Vehicles can normally be recognized acoustically in road traffic by the sound of their engines. However, electrically powered vehicles all sound more or less silent. This makes them dangerous for pedestrians, blind people, cyclists and other road users. Our acoustic warning system has therefore been developed for e-vehicles and generates a sound that is oriented towards the internal combustion engine. From July 2019, the installation of a pedestrian warning system is mandatory for all newly developed electric and hybrid cars in the European Union. From July 2020, all newly registered electric models will have to be equipped with an acoustic vehicle warning system. For vehicles in the EU, the sound limit will be 20 km/h. Cars driving below this speed must then emit a sound. When driving faster than this, the rolling noise generated by the tires on the road is sufficient as a warning. Sound fades-in and fades-out at a given speed threshold and the AVAS pedestrian warning system also has to automatically generate an audible signal when the vehicle is reversing. Real-time signal communication between AVAS system and the CAN Bus. The driver can easily activate or deactivate the system by means of a switch. When restarting, this AVAS must automatically be set on the „ON“ position. The AVAS consists of a dustproof and waterproof housing.
