Is there any species of Chilopoda that can "vocalize" or or otherwise produce sound for the express purpose of communication, as opposed to sounds it might create as a byproduct of other movements and body functions?

An example of non-communication sound in other arthropods would be insects wings causing "buzz" sounds while in flight.

An example of a communication sound in other arthropods would be crickets (and others) rubbing their legs together to "chirp".

Do any Chilopoda intentionally create sound for the purpose of communication?
