The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration outlines the minimum sound emitting requirements in regulation FMVSS 141. Essentially, vehicles under 10,000lbs that operate on public roads and spaces need an audible signature above ambient street noise when accelerating, decelerating, reversing and idling. The measure is intended to protect vulnerable pedestrians and reduce injury crashes involving silently running cars.
EVAS offers the latest technology in the industry’s most reliable speaker, producing a 360-degree perimeter of sound around the vehicle. It features a wide frequency band (350Hz to 5KHz) and can be programmed with a variety of approved tones. Visit the dedicated EVAS page and listen to sample sound profiles. ECCO will work with customers to develop their unique “voice.” Electric car manufacturer Karma Automotive partnered with ECCO to do just that late last year, giving their line of luxury cars a branded acoustic signature.
