As a spokesperson for the Audio Control Alert System noted, every year there is an estimated 4,500 accidents involving ambulances. Audio distractions and loud music sometimes prevent drivers from hearing the sirens that let them know of approaching emergency vehicles. The EMS personnel whose jobs it is to save lives are having their own lives put at risk due to the warning sirens not being heard.
Nguyen and his team from Prolific Circuits are introducing a new technology that will lower a vehicle's audio system by up to 20 percent of its current volume upon detection of a siren, allowing ambulances, fire trucks, and police vehicles to be heard in time for drivers to stop and move over.
"The Audio Control Alert System is a safety measure that will significantly cut down the number of accidents between other automobiles and emergency vehicles," the spokesperson noted, adding that the new alert system is already creating quite a buzz in the automobile safety and emergency alert spaces.
"The Audio Control Alert System will keep the roadways safer than ever before. Emergency personnel will be able to navigate through traffic smoothly, confident that their sirens are being heard over stereo systems, calls, and other audio distractions."
In addition, other drivers will no longer be taken by surprise when a fire truck or ambulance seems to appear from nowhere. Once the siren passes, the volume will be returned to where it was. Emergency response times will stay on track and new situations due to accidents with other vehicles will be avoided.
In order to help pay for the production and marketing costs associated with launching the Audio Control System for Emergency Siren Detection, Nguyen and his team recently began a fundraiser on Indiegogo. There, they hope to raise $60,000 through crowdfunding.
About the Audio Control System for Emergency Siren Detection:
Accidents involving emergency vehicles occur far too often. With cell phone usage and in-car entertainment more prevalent, distracted driving may prevent the detection and avoidance of approaching emergency vehicles, causing increased risks of accidents and delay of emergency response to those in need. The Audio Control Alert System is a siren detector dedicated to improve behind the wheel situational awareness by controlling the car media system and alerting occupants when a siren is detected.
