Choose Your Electric Car's Sound

Roman chariot? Sherman tank? Viking attack? What's your mood today?

It's been noted that electric cars are very quiet which can pose a hazard to pedestrians who don't hear the cars coming. Proposed solutions have included recorded engine sounds, tones or even music.

It would be interesting to be able to customize the sound of your car to suit your personality or mood for the day. These sound effect loops would be the same volume of a regular internal combustion engine and would be recordings of moving, hazardous vehicles, animals or objects.

Rampaging elephant, rolling bolder, that scream from Dark Side of the Moon by Pink Floyd, the sound of your car would be uniquely you.

Keep in mind, these wouldn't be loud, just as loud as an auto engine so you'd hear it. It wouldn't be as if you'd have to cover your ears if the driver chose a Saturn 5 rocket, it would be a very quiet Saturn 5 rocket, just loud enough to know a car was coming.

       //It's been noted that electric cars are very quiet which can pose a hazard to pedestrians who don't hear the cars coming.//   

       Whoa there. For fifty years, large parts of humanity have been living with the constant noise of traffic. Finally, someone invents a car that is not so noisy. And now you want to make them noisy again. But not just noisy. Personalizably noisy. Even "just loud enough" personalizable noisy.   

       Just no. I mean, for fuxake, I'm now going to be surrounded by random car ringtones? Seriously, what were you thinking there? Do I care that you think the theme tune to Pirates of the Caribbean represents your personality?   

       Make cars quiet, with the possible exception of the occasional V12 making the throaty burble that god intended. If we lose a few pedestrians, well, shoulda looked.

       We predict the most popular sound choice for BMWs will be "Tie Fighter".

       //Seriously, what were you thinking there?//   

       I was thinking of making cars that created different sounds.   

       But if the sound does have to be standardized, and I'm seeing that's already being worked on, I don't see the problem with a 60 cycle hum, the universal sound for electricity. Seems like a no brainer to me. Gas engines makes explody sounds, steam engines make steam sound, electrical motor makes electricity sound. If you're riding a horse, horse sounds, OK you get the point.
doctorremulac3, Jul 02 2019
  

       Could infrasound implement "ominous silence"? Or maybe, for that, you'd need anti-noise technology. You know, "suddenly there were no chirping birds". That might engage directly and viscerally with an inclination to pause before stepping off the kerb.

       No, he said it needs to be standardized, so it's already chosed.

       While I love the spirit of your idea [doc] I would think there is a certain Darwinian desireableness in changes in society that weed out the slice of society that is too resistant to change even in the name of their own safety, changes like cell phones and silent electric cars. People too intent on their cell phones and other devices to take note of the vehicles, silent or not, that regularly traverse the roadways are quickly and beneficially culled from the gene pool.
