Acoustic Vehicle Alerting System (AVAS)


Acoustic Vehicle Alerting System (AVAS) is an additional element to electrical vehicles that artificially generates a sound which will be generated through loudspeakers or actuators based on vibration of structural elements of the vehicle proportional to vehicles parameters, for example velocity, gas pedal position and gear. The system also alerts pedestrians about incoming silent vehicles for more increased pedestrians safety. According to several government from 2019 all new electrical vehicles should be equipped with an AVAS system.


  • Continental AVAS system meets the requirements of UN R138.01 (EU, China) and FMVSS 141 (USA) and fulfils automotive standards
  • The system offers modular approach to cover Low-End till High-End requirements
  • It has low system weight: ca 0,2 … 0,5 kg
