Plug-In 2008: Enhanced Vehicle Acoustics - EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Ryan Vicari with Enhanced Vehicle Acoustics demonstrates their system which will give your oh-so-quiet hybrid just enough acoustic signals to make it safe.

Here's how they describe it on their website http://evacoust.startlogic.com/index.html

"Without the familiar sounds of conventional combustion engine, pedestrians, cyclists, animals and others lack the acoustic cues that warn them of approaching vehicles traveling at 15-25 mph or less. Much like the triangular or third brake light instituted in the 1970s, we think that the development of an external sound emitting system will mark an advance in safety, because engineered and psychoacoustically evaluated sounds will provide better information about the direction and intention of vehicles, thus reducing harm and preventing accidents.

EVA has developed a subtle sound-emitting device that can intelligently alert people and animals to the presence of quietly-operating vehicles. By intelligently adding sounds where and when you need it, our solution makes our environments safer while minimizing noise pollution. In fact, our solution will provide better acoustic cues than current combustion engines at a fraction of the sound output -- yet another way electric and hybrid vehicles will change our lives."
