A correlation between accelerated motion and a noncompact 5th dimension is proposed. The curvature invariants and the stress energy tensor in the bulk depend only on the 5th dimension w and vanish asymptotically while the proper acceleration of a static observer is proportional to 1/w. The brane (located at w = w 0) metric is conformally flat (of AdS type) with Λ = −3/w 0 2 and the invariant acceleration . Therefore, we assume that a hyperbolic observer with the rest-system acceleration a is embedded in the 5th dimension at w 0 = 1/a.
