SOUND THINK­ING

Weekend Gold Coast Bulletin - - MOTORING -

The I-Pace emits a sound at up to 20km/h to warn vul­ner­a­ble road users of its ap­proach. The tech­nol­ogy, tested in the UK by Guide Dogs for the Blind, emits an alert from a speaker be­hind the grille. En­gi­neers ini­tially tried to mimic the sound of space­ships in sci-fi films but that idea was shelved be­cause pedes­tri­ans looked at the sky rather than the road as the car neared.
