Intelligent Acoustic Monitoring

Comments Off on Intelligent Acoustic Monitoring


Acoustic monitoring in cities is usually performed using only sound pressure levels (SPLs). However, besides SPLs, there are other important factors that affect the perception of sound in a given environment. For example, the assessment of the subjective annoyance caused by noise pollution can be better predicted by using psychoacoustic parameters  taking into account the temporal and spectral characteristics of sound. Intelligent acoustic monitoring takes into account all these factors to develop meaningful models aimed at providing a better description of sound in urban areas.
