Project eVADER: final event (about improving the safety of quiet electric vehicles)

Date: 08 November 2014

eVADER is the reference EU project investigating the interior and exterior sound scape of electric vehicles for safe operation. Studies suggest that vehicles driven in electric mode are extremely quiet and represent a safety hazard for pedestrians and cyclists in traffic. Thus, the eVADER project defines solutions to warn vulnerable users of a nearby moving vehicle while providing means for heightening the awareness of drivers in critical situations.

After three years of research and development, eVADER is proud to present its final public workshop where end users will have an opportunity to assess the acoustic performance of a prototype based on a NISSAN Leaf vehicle integrating the eVADER technology.

The project team invites you to be part of this final workshop and to experience this new concept of Acoustic Vehicle Alerting Systems (AVAS), which can constitute a source of technological inspiration for future development.

The Workshop will be held on 11th and 12th December 2014. On the first day of the event, the activities will be carried out in Applus+ IDIADA in Santa Oliva. This will include project presentations and demonstrations of the prototype vehicle in IDIADA’s facilities and proving ground. On the second day, the event will continue in Barcelona city where the attendants will have the opportunity to assess the prototype acoustic performance in a realistic environment
