Project description Noise pollution solution in Viladecans city
Viladecans is a small city located near Barcelona which has experienced a strong population growth in the recent years, making a total of 66.400 inhabitants today.
The local traffic and nightlife at this catalan locality causes high noise pollution levels which affect citizens health and well-being. For this reason, the city council decided to carry out a pilot project in order to test the different market options covering noise monitoring with a view to:
- Provide citizens with the real time information related to the noise pollution state to raise their awareness
- Analyze the data collected by the system to define and implement action plans to fight against noise excess
Our noise monitoring solution, previously installed in Alicante (20 sensors) and Girona (10 sensors), was considered the most competitive and coped with the Council requirements. The final project meant the deployment of 2 itinerant noise monitoring sensors which will be changing their locations from time to time on the basis of monitoring needs.
