eVADER (2011 - 2014): Electric Vehicle Alert for Detection and Emergency Response (FP7 Transport Call)
eVADER investigated the interior and exterior sound scape of electric vehicle for safe operation, considering driver’s feedback, feasible pedestrian reactions, driver and pedestrian warning systems and pedestrian safety. eVADER analyzed innovative methods to improve the acoustic detectability of electric vehicles in urban scenarios. eVADER defined solutions to warn vulnerable users of a nearby moving vehicle while providing means for heightening the awareness of drivers in critical situations.
