Central Branch Meeting (Hybrid Event)
Roadside Vehicle Noise Measurement: Noise Camera Research
Louise Morris, Atkins
Thursday 30 June 2022, 18:00-19:00

About the speaker:

Louise Morris is a Principal Acoustician at Atkins, where she undertakes research and consultancy services in environmental noise. She is a Chartered Engineer and has undertaken research in the transportation sector for over 15 years, including 13 years as an acoustician. She is a member of the IOA Engineering Committee and ANC Good Practice Committee.

About the event:

Excessively noisy road vehicles, which have often been modified, lead to significant annoyance and complaints from the public in both urban and rural areas of the UK. Current in-service noise compliance of vehicles is assessed through periodic roadworthiness testing (the MOT). However, many vehicles are still found to be in contravention of the relevant noise regulations when stopped in use on the road.

The Atkins Jacobs Joint Venture has recently undertaken research to establish the current methods used to enforce against excessively noisy road vehicles and to identify potential technological solutions that could improve enforcement. Later stages of the research involved the design, assembly and deployment of a prototype noise camera that was trialled in Hampshire. Louise Morris from Atkins will present an overview of the project and the outcomes of the prototype noise camera trials, which won an ANC Innovation Award in 2020.

This is a hybrid meeting, the talk will be broadcast online with a physical hub at the  Institute of Acoustics, Silbury Court, 406 Silbury Boulevard, Milton Keynes, MK9 2AF.
