The Alicante company CHM develops together with the University of Alicante (UA) and the CTCON an acoustic pavement to generate noise and minimize the risk of overcrowding of new generation vehicles -electric- in the areas of greater passage or concentration of these cars, since due to their silent engines they can go unnoticed for nearby pedestrians.
As reported by the company in a statement, it is a new asphalt, called Fonoseguro, with which the construction company proposes that the warning sound to pedestrians before the approach of an electric vehicle is that of the rolling itself. With this, "it is intended to avoid situations of insecurity in urban centers with limited speed and with a tendency to take measures aimed at environmental improvement, where the background noise is diminished". With this alternative, CHM raises the possibility that the pedestrian "can at all times be alerted to the approach of a vehicle, regardless of the circumstances in which the driver is."

This low level of noise, along with the background noise in the cities, "makes it barely noticeable when approaching the pedestrian and reduces the time it has to avoid being run over," he adds. This is especially relevant, for example, in blind people.
