BRINGING EMERGENCY ALERT TECHNOLOGY INTO THE 21st CENTURY
COMPANY NEWS AND PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT UPDATES:
April 2018 EVA announces new technology to deliver our safety technology utilizing Smartphone capabilities, eliminating hardware devices originally required to send and received the Emergency Alert Warning signals. Due to regular and continual requests from the deaf and hearing impaired community, we decided to forge ahead without waiting for further cooperation from the US DOT or governmental bodies. In addition, we have seen an tremendous increase in accidents in 2018 involving Police chases which often result in other vehicles becoming involved due to not having received a alert of the Police chase that is unfolding behind them.
January 2018 Following Secretary Foxx's February 2016 announcement (below), no further action or interest in this or other safety technologies announced were developed and our contacts at the US DOT or US DOJ and the NTSB could no longer be reached.
October 2016 NHTSA announces "ROAD TO ZERO FATALITIES" program aimed at reducing highway fatalities. The year 2015 marked the largest increase in traffic deaths since 1966. Traffic fatalities for the first half of 2016 increased 10.4% over 2015.
February 2016 Following consideration of the growing direction of driverless cars, the lack of progress being made by the US DOT and the ongoing increase in First Responder fatalities tied to accidents caused by drivers not being aware of Emergency Vehicles with lights and sirens activated, the Company as reinitiated its drive to bring this technology to market with tests in two selected areas with restricted outside traffic.
9/10/2014 Secretary Anthony Foxx issues press release stating that roadways need to be made safer for bicyclists, walkers and runners. EAT has such technology available now. Secretary Foxx is sent letter announcing ETA can deploy such safety technology today. Note: Sec. Foxx failed to take the actions stated in his Press Release and shut down our program with the US DOT. April 2014The Company has entered into an agreement with the University of Utah's Center for Engineering Innovation to further develop the technology, reduce the receiver size to make for easier installation in vehicles and to proceed with
planning the Pilot Test scheduled for Logan, Utah.
The Company has filed its third patent for improved EV Alert Signaling as well as for additional technology applications. a federal mandate for installation into all new cars within five years or earlier. Note: This did not happen. Sec. Foxx, throughout his time in office, failed to take any action regarding V2V or Enhanced Emergency Vehicle Alerts Technology as he proclaimed he would

We are working with the State of Utah, the City of Logan, UT and Utah State University as we develop the plans to engage in this live validation study. Note: This study received approval from the City of Logan only to lay dormant due to lack of interest crated by the Obama administration. 7/1/13 Americans with Disabilities Act: Deaf and Hearing Impaired suffer from recognized and established disabilities Our technology installed in their cars provides an opportunity to enabled them, for the first time to be warned of approaching Emergency Vehicles. Our personal-use device developed for Frederik Swemmer will offer the security to this sector of our populous when negotiation the metropolitan and urban landscape as pedestrians. 6/17/13 We receive letter from U.S. DOT acknowledging our technology and their objective to develop and/or study this type of technology in the near future. We offer to provide them our prototypes for analysis, review & testing to help 6/10/13 RF Siren receives Trademark on a new Emergency Vehicle Approaching symbol tor use in new cars, before and after mandate, to alert drivers to approaching or stopped emergency vehicles. recent version of our in-car warning methodology. 6/5/2013 We are considering a live 90-day test in a small community. Presently, Beaver and Logan, Utah meet our test criteria and we have initiated discussion with respective police, fire, civic and political leaders. 5/20/2013 The Triangular Emergency Siren Alert warning symbol for dashboard or rear-view mirror positioning Trade Mark and Copyright were filed. 5/15/2013 Successful meeting with Shelby American. Carroll Shelby had always been an innovator and his team in Las Vegas continues that legacy. Gary provided input of what is, and what isn't important to OEM that resulted in potential modifications to our in-car siren delivery technology. 5/11/2013 In more than 90% of in-car testing, the results exceeded our expectations. With the stereo volume at 97.3 dB and loud conversation, our visual and audible stimuli were distinctly obvious. Our proprietary PCB has been delivered to the manufacturer for production and with all the options for connectivity added by Fred, this will be our PCB until we shrinking the electronics further. Operating temperature tested up to 138F and down to 9F. 5/5/2013 Our circuit board specialist, Fred Swemmer completed the design configuration for our new RF Receiver PCB.. 5/2/2013 Major Insurance Carrier Executives were notified of the accident reducing, life-saving and injury reducing technology that RF Siren Systems has developed. By reducing accidents, fatalities and injuries, our technology will have a significant and positive impact on municipality finances, fire & police department expenses and insurance company expenditures, lowering the expenses of all while saving lives and reducing injuries. First Responders, Tax Payers, and Insurance carriers are the ultimate financial beneficiaries of this life saving technology. 4/22/2013 Multiple circuit board prototype technology has been upgraded to a proprietary single circuit PCB circuit board that

Technologies & Product Evolution:
Proprietary Receiver PCB design completed on 5.5.13 with 5.8.13 being its first production run. This circuitry encompass and integrates the original three circuit boards technology into a single PCB with significantly greater capabilities.
Prototype V2.2. Audio warning stimuli set at 83.5 dB was audible even when radio was as high as 97.3 dB. Flashing visual stimulus was bright enough to be very visible even in bright sunlight with sunroof open. It is approximately 60% smaller than Prototype 1.1 and without an external antennae. Audible volume is adjustable and it is operational in 12V or 24V DC. Light stimulus brightness is adjustable as are LED colors.
REDUCING DRIVER DISTRACTION REDUCIES CRASHES, FATALITIES & INJURIES
Prototype V1.0 defined the capabilities of our technology and the improvements necessary to achieve our goals of having our technology functional within automobiles and emergency vehicles.
PWD - Personal Warning Device Receiver for the Deaf and Hearing Impaired communities delivers alerts in personal motor vehicles. The device will flash and vibrate to notify the user of emergency vehicles in the vicinity with their sirens and warning lights engaged.
Functional Ford Focus dashboard aggressively engages distracted drivers by flashing all the lights in a dashboard while simultaneously announcing that the vehicle is being approached by, or is approaching a stopped emergency vehicle.
Mobile Phone Application In 2017 the Company began working on integrating its patented technology into the Smartphone market, eliminating the need for manufacturing receiver/transmitter technology. Along with highway safety applications, this technology also provides a safer environment for disabled persons, those who are deaf and hearing impaired, and blind sectors of our community. It is a major stride forward in delivering this technology to additional sectors who benefit fro our life saving technology. Our new technology developments are not only applicable to Emergency Vehicles, but also to Urban Transit, Trains, Road Construction sites and anything that requires the immediate attention of a disable person, as well as drivers of personal vehicles.
