>>its just that a lot of people will go to the extreme and abuse it alot and make others uncomfortable<<

That may not necessarily come from vehicle owner. Protecting it from being hacked when vehicle owner do not expect it to trigger off or a vehicle that hijacked completely by a nearby hackers?

@Eldredge,

And don't you think that could lead to scarring or harassing other road users?

@hm,


You are right, I agree with you on that.

If care is not taken on that, it will move from warning others to scarring others.

@SP,

That might not be a bad idea, its just that a lot of people will go to the extreme and abuse it alot and make others uncomfortable.

Have we exhausted all innovations yet? I could see that happen though, but we are thousand years ahead of us.

I can foresee vehicles turning completely to ECU systems and with internet of things many innovations might get integrated in future vehicles. Sound customization would be a good idea for a thickly populated and less inhabitant cities.

Simulated noise is a good alternative

A couple of years back , I had a chance to see an Electric Sportsbike which could run like a real sports bike on the plain roads as well as country side but made no sound.

To give the thrill of riding a roaring sports bike the designer had installed an electronic engine noise generator which compensated for the silent electric motor.

 

Such simulated noise can make up for the silent operation of electric vehicles especially on the busy streets where currently a lot of honking is required.

 

The beauty of such simulated noise that it can be turned off when say driving at night so as not to disturb the roadside dwellers' sleep

Many times the roads in india are crowded withh cows and buffalo, it would be helpful if car's sound can be customized.

We could go back to the old days and have a guy walking in front of the car waving a red flag.  I suppose then we could go back even further and have another guy picking up the wee battery pellets falling off the rear end of the car.

Maybe the sound of a balooga horn, or the sound of a heard of buffalo approaching....
