Need a WEATHERPROOF version? Please see: W-PAWS




Alert pedestrians to the presence of your EV, with ours PAWS Pedestrian Alert Warning System. The perfect buddy for your electric vehicle! Also known as an Acoustic Vehicle Alerting System (AVAS). 

PAWS in an all-in-one unit that packs-a-punch and allows you to play one of 7 user selected / user programmable MP3 audio tracks, to warn pedestrians or cyclists that you are near. You can even emit a truck reversing tone for when you're reversing!

If beeping your car horn would be inappropriate or potentially dangerous, use PAWS instead! Trigger one of the gentle and pedestrian friendly alert tones (such as a simple bike bell sound, to a futurist electric car moving tone), to warn the unsuspecting person of your presence. 

Check out the video of the PAWS unit going through 7 sounds.

Simply replace the default tones with your own, using the supplied USB cable! That's right, just "mount" the PAWS system like a USB thumb drive, on your PC or Mac to replace the MP3 files with your own audio tracks. You can even make your Telsa or Leaf sound like a V8 engine if you like!

Not sure what sound to use? That's OK -- if you can't find one to your liking, let us know, and we'll help you find one that does suit your vehicle / lifestyle / sound you're after!

Standard (replaceable) MP3 tones can be loaded.

This is our original version of PAWS -- in one SELF CONTAINED unit (including a built in speaker). Place the unit in your EV's Frunk, and wire through to you cabin.

To trigger a sound, simply send a negative pulse (from Terminal 1) to one of the self inputs (Terminals 2 through to 8).

Adjustable volume pot means that you can quieten down the PAWS' 10watt output, to a quieter level to suit your needs, depending how loud the PAWS unit is in your EV. You can even use one of the PAWS triggers to make a 'reversing' tone if you like.

The PAWS units can be installed on fork-lifts, pallet loaders, or other industrial vehicles that need to be able to alert others, to your presence.

Hook-up is easy. Plug the unit into 12-40v DC using the supplied plug cable. Add whatever type of trigger button you like, to suit your vehicle.
