A long-term monitoring project, with 12 months of continuous operation time, is described where the sound sources within a large industrial area as well as the sound levels in the nearby residential area are measured. The sources in the industrial area may give rise to complaints from the neighboring residential areas, at several kilometers...

Source localization using microphone arrays has now become common practice for many applications. Their application for long term monitoring of industrial noise nevertheless remains uncommon. Hence, in 2016 we deployed four microphone arrays near a large industrial area for a period of 12 months and explored the challenges involved. The...

An increase in public awareness of noise pollution and the impact of noise on human health has led to the need for enhanced insight in complex noise situations. This insight is commonly obtained either by brief measurements or by evaluation of a simplified acoustic model. Both of these approaches however have limitations in complex noise...

The distance between noise sources at a large industrial area and a local community can be in the order of several kilometers. At such distances it may not be clear which sources are the main contributors to possible noise complaints. A long-term monitoring project is described that measures the sound sources in the industrial area and the sound...

The last decade has shown a growing number and wide variety of systems for monitoring environmental noise. This ongoing development is made possible by the availability of cheaper and smaller hardware and innovations in communication networks. The developments are fed by a growing interest in monitoring because it can help in improving noise...

Acoustic monitoring using a sensor network is a powerful instrument to assess and manage complex noise situations. It can provide a basis to identify appropriate and cost effective measures, and to assess their effect by comparing before and after implementation. It can also be an instrument for communication and policy making. However, the...

Recent developments in acoustic monitoring systems make it possible to measure complex noise situations, like urban traffic noise, continuously. Monitoring provides more insight in the noise situation, from which more specific and (cost) effective measures can be taken. Monitoring also allows direct evaluation of the effect of mitigation, or to...

A model based monitoring system is applied on a local scale in an urban area to obtain a better understanding of the traffic noise situation. The system consists of a scalable sensor network and an engineering model. A better understanding is needed to take appropriate and cost efficient measures, especially when changes to the local...

A good understanding of the acoustic environment due to traffic in urban areas is very important. Long term monitoring within large areas provides a clear insight in the actual noise situation. This is needed to take appropriate and cost efficient measures; to asses the effect of measures by comparing before and after implementation and to have...

In this paper the approach for an acoustical model based monitoring network is demonstrated. This network is capable of reconstructing a noise map, based on the combination of measured sound levels and an acoustic model of the area. By pre-calculating the sound attenuation within the network the noise map can be shown in real-time. The...
