Supporting the capacity for cities to understand noise from the viewpoint of citizens, using IoT at the heart of citizen-centric engagement. Our vision is to demonstrate that cities can holistically incorporate noise measurement into their management of urban spaces. This pilot supports the capacity for cities to understand noise from the viewpoint of citizens, using IoT at the heart of citizen-centric engagement; and with intelligent data at the core of city-based multi-layered responses.

Our project will engage with citizens throughout the pilot using an online tool to track noise acceptability – establishing a relationship between specific user groups and noise types, levels, and duration – which will help to validate our citizen personas.
