The Department for Noise Pollution Reduction of Barcelona City Hall has recently successfully tested the Urbiotica U-Sound noise sensor over the requirements for noise sensors to be installed in the city.
The Urbiotica U-Sound is an autonomous and wireless acoustic sensor designed to measure noise in the city. It makes continuous measurements and every minute, it sends a new equivalent continuous sound level value through the communication network. From the data captured by the sensor, it is possible to generate other indicators and alerts for exceeding the previously defined noise levels. The quality of the sensor’s measurement is equivalent to a Class II sound level meter.
Being Sentilo-compatible means it is virtually “plug and play” with the Sentilo data platform.
The noise sensors specifications required by Barcelona City can be found here in English or here in Catalan. Any company can check if their products can comply with this specification and may also contact firstname.lastname@example.org to make any comment, ask for more information or request the validation of their sensors.
