Sustainable Acoustics: A Smart Cities approach
Keywords:Sustainable acoustics, Smart Cities, citizen empowerment, noise maps, conflict zones, noise impact, population
Communication and Information technologies have optimized several processes of our daily life. Environmental Acoustics has also benefited from this progress with technological tools that have enabled the digitization of data representing noise
polluted zones in the world. For this purpose, georeferentiation procedures and noise
mapping strategies have become available to institutions, governments and also the
population, empowering citizens for the decision making and generating intelligent
societies known as Smart cities. The present Project presents these results on a definite zone where noise measurements and afterwards digitization of these data and visualization is performed. Finally, approaches to assess the impact of noise on the
population by means of noise conflict zones and noise levels to which residents are exposed are studied.
