One day while walking from my Cincinnati apartment to work, I noticed a driver passing and almost hitting a cyclist - 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 could be prevented. As a driver, you only have a few ways of communicating, and 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 anything else. 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 and reduce unnecessary noise.
