation tools and the VR presentation are multimodal. Due to the increasing importance of acoustics and the expectation of an improving presence in VR environments the sense of perception should be extended. For this a special audio-visual VR-system and audio-visual models are necessary. For the current investigations a spatial, interactive auralisation-system is used. The main focus of the paper lies on the state dependent reproduction of the acoustical behavior using a real-time capable, network-based sound-server. The developed methods are explained in the paper by an automotive example.
