Noise & vibration thought leader, Kévin Cormier speaks about Acoem Noise Radar™ at Acoustics 2022 Wellington NZ
14 Oct 2022
Acoem’s global reputation as a pioneer of AI-powered and connected solutions for noise and vibration monitoring recently received a boost with the introduction of Noise Radar™ – a system that accurately identifies major road noise contributors and allows authorities to take decisive action to eradicate the source of the problem.
Acoem is bringing the technology to Wellington, New Zealand to share its capabilities with attendees of the Acoustical Society of New Zealand (ASNZ) Acoustics 2022 Conference & Trade Exhibition in Wellington from 31 October – 2 November.
Be amongst the first to discover Acoem Noise Radar in the Southern Hemisphere
Vehicles emit excessive noise for a variety of reasons: faulty brakes, illegal modifications to exhaust systems, damaged mufflers, worn engine bearings or lack of oil in the engine.
Acoem introduced Noise Radar as an innovative way to reduce traffic/ road noise and protect the wellbeing of communities adversely affected by sound disturbances. A multi-parameter solution for road traffic noise emissions, Noise Radar aims to educate drivers/riders and raise awareness of vehicular noise pollution, identify offenders, implement automatic fining and communicate and report to communities. More importantly, it seeks to help change vehicle driver/rider behaviour.
For the first time in the Southern Hemisphere, Acoem Noise & Vibration Business Leader, Kévin Cormier (based in Lyon, France) will be delivering an insightful paper outlining Noise Radar’s capabilities and current case studies at Acoustics 2022. Kévin conference paper is titled: “Innovative approach to quantify and qualify the real traffic noise pollution”.
If you’re an environmental noise consultant, government agency or road traffic authority, this is your opportunity to discover more about this strategic road safety and pollution reduction tool.
“Noise is a leading indicator for qualifying the quality of our environment… and because of this, the control of noise pollution plays a key role in responding directly or indirectly to the demands of citizens,” explains Kévin. “Citizens are asking for more protection for themselves and for their environment.”
“I believe, citizens seek an improvement in their living environment and the preservation of their well-being,” stated Kévin. “Public authorities must equip themselves with mechanisms that allow them to act; to seize solutions — like Noise Radar — that allow them to establish immediate noise pollution observations, to establish who is the responsible party (parties) and allow the adjustment of offending practices/behaviour, through preventive, educational or coercive actions if needed,” said Kévin.
“Noise Radar is a new and innovative approach to fight noise pollution. It can quantify and qualify real traffic noise pollution and has the potential to help public authorities wanting to limit excessive road traffic noise,” concluded Kevin.
