Cerritos Infiniti Confirms, 2012 Infiniti M35H Is Now Equipped With Audiable Pedstrian Warning System
January 19, 2011 – Cerritos, Calif. – Cerritos Infiniti confirms, Infiniti’s new 2012 Infiniti’s M35h is not only the first-ever Infiniti Hybrid, it is the world’s first hybrid to feature a standard audible pedestrian warning system.
The Infiniti M35h is capable of traveling faster and farther on electric-only mode than conventional hybrid designs. The new audible warning system, called Approaching Vehicle Sound for Pedestrians (VSP), which uses a range of distinctive sounds to help ensure the safety of other road users. VSP automatically works from start-up to approximately 20 miles per hour, cutting back in at approximately 15 miles per hour as the vehicle slows.
“We’re are looking forward to having the Infinity M35h available to our customers. They will enjoy the added safety feature that other hybrid vehicles do not offer.” said Cerritos Infiniti General Manager, Bill Stephans.
The computer controlled system links an in-car sound synthesizer with a speaker built in to the front bumper. Instead of just a single tone, a range of high-low sounds at different volume levels.
The noise sweeps from high to low frequency depending on vehicle speed and whether the Infiniti M35h is accelerating or decelerating. It is loudest at start-up to give a clear indication the vehicle is beginning to move off, while an intermittent tone is used when reversing. Both sounds calculated to ensure the Infiniti M35h cannot surprise pedestrians and the visually impaired as it approaches.
