Project D.E.S.E.V – Dynamic Engine Sound for Electric Vehicles
Research and Project Published on: Tuesday 22nd April 2014. (Kingston University)
D.E.S.E.V (Dynamic Engine Sound for Electric Vehicles) is a project based on the Raspberry Pi mobile-based computer hardware to establish an artificial sound for electric vehicles. Car owners without some form of automatic awareness will be able to raise awareness of their vehicles to other road users with the use of this device.
The existence and silence of Hybrid Electric and Electric vehicles already released and still to be released by vehicle manufacturers, without any form of automatic awareness, are believed to be a danger to pedestrians and other road users.
More about this project and research will be available soon on this publication.
