Electric vehicles are becoming common place within the commercial and public transport sectors. Although there are many differences between the combustion and electric engine, the most noticeable thing is the sound they make.
Sound is an important contributor to road safety for pedestrians, and not only for the blind or visually impaired. Studies have concluded that electric vehicles pose a danger to vulnerable road users (VRU) and increase the risk of incidents with pedestrians by up to 80%.
Brigade have developed a multi-frequency Electric Vehicle Sounder, integrating our patented bbs-tek® technology. This gives greater directional information to the ear allowing the VRU to instantly locate where the sound is coming from and to take evasive action.
Warns pedestrians and other VRU's that an electric vehicle is approaching
Directional and locatable - the sound is only heard in the hazard zone
Front and rear speakers solution
Pitch and volume increase with speed to mimic an internal combustion engine
Sound cuts out above a given speed threshold
