Vehicular Acoustics Monitoring

In 2010, automakers launched four electric vehicles, with promises of improved emissions and reduced fuel costs.  As a possible turning point in the adoption of this new technology, might there be other more palpable implications to our everyday lives?  
 
 
 
This project attempts to document the changing audio street scape over the next 30 years, a time span which is expected to yield a sizable adoption of EVs.  Manufacturers are experimenting with installing various synthesized noises in EVs as a safety measure.  How might these sounds reshape our experiences of urban spaces?
