The combination of heavy industry and residential properties in the area resulted in a variety of noise concerns for the operator.
After consultation with the client and an assessment of the contribution factors, our team from Novecom developed and implemented the QuattroSound Directional Noise Monitoring System.
QuattroSound is a state-of-the-art monitoring system to help with the measurement and assessment of complex noise environments. The compact array of five microphones and proprietary software enables accurate and timely assessment of noise sources. It determines the intensity and relative direction of various noises to paint an accurate picture of the output of nearby sound sources.
The unit is self contained and mobile, featuring solar power and a trailer mounted design. The unit is easy to move and can therefore be installed in problem areas as required. By placing the unit in situ in the community, it is able to collect data specific to individual noise concerns. While being both flexible and cost-effective, it collects data continuously and provides better quality information than traditional methods.
