AVAS Systems – acoustic vehicle alert systems
Acoustic vehicle alert systems have been in development with the rise of an interest in electric vehicles. Since electric motors are very silent compared to internal combustion engines, probability of accidents have increased with electric vehicles compared to conventional vehicles. Also, electric vehicles seem to open a new era in automotive industry. Therefore, for some people they represent the future. So, a futuristic synthetic sound is expected with electric vehicles.
With FMVSS 141 – Minimum sound requirements for electric vehicles standard, US is expected to force electric vehicles with such a system by 2019. Europe , Japan and China are to follow US.
AVAS system designed by Novosim meets FMVSS requirements and open for designing a sound for different types of vehicles.
