Finding your Frequency

Energy Efficient Smart Horn

 A Cost Effective & Innovative Platform

A better way for drivers and vehicles to audibly communicate 

Enhancing safety, reducing unnecessary noise & driving efficiency with smarter technology

THE NEED FOR CHANGE

 
  • Roughly 1.3 million people die each year on the road globally

  • Over 6,000 pedestrians in the U.S. were killed in 2018 due to vehicle related crashes that was an increase of over 50% compared to 2009 and a 30 year high

  • Noise pollution is a growing problem in countries like India & China 

 

Meerya believes audibly communicating on the road is important, and there hasn't been any real developments to make communicating on the road more versatile. Audible alerts have shown to reduce traffic injuries by over 20%

 

In addition to enhancing safety, we are committed to driving noise pollution down in countries & cities that have excessive honking issues. We have solutions to make not only the roads safer, but quieter. Limiting excessive honking and timing out the horn when operated too long is one way we believe we can change behavioral habits in problem cities and countries.

Whether it'd be a loud, mild or soft sound, this sound device can create a variety of frequencies to suit your business needs. This device is ideal in automotive, construction, warehousing and mining industries where ranges of frequencies are needed to enhance efficiency and safety.

 

ACOUSTIC PLATFORMS for TOMORROW

Applications
How it Works
Savings & Results

Our platform is geared for the industrial and automotive industries. The range of our devices can reach up to 115 decibels from two meters, and has the ability to retract to a softer tone between 70 - 90 decibels at that same distance. Meaning, when on the highway our device can hit a sound loud enough to break through background noise, and when at rest it can produce a softer sound to make sure not to startle pedestrians as well as reduce noise pollution. In warehousing and mining, this device can be used to alert, trigger and communicate efficiently because of the different tones and frequencies it can produce. 

The basic principle of how a vehicle horn works hasn't changed since its invention. Through our patented technology and process, we are brining the horn into the 21st century. By using smarter technologies, we can create multiple or single toned pitches from this device. In addition, through our patented process our devices have a longer life cycle than what is currently available. Meaning, our devices will perform time and time again even after extensive and heavy use. 

Through component elimination and smarter technology, we save our customers money because it takes fewer materials to produce a high quality sound. Meaning you get a smaller device that not only cost less, but also is lighter. In addition, the amount of amperes this device draws is about a third of what current car horns draw. In addition, the reduced power consumption allows for thinner gauged wires, smaller fuses and elimination of relays. Meaning, less cost in assembly and materials for our customers. 

SMART HORN PLATFORM

 

Plug & Play Model

  1. Volume and tone are self-adjusting

    1. at lower speeds, volume and tone will be lower

      1. customizable sounds: quick double beep, fade low fade high, shifting frequencies, etc.

    2. at high speeds, volume and tone will default to max SPL

      1. sound will be similar to current vehicle horns

    3. at low speed, driver or vehicle can abort low/soft volume to max SPL by operating horn twice within 1 second interval

  2. Lock confirmation and alarm will adjust accordingly.

    1. lock confirmation can be soft when driver presses button once, but can default to loud setting if driver presses lock button twice quickly - depends on programming

    2. alarm will work at the max SPL after first operation

  3. Self-shifting input settings based on voltage input 

Integrated Model (CAN)

  1. This model is adaptive to work with existing vehicle sensors 

    1. will work with, but not limited to, speed, brake pressure, collision warning, automatic braking and ADAS features 

      1. adjust the tone and volume of the horn as well as sounds automatically

        1. customizable sounds for various scenarios: quick double beep, fade low fade high, shifting frequencies, etc.

  2. Lock confirmation and alarm can be customizable or standard

    1. lock confirmation can utilize unique tones or sounds to distinguish differences

    2. alarm can have more drastic tones if danger is present

  3. Self-shifting input settings based on voltage input 

    1. horn relay is not required with this model

One day while walking from my Cincinnati apartment to work, I noticed a driver almost hitting a cyclist while passing him or her - the cyclist had no idea there was a car on their left side. I'm not sure who would have been at fault had there been an accident, but I became curious to learn how future situations like that can be prevented. As a driver, you have a select few ways of communicating, & when it comes to audible communication, there's only your horn. It's great at producing loud sounds to warn of high danger situations, but very poor at communicating otherwise. Current horns don't change volume or tone based on whether you are communicating to a pedestrian, cyclist or vehicle - you only get one sound. 

That's why we developed our cost-effective smart horn, to increase the vocabulary of communication for drivers to both enhance safety & reduce unnecessary noise. 

ABOUT US

 

Ankit Patel - CEO & Founder

 

Versed in Project Management & Supply Chain, Ankit received a wide experience in multiple fields. His experience at Procter and Gamble helped him understand what needs to be true to make a new product & brand succeed. Meerya's mission is just that, launching a successful device that our customers find value in using. 

Sanjiv Patel - Chief Engineer & Co-Founder

 

A degree in Electrical Engineering, & experience in launching a business, Sanjiv first started this work in 1975 in India developing a better horn for scooters & vehicles. This research led him to patenting a prior design. Once the patent was approved, he started manufacturing the product in 1978, which led him to the research Meerya is doing today.
