We apply the idea of the Unruh effect to the description of particle production in relativistic heavy ion collisions. Because the full information about all particles is needed, we employ the spectra of hadrons generated by the UrQMD model for pp and Au+Au collisions at various energies. Particles are considered as generated straight at the Unruh horizon thus allowing estimation of the Unruh temperature of the source. The analysis is provided for different types of mesons and their charges.
