With rapid urbanisation, noise pollution is a growing concern amongst residents. In Singapore, there is a concerted effort by various government agencies to look into ways of creating highly liveable residential areas through mitigating noise nuisances arising from higher density developments. The result is improved physical comfort levels in the built environment. This lecture brings together five experts in active noise control (ANC) and sound sensing from the UK, Japan, USA and Singapore. They will address the issues relating to ANC implementation and showcase the successful deployment of ANC and acoustic sensing technologies.

Topics to be presented include:

  • Physical Principles and Practical Applications of ANC
  • ANC by Decentralised System
  • Active Acoustic Window
  • Noisy Vehicle Surveillance Camera
  • Drive-by City-Scale Environmental Noise Mapping
  • Subjective Annoyance Evaluations of Singapore Urban Noise Database

This PSS session is hosted by NEA’s Singapore Environment Institute (SEI), and co-organised with Nanyang Technological University’s School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering as well as NEA’s Environmental Technology Office (ETO).
