Abstract: Last year 3 fire fighters in Sweden died when working at traffic accident sites, in Sweden alone there have been over 3958 traffic accidents related to road construction. If we could better the visibility and ability to communicate with motorists in the surroundings of the emergency vehicle, road construction site or similar we could save life’s and cost related to accidents and time lost in dense traffic.
To solve this, we developed EVAM ™ evamsystem.com . EVAM™ is a compact transmitter mounted locally in the emergency vehicle or stationary at strategic places. The system transmits a signal that is received by motorists in the close surroundings to alert the surrounding motorists of the approaching emergency vehicle by playing a warning message through the cars audio system. By using built in functions in the cars audio system EVAM™ guarantees that only motorists, the concerned, are made attentive. No receivers need to be installed.
