Smart Sensor for Autonomous Noise Monitoring

This project involves development of a cost-effective sensor for long-range wireless, autonomous traffic noise monitoring. The proposed Smart Sensor for Autonomous noise Monitoring device would provide a highly efficient means of monitoring and reporting highway noise, airport noise, construction noise, and many other noise-related situations in which noise monitoring is needed. The device will report noise measurements periodically (e.g., hourly or daily, as desired) to a receiver located up to 10 miles away. The sensors are expected to cost less than $100 each (in large quantities), making it cost-effective to monitor many locations simultaneously.
