Any sound that disturbs your peace is noise, regardless of whether or not you are used to it - But have we ever stopped to think about noise pollution effects on humans?
Noise pollution can be defined as any disturbing or unwanted noise that interferes or harms humans or wildlife.
Diseases Caused by Noise Pollution:- Hypertension, Hearing loss, Sleep disturbances, Child development, Various cardiovascular dysfunctions, Dementia, Psychological dysfunctions.
Our oceans are no longer quiet. Thousands of oil drills, sonars, seismic survey devices, coastal recreational watercraft and shipping vessels are now populating our waters, and that is a serious cause of noise pollution for marine life. Whales are among the most affected, as their hearing helps them orient themselves, feed and communicate.
Other than marine life, land animals are also affected by noise pollution in the form of traffic, firecrackers etc., and birds are especially affected by the increased air traffic.
Rugged Reliability - an environmental protected enclosure and durable mounting options create an easy-to-maintain solution for your permanent monitoring.
Installation Simplicity - a range of installation options coupled with a low power design allows to run system with a battery charged via a solar panel or through an AC main.
Flexible Placement - when AC power isn't available or is costly to run, remote deployment is simplified with solar powered options
Connectivity is Key - 4G cellular, WiFi, or wired networks allow you to control meter and view your data from anywhere.
Remote Monitoring - Photonic technology provides with the capability to set up a remote monitoring station for your project, which has the capability of uploading your data to a central server via a cellular modem. Data may then be automatically processed and stored so that you may view it through your web browser.
Noise pollution is omnipresent that can easily monitor in following areas :
Airports with constant elevated sounds from air traffic, i.e. planes taking off or landing
Communities, Workplace sounds, often common in open-space offices Constant loud music in or near commercial venues
Construction sounds like drilling or other heavy machinery in operation.
Street traffic sounds from cars, buses, pedestrians, ambulances etc.
Industrial Plants Industrial sounds like fans, generators, compressor, mills
Railways & Train stations traffic
Household sounds, from the television set to music playing on the stereo or computer, vacuum cleaners, fans and coolers, washing machines, dishwashers, lawnmowers etc.
Stadiums Events involving fireworks, firecrackers, loudspeakers etc.
Mining Operations, Quarries, Trenching, Wind Farms etc.
Conflicts generate noise pollution through explosions, gunfire etc. The dysfunctions, in this case, are likely caused by the conflict and insecurity and less by the noise pollution in itself, although that compounds stress levels too.
